“Owner makes you feel special”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

We really enjoyed our 1 night stay. The house is beautiful and very well looked after. The owner Catherine was so nice, and offered us a drink when we arrived. The breakfast in the veranda was a real treat. Everything was perfect. Do go!

Me and my partner stayed here and the hosts were gems! beautiful location, peaceful gardens, lovely rooms and the breakfasts were excellent - I recommend a stay here, just a short stroll from the centre and a perfect base to explore the area, by foot or car.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. This is the wonderful B&B and Catherine is the perfect hostess. I don't have any new information beyond what has already been submitted, but I second all the positive comments. A wonderful time visiting Rouen!

My husband and I just returned from France. We toured northern France - WWI battlefields and Normandy. Not wanting to be moving everyday, we booked four nights at a great bed and breakfast, Le Clos Jouvenet, in Rouen as our home base in Normandy. The B&B owner is a lovely lady (with a very friendly cat). She provided us with maps and recommended a number of restaurants. We rented the St. Joseph room with a wonderful of view Rouen. There was also a very nice sitting room down the hall, where we could relax and put our feet up. Breakfast was very good - we did not want to leave.

The B&B was easy to locate and parking was available on site. The walk to Rouen centre was reasonable (< 20 minutes) and we enjoyed the many sites, restaurants and shops that Rouen has to offer.

We began our 2 week vacation to Normandy in this jewel of a home. The house, rooms and furnishings are understated, beautiful and inviting. The garden is stunning. The photos on the website do not do this place justice....it is much more lovely! The house is located beyond the main tourist attractions, but it is a manageable walk, and if one is tired, there is always the metro as well as taxis. Our host Catherine could not have been nicer. She is a warm and intelligent person who made us feel very welcome. She had many ideas of sites to see and excellent restaurant recommendations. This was such a wonderful way to begin our vacation, and I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Over a number of years we have stayed in many chambres d'hote in France, often very good, but I can confidently say this beats them all. If I were permitted to give it six stars I would!

Le Clos Jouvenet is a very appealing traditional house in a beautiful garden in an attractive quiet area of Rouen overlooking the city. The house is beautifully furnished with attractive bedrooms and our bathroom had top quality fittings, yet there was a warm relaxed atmosphere, even in dismal weather.

What made it special, however, was the hosts, M. and Mme de Witte. We were made to feel really welcome from the moment of our arrival. Catherine met us where we had arrived by car in the road at the back in the rain and directed my rather tricky reversal into their garden. Once we had put our things in our room she sat us down with drinks and gave us excellent advice on things to see, shopping and restaurants in Rouen. We really slept well and the breakfast was lovely.

The only slight problem is that for us, in our 70's, it is about half an hour's walk from the Vieux Marche, uphill on the way back. Catherine gave us details of buses, etc, but on the second evening, after we had walked a lot, M. de Witte volunteered to drive us to the restaurant in the Vieux Marche, saying he had to meet someone at the station. Service! Incidentally, we ate in three restaurants recommended, two of which they booked for us, and all were excellent.

This was a delightful stay, and if we are in the Rouen area again, we would not dream of staying anywhere else.

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
