Cosy House close to historical city center in ROUEN, Normandy : culture and history !

Dear Intervac friends ,
We live in ROUEN, Normandy, only 150 km North West from Paris (70 mn by train , 90 mn by car ) and East from DDay beaches ( 1h drive) .
Normandy is the area where famous french writers  lived and famous painters  such as Monet and others painted beautiful landscapes in Giverny , Etretat , Le Havre ...
So what about a swap in Normandy , so many things to do, so many beautiful landscapes to discover, either in summer or in other season ?
Welcome in a comfortable and big city house !
Our semi detached house ( typical 19 cty house ,built in1898 ) is located in a quiet area  very near  the historical town center .You can hear birds singing and  bells  ringing as if you were in a village ! Rouen  was named "100 church towers town" by V.Hugo .
The house is about 240sqm with 3 floors .
Kitchen and  dining-living room have   direct access to the south terrace , down to the typical town -garden  , where children can play badmington or ping pong and parents  enjoy bbq  or resting in the shadow of the  old big birch tree...
On second floor, you'll find  master's bedroom , girl's room (each with washbasin room), friends' room  with a shower room ,and a large  family bathroom. 
On the third floor are   boys' bedrooms, one with a modern bathroom ,the other with a washbasin room , and a TV  room .
