Close to Honfleur, in the heart of Normandy, the former Abbey Notre-Dame de Grestain was founded by Herluin de Conteville circa 1050. His wife, Arlette, mother of William the Conqueror, was buried with Herluin in the choir of the abbey church, which is now destroyed. Their son Robert, William the Conqueror's step brother, was also buried there. You will be able to see some remains including the abbot's house and the 13th century guest room, the prior's house converted into a farm building in the 19th century, the surrounding wall (12th - 16th century) whose northern part has been well preserved.
