Our communication with Sandrin was very easy, VERY usefull and very warm.
Unfortunately we had only one night to spend there, during our Normandy tour.
We were two couples travelling, and we got the two upstair rooms, one next to the other. Very convenient - as we could pull a curtain to 'cut' the hall in two, to help keep our privacy as we walked in/out of our private spacious bathroom. The bed was comfortable, nice linen - very inviting.
The house preserves a 19th century atmosphere, and it is obvious Sandrin paid a lot of attention to details. Parking was on the street - apparently a standard in the little village of Giverny - even though the road is narrow, and bi-directional .-)
The breakfast was good - fresh orange juice (delicious), tea/coffee, jem, cereal, baguet & croissants, butter and cheese for spreading. Sandrin is attentif to your needs, and quickly comes to serve you...
All in all - a VERY pleasant place to stay. Thank you, Sandrin - we might be back for a longer tour...

- At the gates of Normandy,75 kms from Paris, Giverny the heart of Impressionism offers beautiful landscapes and the charm of the french countryside. Definitely "givernoise", this house, once known as 'the house at the beginning of the village', then the "gatekeeper's house", "the milkman's house" and finally the 'mayor's house', is now a one of its kind bed and breakfast.Les Jardins d'Helene are open all year long, and a one hour drive will take you to Honfleur, Deauville (sea side) or Versailles, and you'll find castles, gardens, parks in the neighborhoods.Bicycles are at you disposal for a short ride or more if you prefer the Greenway. ... more less
