This is a very small charming village with a church in the center of the village. There really is not a whole lot to do here. Our only reason for being here was to take our trek up to Chateau Gaillard.

If you are seeking a small, quaint, reasonably priced Hotel, about 60 miles from Paris and 20 miles from Giverny, Chaine D'Or is your place. Sitting right upon the banks of the Seine in the quiet, lovely town of Andelys.
