Are you leaving Paris to go to Caen? On the Normandie motorway (A13), discover the Douains Nord area. Take a break! It is located between the Villeneuse-en-Chevrie Nord and Beauchêne Nord areas, at km 60, just before the exit for Vernon.

Not far from there, visit the Esplanade Jean-Claude Asphe on the banks of the Seine. It is a very well laid out place, suitable for beautiful walks on the left bank. Take a diversion if you have time and enjoy Mother Nature.
