Picture postcard old water mill property (wheel still working and providing electricity for the house) in lovely grounds. Warm welcome by Stephanie and the assorted dogs, cats and chickens.
Comfortable room (we were in Les Cocquilles - or Poppies in English) with views over the wallabies bouncing around in the grounds. Private bathroom across the corridor. Assorted other exotic animals in next field!
Excellent breakfasts on the patio, and I recommend that you take up the offer of having an evening meal with the hosts - good value and Stephanie is happy to converse in French or English.
Rooms have no keys, but the property is protected by electronic gates; you will be given the code, but I suggest that you do it in daylight the first time so that you can remember the sequence at night when you can't see the numbers!
A very relaxing 4 night stay. Bicycles are provided free of charge to tour around the local area, and the property is 5 mins walk from Monet's Garden. Plenty of other lovely villages and chateaus etc within easy touring reach.
One word of warning about Giverny; most of the hotels/restaurants are not open in the evening, or at least were not in August (Hotel Baudy being an honourable exception), and there are no shops - not even a boulangerie. Vernon is only just up the road though.
If you like traditional properties, friendly service, and particularly if you are animal lovers, this is the place for you.
