Nowadays beautiful villas, in the Norman seaside style, as well as brick mansions from the 19th century stand along the Avenue de la République, the main street joining Grand Andely and Petit Andely, on the site of an old fish pond between the two parts of the town.

Le Grand Andely is on the Gambon river and The Grand Rand Canal which flow into the Seine river and on the Paix and the Fontainette brooks which flow into the Grand-Rang Canal. You can have a nice walk along these rivers out of the way of the busy town.

Read more about our heritage in « Along the rivers and streets in Le Grand Andely », a free brochure available at the Town tourist Office.

Despite the destructions of the Second World War Le Grand Andely has kept its treasures in a design from the Fifties: the modern housing shows a cohesive unity full of charm.

Concrete units and local brick offer a colourful contrast which stimulates the architecture of a town that is definitely looking into the future.
