Surrounded by popular cities, Evreux is a diamond in the rough for those interested in historical and architectural heritage. In this regard, the city is best known for its two most important monuments: Evreux Cathedral and the bishop’s palace.

Built in the 10th century, the cathedral is devoted to Notre Dame at Evreux. Located in the centre of town, its impressive architecture and imposing size are hard to miss. Throughout history, Evreux has faced heavy damage, particularly during the Second World War, but the cathedral is one of several monuments that have endured.

Adjoined to the south side of the cathedral is the bishop’s palace. Today, this space is home to a museum and art gallery, Musée d'Évreux, Musée d'Art, Histoire et Archéologie, which is home to beautiful paintings, historical artefacts and modern art.

This makes Evreux particularly suitable as a starting point for your road trip

After taking in the sights in Evreux, you can depart from the city on a multi-city motorhome holiday to discover the Normandy region and beyond.

For fans of motorsports, a two-and-a-half hour drive southwest of Evreux will lead you to Le Mans, the city best known for the oldest active endurance sports car race in the world, 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Camper van rental: Useful information for your trip to Evreux

The minimum age requirement for renting a motorhome in France is 21, though some rental companies may only rent to those 25 and over. If you’re under 25, you may be subject to additional daily fees for insurance purposes.

Normandy doesn’t have an international airport but renting a motorhome here may be more ideal than doing so in one of the larger surrounding cities where the demand for camper van rentals is much higher.
