Very old and very interesting.
Aug 2018 • Couples
We caught an early morning train from Paris to the medieval town of Vernon, where after a trip to Claude Monet's home we decided to tour the 15th century Normandy village of Vernon with its lovely historic buildings before taking lunch and catching the late train back to Paris. The Village square is of particular interest with its Town hall, 11th century church of Notra Dame and the oldest timbered building in the village which is now used as a Tourist Information Office. In the past this building was an Inn and place of refuge for weary travelers. In this office you can get information on over 200 old houses and structures, scattered around the villages cobble-stoned narrow alleys. Most of these have historical plagues of information, and like most buildings in Europe they suffered much damage during WWII. If you drive to Vernon parking can be a problem.

TIP: It is possible to buy tickets to Claude Monet's house here.

Normand style architecture
Aug 2018 • Friends
This is an excellent example of Normand half timber construction. Too bad it does not have a thatched roof.

Medieval French House
Oct 2017 • Couples
This is what I identify with small French villages with homes looking like this, made of timber. It was built in the 1400's and is still standing and being used today! Vernon is a delightful town to walk through with lovely historic structures. Worthwhile to spend an afternoon or morning here.

Another architectural gem!
Sep 2016 • Friends
My husband and I were on tour with other seniors visiting Giverny, Les Andelys, and Vernon. Our river cruise docked here so we had a wonderful opportunity to spend an afternoon sightseeing the beautiful town of Vernon. The architecture is truly amazing. We took many. many photographs of the area with its ancient buildings and cobblestone walks. This truly is a must to see and experience its history.

Nice medieval house with wooden structure
Apr 2017 • Couples
A nice medieval house with an external typical wooden structure, close to the main square where also the Town Hall and the main Church are located. A very nice corner of Vernon, a tiny peaceful village, very close to Giverny, famous for Monet.

nice house in the old city. Typical house of the region, in a very good state. The old city is small but if you have twenty minutes, walk around, its nice.

Old house -walking tour
Jul 2016 • Couples
Go inside this house which is the tourist office and get a map for a walking tour of Vernon which takes you to other old houses and structures of Vernon. A pleasant way to spend and hour. Each stop has a history plague explaining the significance of the site. The area has a significant place in history during WW2.

Oldest Building in Vernon
Mar 2016 • Friends
Apart from being the oldest building in Vernon and also beautiful, this lovely building also houses the local Tourist Information Office. It is therefore great to see and go inside to make any necessary enquiries!

Marvellous half-timbered beauty in Vernon
Jul 2015 • Solo
Wooden houses always stood the test of time. Vernon has over 200 such houses along the narrow alleys which are mostly cobble-stoned. The town hall is located right next to the Notre Dame church. After parking the car in one of the roads (parking can be quite tricky if you are driving a moderately large sedan, in my case a Mercedes E350).

Interesting historic house
Dec 2014 • Couples
Vernon is a quaint small town with lots of shops and restaurants. The town is known for its many half- timber houses and this is an excellent example. It leans quite a bit, giving it an interesting appearance. It houses the local tourist information office. It is worth a visit and a photograph or two.
