Good value compared to other hotels we checked on the island, but not cheap for a 2 star hotel. good location on the marina near restaurants and shops. Rooms are basic but are relatively big. Internet is available in the rooms.

I leave on Thursday morning so . . . no Liseux.
I took a more leisurely tour of the Notre Dame Cathedral ...
After another breakfast bag we hit the road, making our way further north towards Rouen. This was quite a scenic drive as we drove through lots of small villages, forests and passed rivers. On arrival in Rouen we parked next to the Notre Dame (they're seriously in every town, this one had about 3 cathedrals that looked very similar and really threw off my sense of direction). This one was even ...
