ON RUE TATIN will be for rent as of JANUARY 1, 2018!!

I’ve just said goodbye to the latest lovely renters who enjoyed On Rue Tatin, after listening to  all of the marvelous things they experienced while living here.  From one end of Normandy to the other and beyond, they know it, they’ve lived it, they’ll never let it go!  As Carol said “When I read your book then met you, this experience just “spoke” to me!”

 From Susan’s book, On Rue Tatin….

Susan Loomis arrived in Paris twenty years ago with little more than a student loan and the contents of a suitcase to sustain her. But what began then as an apprenticeship at La Varenne École de Cuisine evolved into a lifelong immersion in French cuisine and culture, culminating in permanent residency in 1994. On Rue Tatin chronicles her journey to an ancient little street in Louviers, one of Normandy’s most picturesque towns.

I predict the conversation will never end, for as those of you who have read On Rue Tatin and keep in touch,  it “spoke” to me as well, and has continued to do so in the most gracious way possible.  Living here was my dream, and now it can be yours as well.

On Rue Tatin is situated in the center of Louviers. Directly across the church is the “collegiale” which is the name for a church that looks like, but isn’t, a cathedral.  Bustling cafes dot the streets, there are five incredible bakeries within a three minute walk, and the renowned farmers’ market is around the corner.  Charming, family-owned restaurants are peppered throughout the town center, with others a short drive away in neighboring towns, or the countryside.

Louviers is ideally situated to visit Bayeaux and the landing beaches, Honfleur, Etretat, Deauville, Trouville, Cabourg and all the other lovely seaside Norman towns. It’s a stone’s throw from Monet’s home at Giverny to the east, and Rouen with it’s towering Cathedral, chic boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants to the Northwest.  The Loire Valley is two hours away, and Paris is an hour by train or by car.  It’s location is the reason I live here – urban life and country life meld here in the most perfect way.

As Carol just said to me, she “lived like a local” while at On Rue Tatin, buying wine from the shop next door, getting to know butcher and baker, nearly crying when she said goodbye to her favorite restaurant.  So, come take advantage of the France and French life and “live like a local”.
