Hi everyone! You may have seen on Instagram that we recently spent the weekend in Normandy for a short break. It was a delightful trip even if the weather was pretty cold for the season. But the sun was shining and it was so good to be on the road again! Our first stop was in a beautiful village called Gerberoy, which wasn’t technically in Normandy, but in Picardy. It was actually in our way to Rouen where we had to spend the night (but that will be our step 2 in this trip).
I had read that it was one of the “prettiest villages in France” and that it was really worth a visit. I can say we weren’t disappointed. It was indeed one of the more whimsical and charming French villages I had ever seen. I really encourage you to plan a trip there if you’re coming to France! It’s just one and a half hour away from Paris by car and the area is full of great things to see.
I found back an article from “French Country Style” magazine that featured the village. I share it with you as an “amuse-bouche” (appetizer) if you’re interested (just click on the cover to get the full article).
I haven’t seen these movies but after having visited the village I thought it might be fun to look at the scenes that were shot in there. It was indeed the perfect place to shoot an historical movie like “Madame Bovary”.
Here are a few pics of our tour in the village. I hope you’ll enjoy these little postcards from Gerberoy! See you soon for the second step of our trip: Rouen!
A bientôt pour la suite de notre voyage !
