La Maison Bleue
Ranked #11 of 14 Giverny B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 25, 2010

The owner Mme Etinault made us feel very welcome and allowed us to come and go as we pleased without us disturbing her or her us.
This is a perfect B&B if you want something more authentic than the square room of an Etap. 15-20mins stroll will take you to Monet's gardens and round the picturesque village of Giverny.
The room was light, airy, clean and the bed very comfortable.

The room(s) comprise most of the top floor of an old house in the centre of Giverny, a fair sized and equipped bedroom accompanied by a large bathroom. As in many old houses, the floors slope a bit and the feeling is a little rustic though the rooms are furnished in a modern fashion and were spotless.

There is ample car parking at the house behind closed gates at night, for added security.

Though the stairs are narrow and the room unsuited to the very elderly or those that have difficulty with stairs, the rooms and the warm welcome from Mme Etinault made the two flights worthwhile. Mme Etinault gave us a simple breakfast of croissant, bread, juice and tea, coffee or chocolate and we had access to come and go as we pleased over our three night stay.

It is a 20 minute walk to Monet's garden and on busy days it is worthwhile taking advantage of that to be at the front of the queue when the gardens open at 9-30am. There are only souvenir shops in the village but there are a few places to eat during the day - fewer in the evening. However, nearby Vernon has more facilities and more brasseries and restaurants though once again some of those do not serve food in the evening and on Sunday, service in the evening is very limited.

We got by with limited french but Mme Etinault has only a few words of English though enough, I'm sure, to make herself understood.

We had a very pleasant stay and would readily recommend this to others wishing to visit the area.
