We had a wonderful stay at Le Clos Jouvenet for 4 nights while we explored Rouen, Normandy and the Somme. Catherine was a truly exceptional host who really went above and beyond offering recommendations of restaurants and sights to visit. Nothing was a problem for her, even when we left extremely early on morning to go to the war fields. Breakfast was delicious with a different selection every morning. The house and rooms are impeccable and beautifully decorated - no wonder they have featured in many magazines.
If your only going to stay in one B&B in France, make it this one. Highly recommended

Room Tip: We stayed in Le Verger - very large room and bathroom

We had a great 2 day stay in June 2013 at Catherine DeWitt's lovely B&B. The home is a 15 minute walk- only hard to find the very first time- from the historic center. Very quiet property, beautiful, and she and her husband are gracious hosts. She was very helpful with sights and restaurants in town, and allowed us plenty of solitude as well. The breakfast was fantastic- beautiful breads, fresh OJ, tasty jams and excellent coffee. I highly recommend this jewel of a B&B.

We had a little trouble finding Le Clos Jouvenet because of the narrow one way streets and our mapping program. However, once we found it, and Catherine directed us (backwards) down their driveway, we quickly figured out that we had landed in a fabulous place. The gardens that greet you are magnificent, even on a rainy day in April. The house itself is beautiful, well maintained and beautifully decorated. Catherine showed us a couple of different rooms (we were the only guests there on our first night) and let us pick which one we wanted. We chose the largest one with a king sized bed and a beautiful large bathroom. I loved the decorating, colors and the way everything coordinated. After we settled in, Catherine invited us for an afternoon drink of local cider and we enjoyed a great chat. She gave us recommendations of restaurants and even made our reservation for that evening's dinner. She was so helpful with advice about touring as well. For example, she recommended the local roads instead of the highway to Giverny, which turned out to be a good choice. The house is on a hill and it's a walk into Rouen, but we enjoy walking and appreciated a good walk after all of the wonderful French food and wine we consumed! In the mornings, we enjoyed a great breakfast in the sun porch overlooking the beautiful garden, where Spring was just starting to appear. Catherine (who is Belgian and speaks perfect English) has been in the hospitality/travel business for her career and it showed in every corner of that house. The details and special touches made our stay fantastic. Le Clos Jouvenet was the best B&B we stayed in during our 7 weeks in France!

Catherine de Witte's delightful villa set up the hill above Rouen, steps right out of a Sunday supplement, with its antique furniture and paintings, wooden and tiled floors, little nooks and corners, a large garden with loungers, all pulled together with Farrow and Ball paints and wallpapers. Our room, St Joseph only has a small shower room but we took it because it has a lovely view over the garden to the city. Our bed was very comfortable with crisp linen sheets and square french pillows with a long bolster. The room has a small wardrobe and a kettle, hairdryer, radio, soap, shampoo, fluffy towels and a hot water bottle, though the room was lovely and warm.

The breakfast is typically french - croissants, baguettes, viennoiserie, jams, fresh coffee and tea, fruit, orange juice, cereals and fromage frais.

It's an easy 15 minute walk into the centre of town or 5 minutes to the Metro. Catherine gives you a map and can recommend restaurants. There is an excellent exhibition of impressionist paintings running till July at the Musee des Beaux Arts. There is free wi fi and parking inside the property is accessed from the street at the back. Lovely.

I recently stayed at Le Clos Jouvenet in picturesque Rouen. Catherine DeWitte & her husband were charming hosts and went out of their way to be helpful. The house & garden is gorgeous and I had a room overlooking the cathedral. The room was beautifully decorated with special touches (like bathrobe) as is the whole house. The French breakfast was generous with delicious croissant & French bread or brioche. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for the room overlooking the cathedral & garden.
