Rouen, France also called Roman Town, is a traditional French city that has retained all its history as it has grown. The city offers many historical sites as well as magnificent cathedrals and cafés and shopping for everyone’s taste. The old city center has many half-timbered houses that date back centuries.
The quaint 14-century old seaside village of Honfleur is about an hour from Caudebec-En-Caux in the Haute-Normandy region for France. When you travel through the small villages, you see many thatched roof cottages. These homes have the thatched roofs many with iris growing along the roof line. There are only three craftsmen in the region that build and maintain these roofs. They do not teach this craftsmanship in school, so the men need to have an apprentice to keep up with the trade.
