Our room was big enough, but there was no fan, no air conditioning and when we opened the windows the room was filled with bugs. I needed an extra towel to wash and roll dry my medical compression hose and had to plead for it. The next day the room was not cleaned. There were five people staying at this... More

The location in the centre of Giverny was great with access to all the attractions and restaurants. As pointed out by another reviewer, Madam Marie-Claire does not speak a lot of English but you can get by. We had two rooms that overlooked the garden and there was parking for the car out the back. Rooms were spacious, clean, upstairs... More

We recently stayed at this B&B in Giverny. Unfortunately our experience was different from the more recent positive ones reviewed on this site. The location and facilities were pretty nice. The Monet house and gardens are just a short walk away. However, we felt that the hostess's heart really isn't into serving her guests. Upon our arrival, she greeted us... More

We used this B&B in the centre of Giverny to visit Monet's Garden and were not disappointed. Marie-Claire was a charming hostess and made our stay very pleasant. She spoke little English but you still get by in different ways. We had the Blue room of 3 available and our french windows overlooked the gardens on a sunny day. Bed,... More

With its great location and friendly hosts, we had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. The room was clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. The double bed was very comfortable, and the two-seater that could be an extra bed was also fairly nice, although a little narrow and slightly lumpy. There was a living room that had the seat/bed, a... More

This is the perfect spot to catch your breath, if you have been traveling around and need a break.It's good to spend the night in Giverny, because you can then get a head start on the crowds that appear at Monet's House and Gardens. This B&B is truly a hidden gem right in the heart of Giverny. Marie-Claire and Michel... More

We enjoyed the Boschers who own and run the B&B very much. This home has come down through 5 generations of Boschers, and two generations ago the grandfather was a blacksmith for the village. The B&B is centrally located so the walk to Monet's gardens is 5 to 10 minutes away and the Baudy Hotel, also quite historical, is a... More

Marie-Claire and Michel Boscher are the older French couple who live in the French countryside in the movie about an older French couple who live in the countryside. As in, the setting and the inn and the proprietors are perfectly congruent with your most hopeful and romantic notions of what it would be like to spend a few days on... More

Having lived in Paris for 40 years we had been many times to Giverny but only on day-trips. We decided to treat ourselves to a tranquil weekend in this beautiful area. We checked out the Giverny website but it was difficult to make up our minds. Since this was a last minute reservation most of the B&Bs were booked out.... More

A wonderful place to stay in Giverny, Our room was large. clean, comfortable with nice decor. Bathroom was very small, but updated and adequate. Our hosts, Michal and Marie made us feel very welcome and served a wonderful continental style breakfast. The price of 75 Euros with breakfast makes this B&B an outstanding value.
