Rent On Rue Tatin – your new French country home!
Another lovely group has just left On Rue Tatin with misty eyes as they recounted their adventures and said goodbye to the house and the garden. They cooked, they visited, they grilled…it’s been an unseasonably warm and sunny time, and they took great advantage of it!
If you want a similar experience, that of living in comfort like a local and becoming part of a lovely and lively French town, On Rue Tatin is for rent. Getting there is an easy drive from Paris, and once you’re there you won’t want to leave. You’ll visit the shops and the market then cook in the professional kitchen. You’ll sip apéritifs outside in the shade of the apple, fig, and pear trees; you’ll be transfixed by Notre Dame de Louviers across the street. If you’re lucky there will be a concert in the church which will waft across the street over the garden, in perfect pitch!
You’ll take most of your meals outdoors, though the timbered dining room will tempt. And if it’s cool, you’ll want to build a fire there or in the kitchen, to stay cozy.
When the sun goes down the lamps go on, making things even more magical. And if you decide not to cook and to explore the restaurants in the area, there are many to enjoy.
So, though you won’t really ever want to leave the house you must, because Normandy constantly amazes, and it lives up to its reputation as the most beautiful region in France. There are the landing beaches, Giverny (Monet’s house), the valley of abbeys, the gorgeous little towns each with its special market, Rouen and its Cathedral, museums, concerts…the list goes on.
On Rue Tatin sleeps four couples easily; it’s got all the amenties you could want, and not far away is an Olympic sized pool, bicycle paths, walking trails, chateaux and abbeys…
If you have questions, please just write to email@example.com and we’ll get you all the information you need. And if you’ve been watching the television and seeing some of the troubles in France, please don’t be concerned. They’re much dramatized, much localized. You will be far from the fray at On Rue Tatin, without being out of the French loop.
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. Get your copy of this marvelous book
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 its 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.
