Famous with its Cathedral and half-timbered houses, Rouen was the first town I lived since I moved to France. It was in December 2018, I instantly found the charm of this town and very heartwarming, no matter the season is. As someone who is really passionate about the maison de colombage (half-timbered houses), to be lived in Rouen was a dream come true. Just around 1.5 hours train from Paris, you will arrive in Rouen, the capital of Normandy and Seine-Maritime. Even I am living in Dieppe now, I still visit Rouen a couple of times and still feel the same about this town.
