About Giverny

Once the home of Impressionist painter Claude Monet, idyllic Giverny is a hugely popular destination for artists and art-lovers alike. Expect colourful stucco houses bedecked with flowers, charming small museums and galleries, and of course the famous Monet Foundation itself. Accommodation options range from little guest houses to chic hotels with heaps of facilities, perfect for couples or families. Many of the best places to stay in Gvierny are within 15 minutes of Monet’s well-preserved house and gardens — some of our favourites are just a short walk away.

The area’s top attraction is undoubtedly the Fondation Claude Monet. Home to the artist for more than 40 years, the gorgeous Clos Normand and magical Water Garden are now open to visitors. Guided tours come especially recommended, and you’ll find the gardens bursting with cherry trees, roses, tulips and poppies during the spring and early summer. Fans of Monet will recognise iconic views from his paintings!

Follow the old railroad path to nearby Vernon to see the impressive Collegiale Notre Dame, a Gothic masterpiece, or to admire the manicured gardens of the Château de Bizy. Although many of the area’s principal sights are closed between November and Easter, this is a lovely time to visit if you’re eager to walk or cycle through fields of wildflowers in relative tranquility. The best places to stay in Giverny are superb throughout the year. Foodies will event spot two Michelin-starred gems on our list.

  • Evergreen Guest House offers two one-bedroom cottages with brick walls, beamed ceilings and roaring fireplaces set in pretty gardens 15 minutes from Giverny. The hosts provide generous breakfasts. A relaxing rural retreat, with lots of privacy.

TRAVEL INFORMATION

  • Fly to Beauvais-Tillé Airport, just over an hour away, or to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, before catching the train or bus to Giverny. Alternatively, take the train from London St-Pancras.
  • Normandy is brilliant for a road trip! Contact our online partner Rentalcars if you would like to hire a car.
  • Travel during the spring or summer for the best weather, with temperatures peaking at around 23°C in July and August — although this is the busiest time of year. Monet's garden is at its most beautiful in May and June. For a quieter trip, consider visiting in April or September.
