At the gates of Normandy,75 kms from Paris, Giverny the heart of Impressionism offers beautiful landscapes and the charm of the french countryside. Definitely “givernoise”, this house, once known as ‘the house at the beginning of the village’, then the “gatekeeper’s house”, “the milkman’s house” and finally the ‘mayor’s house’, is now a one of its kind bed and breakfast.

Les Jardins d'Helene are open all year long, and a one hour drive will take you to Honfleur, Deauville (sea side) or Versailles, and you’ll find castles, gardens, parks in the neighborhoods.Bicycles are at you disposal for a short ride or more if you prefer the Greenway.

I can help you to organize your transfers from the airport to Giverny, do not hesitate to ask me.

Monet's house is open until november 1rst, the museum of the Impressionism too with the exhibition : Manguin the joy of colour.

Upon request I can prepare a picnic basket to take with you on your excursions and to discover Giverny and its neighborhood bicycles are at you disposal.

All year long
