As the days get longer and warmer, I prepare for summer. This  year, I’ll rent out my home again for the month of August.  If you’d like to spend that time in a beautiful home in the center of a lively French town, cook to your hearts’ content in my professional kitchen, sit in the flower and herb-filled garden or in the courtyard, have a little barbecue as you look out at the priest’s garden, swim in the new Olympic-sized municipal pool that is five minutes from the house, visit the landing beaches, Honfleur and other ports of call in Normandy, then let me know.

Here’s what Jennie says about her experience renting the house:  “It’s so peaceful, so beautiful, so comfortable. I just love Louviers and I can’t wait to come back.”

And here is what Claire says:  “What a beautiful spot. I’ll come back, for certain.

And her is what Paul and his family had to say “Sitting in that kitchen, enjoying the market, driving out into the Norman countryside…what a wonderful time we had.”

    Dear Susan,
    You probably don’t remember me, but we have met. My husband and I had signed up for one of your luncheons that was on the first year anniversary of 9/11 which was cancelled, because I suppose, that people were too afraid to fly, but we had gleefully come to France. I had read all of your books and we simply had to take a glance at your home, the cathedral, and the town. My husband and I were walking out of a pharmacy and to my amazement, there you and your little girl were walking toward us on the sidewalk. Embarrassingly, I briefly stopped you, introduced ourselves, and expressed our disappointment. You were kind.

    We may be interested in renting your home for August. What is the price please?

      What a lovely note! My little girl is now six feet tall! I’ll give you details by email. Take good care.

  2. I have stayed in Susan’s beautiful home for 2 weeks. It is an absolute dream to cook in her professional kitchen. The town of Louviers is so gorgeous and driving around the surrounding areas can keep you occupied for months. The local markets are colorful and the people are engaging. I can’t recommend staying in her intriguing home enough.

    I’m just curious, but how did your home fare during the war? What about the town? My uncle fought in Normandy and I often wonder about your house? Enjoy your blog and your pictures of food and France. Keep it up. Carole H.

      Hello, Carole,

      My house survived by fortunate accident. Most of the town burned to the ground. There are gorgeous pockets still standing throughout the town, but much was reconstructed. Thank you! I’m glad you wrote!

    Dear Susan,

    I’m reading your book ‘On Rue Tatin’ for the third time since i have bought it many years ago.
    I just love it so much.
    When i was looking for more books from you i came across this site.
    It’s just wonderful to see the pictures here on the site and seeing how beautiful your home is.

    Thank you so much for your recipes, it has totally changed the way i cook .
    Greetings from The Netherlands!

    • Susan says:

      Dear Nancy!
      Thank you so for the compliment, and how nice to hear from you. I’m so glad you loved the book and the recipes. I’ll let you know when the new one is ready. For now, I’m still writing it.

      I love the Netherlands – Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities. For one thing, everyone there is tall. For another thing, everyone there rides bicycles. What could be better?

      Take care, and thanks again.

    Hello Susan. I was wondering if your home would be for rent next summer or fall….2015. We are thinking of coming to France for our 20th anniversary. I am a retired caterer and a present cheese and food buyer for a local wine market. I would love to have a professional kitchen to cook in! Let me know when or if it is available and the cost. Thank you! Best, Pamilyn Hatfield

    • Susan says:

      Hello Pamilyn,

      You would love cooking here, and the house will definitely be for rent next summer. If you’ll send me your email address, we can discuss details. Thank you for writing! All the best,


  8. Peggy Vincent says:

    my husband and I might be interested in renting your house in Sept or October 2017. Can you send me details, please?

  9. Peggy Vincent says:

    How much of each year do you rent out your house in Louviers? we’ll be in Normandy for a week this coming October, stopping in Giverny for a couple of days on our way. Perhaps we’ll take a detour and drive by your lovely house! What is the approx price to rent for a week, low season?
