Yville-sur-seine Travel Guide



Yville-sur-Seine is a small, rural commune along the Seine River in French Normandy near the city of Rouen. The village is famous for its Château d’Yville, which an 18th century castle replete with magnificent gardens that you can wander through. Unfortunately, the castle is privately owned and the interior cannot be visited yet[1], although this will soon change.[2]

Outside of Yville-sur-Seine and beyond the Château d’Yville is the Seine Valley, which consists of orchards, thickets, farmsteads, and cottages. This region and the banks have long been shunned by the nobility and clergy, left for the Third Estate of peasants and craftsmen. However, there are still a few manor houses and abbeys. A few trails outside of Yville are worth traveling, exploring, and hiking. The Fruit Trail runs from Herteauville to Duclair while the Cottage Trail traverses from La Mailleraye to Saint-Samson de la Roques. These paths are surrounded by the Brotonne Forest, which gave the Regional Country Park its name when it was set up in 1974 to protect the area’s natural environment and heritage.[3]
