I took my mom to giverny in August to visit monet's gardens after 3 days in paris. After some research I found les arceau. Not on the mainstream sights at the time this place was a hidden gem of a B and B unlike any I have stayed in before. A very accommodating Michel and Francine hosted us in their home which included. Our own living area, and 2 bathrooms. Far more private than a regular B and B and this was much appreciated. Michel was kind enough to pick us up from the train station, as well as drop us very early a few days later. The provided breakfast was lovely and the couple really couldn't do enough for us. If your staying in giverny for any reason I could not recommend les arceaux enough it is simply the best.
