This wonderful B&B is off the beaten track. We wondered if we were lost but after winding through fields and woods we arrived in this gracious oasis. Apparently the building is relatively new but constructed from old materials. So it has character and ambience and good design AND the beds are comfy and the plumbing works well. Hosts were delightful.... More

Along with another couple, we stayed at La Reserve on the first day of our visit in Normandy. We stayed at La Reseve because we were visiting Monet's House and Gardens. We arrived late morning after overnight flight. Valerie was waiting to welcome us and still had breakfast waiting. Wonderful croissants and coffee. We fell in love with her place... More

Away from the tourist honeypot of Giverny yet close enough to go to Monet's Gardens towards the end of the day and to go back again to the village for dinner, La Reserve is a stunning b&b. Valerie is a wonderful host, with incredible attention to detail - from the welcoming cider al fresco to the perfect fruit kebab resting... More

A charming and impressive place. When we arrived at La Reserve we were tired for driving and Valerie and François were waiting for us with a homemade cider and some croissants in the garden at the sunset (amazing!!). Flaubert the big dog was presented for us. It is a really kindly and friendly dog, my little daughter (2 years) have... More

The house is set in large grounds above the village of Giverny. Ideal for visiting Monet's Garden whilst avoiding the crowds. The rooms are large and airy and the decor 'shabby chic' with lots of interesting art work. The breakfasts are great and if you like donkeys.....

We came to Giverny from CDG to get adjusted to "jet lag". Our choice was La Reserve. It was a exactly what we needed. Valerie and her family have established a beautiful chateau on a small farm. The rooms were decorated with pictures and furniture that gave us the feeling we were staying in a relative's home. The breakfast was... More

I rated everything excellent but a very good on location because it was a bit tricky to find! But very worth it! The blue room was ours and if country French is what you wish ... It is the real deal right down to its charming breakfast table! Enjoy!

My mother and I stayed at this truly grand chateau in May 2014 for 2 nights. Upon approach, you see just how majestic the chateau is and are immediately greeted by Flaubert. Francois was so proud of his homemade apple cider made from the apples on the property and it was delicious! The Blue room was gorgeous and large and... More

After enjoying Monet's gardens (quite impressive) and house (much less so) in the late afternoon sunshine without crowds (good time to visit?), we drove five minutes up the hill out of the village and followed the signs to La Reserve. Our family of five (kids 14,12 and 9) was warmly greeted by Flaubert the huge, friendly dog and Francois, who... More

All the other positive reviews are absolutely right - this is a beautiful secluded spot offering genuine peace and quiet in a beautiful building that's been decorated with real thought and care. Breakfast was absolutely superb, with a really great choice of delicious and largely local produce. The hosts are incredibly friendly and accommodating, with quite the most enormous dog... More
