Tied to the capital

Paris has heavily affected the development of Eure throughout its history. The department is fairly low lying and one-fifth is covered in forests. There are a number of rivers working their way through the Eure, all of which eventually create the Seine. Main industries in the area include the production of wool and fabric.

A turbulent history

Evroux, the departmental capital, is often thought of as a smaller Rouen. It reflects the town's elegance; while, at the same time, has a shared history of World War II damage. The ardent cathedral, for example, has had roof reconstruction numerous times throughout its history. However, the town has kept a great deal more of its ancient history than Rouen. You can still stroll along the old ramparts that once defended the town.

A suburb of Paris

The east of the department is where you'll find the Seine Valley. This area is more thought of as a Parisian suburb than a part of Normandy. If you look carefully, you'll be able to find villages with half-timbered housing and an authentic french rural atmosphere. It is in the Seine Valley that you can look around Monet's garden at Giverny.

A tale of two towns

The striking rock faces, that overlook your entrance into the Seine Valley, continue as far as the town of Les Andelys. The name is plural because, in actual fact, it encompasses two towns. Le Grand Andelys was founded by the Romans and is set further back from the Seine, while Le Petit Andelys is alongside the river - positioned so that it could receive supplies for the medieval castle. Richard the Lionheart had the castle built in one year to protect Normandy from his childhood friend, King Philippe Auguste. The castle is now in ruins, but the parts that do still stand are truly impressive and worth a visit.

How to get there

The nearest airports with direct flights from the UK are the Paris airports. Travelling by ferry is another option. The nearest ferry ports are Le Havre and Dieppe, or even Ouistreham (Caen) in Lower Normandy. The Channel Tunnel is another easy option. If you are travelling without your car then you can take the TGV service into Evreux.

Eure property prices

Eure's proximity to Paris means that prices here are considerably more expensive than outlying departments. The advantage of Eure is that you've got easy access to both the UK and the French capital. You are less likely to find renovation properties here than in the rest of Normandy.
