Discovery of the village of La Bouille on the banks of the Seine
Take advantage of your stay in Rouen to follow in the footsteps of Hector Malot, author of "Sans Famille
A meeting place for artists
Take a break in a French jewel where time seems to have stood still long ago. This small town on the banks of the Seine has always been a source of creativity for artistic virtuosos. Soak up the atmosphere as you stroll through the picturesque streets of the village of La Bouille.
Its half-timbered houses bear witness to a medieval past that is still very much alive. They inspired a native of the town, Hector Malot, the French writer who wrote "Sans Famille".
But he was not the only one who came to find ideas in this village of 700 souls. Sisley and Gauguin put down their brushes for a few moments to admire the Seine and paint their most beautiful canvases.
Today, modest artists' galleries fill the centre of La Bouille. Each year, the Normandy Impressionist Festival also takes place here to honour the artistic movement and its techniques.
