My wife and I unfortunately experienced Giverney during unseasonal cold, wet, miserable weather in mid May. However, our hosts at Les Arceaux, Michel and Francine, made our stay of a week so enjoyable that we would love to be able to return when the sun is actually shining.
This B & B is certainly the best we have stayed at in our travels. It is modern and well laid out, in a delightful setting with a great outlook. The facilities are very comfortable, and as for the breakfast, just splendid.
Both Michel and Francine speak English far better than I speak French so communication was not a problem and they were always most helpful and friendly.
We enjoyed our stay so much that we recommended Les Arceaux to friends that were going to Giverny but unfortunately they were only able to stay for one night. However, like us, they thoroughly appreciated the accommodation and the hospitality.
