3-star hotel Les Andelys

Charming hotel on the banks of the Seine in Normandy



A stay at this 3-star hotel means the guarantee of a complete change of scenery and a journey back in time.

The residence, built in 1751, used to house the offices of the toll for the "droits de travers". This toll, symbolised by a chain, demarcated the zone of passage and payment. The revenue generated was such that the chain was nicknamed "la Chaîne d’Or" (the gold chain). In turn a café, a hotel, a restaurant, and even awarded one star in the Michelin guide, since 2008, the establishment has been managed by Stéphanie and Olivier BICOT, who have devoted themselves with great passion to recounting the history of this Norman building, Les Andelys and its surroundings, major centres with a rich cultural heritage.

At La Chaîne d’Or, nothing is written in stone. The entire team is devoted to preparing an exceptional stay for you. The service is extremely personal and meets all your needs. Just tell us what you need before or during your stay so that the team can assist you.
Your sleeping arrangements, your meals at the restaurant, a special occasion to be celebrated, a programme of visits in Normandy, and more. All your requests allow us to offer our advice to help you and assist you with your itinerary and, above all, book your tickets (Priority Tickets for Giverny etc.). Do not hesitate to contact us.

Each room in the hotel is decorated in a personalised and thematic style according to the universes of the historical figures who have made a mark on Les Andelys or stayed there over the years.

During thematic evenings (for groups of 30 people minimum), discover the dining habits and customs in Roman, Medieval or Renaissance period, thanks to the stories recounted by Olivier BICOT, accompanied by meals prepared with dishes from the olden days.

La Chaîne d'Or offers you a journey back in time, filled with refinement and comfort, in the footsteps of the secrets and beauties of the thrilling and secretive Normandy Seine.
