Vernon The Essential
Interesting
Beautiful shady avenues, old half-timbered residences, near the forest, make Vernon an ideal starting point for those who wish to discover the Seine valley up to Rouen, or explore this region which the impressionists liked so much. Who would imagine that this charmingly quiet town where Saint Louis, a lover of watercress, enjoyed tasting his favourite dish, is the launching base of the Ariane rocket ? (The engines have been built here for thirty years).
