Bed & Breakfast Manoir de Notre-Dame
Ranked #2 of 3 Port-Villez B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 6, 2014

We booked a room here just a couple of days before arriving, and we were really pleased with our decision!

This is a gorgeous French manor, located in the quietest of areas on a hill, just about 15 minutes from Giverny. When we arrived we were greeted at the car by our wonderful hostess Helene, who runs the manor with her husband and family.

The house is absolutely beautiful inside and out. Very French, with large rooms and wonderful attention to detail. We stayed in the Constance room, which even had a little balcony. The bathroom was spacious and outfitted with everything we could need.

Helene is such an attentive hostess. She offered us great suggestions for dinner, she even drew me a map, gave me a local guide to the area, and is really knowledgable about everything around the area. She is very warm and sweet, and we had a few lovely conversations. By the time we left I felt like we were friends.

Breakfast, served in the gorgeous dining room, was a beautiful display of fresh fruits, homemade breads and cake, yogurt, cereal, juice, eggs, basically anything you could want. It was all delicious. Helene's homemade chocolate orange cake is unbelievable!

We only stayed for one night, but it was just amazing. It is a quiet and peaceful, at an extremely reasonable rate of 100 Euro for everything. If you're looking for a quintessential French B&B in a quiet spot with a warm and homey feel, this is definitely the place.

If we are ever back in this part of France we will absolutely be back, hopefully for more than one night!

Stunning manoir for sure. We got our booking mixed up and arrived a day early. The Manoir was fully booked, unfortunately. But the lady owner made calls for us and even took us to the near by hotel.
For the breakfast, they bought the pastries on the same morning. Fresh, nice and still warm.
We stayed in the Constance Room, which had a good view of the garden - beautiful.
Easy access to Giverny. And Vernon has many good top class eating place. Don't miss the farmer market.

Room Tip: This is a very quiet location. You need a car to get there. The room that we stayed was excellence...

A wonderful stay in a perfect B&B which just oozes friendliness and helpfulness. Our hostess, Helene, was a fount of all local knowledge and was only too keen to give us extremely useful tips on the locality. The breakfast was superb indeed! All in all, a fantastic stay!

Room Tip: 'Constance' is a lovely room in this hotel.

Five stars!! My daughter and I stayed here for two nights and it was just what we needed after the hustle and bustle of a week in Paris. Our hostess Helene was so warm and welcoming; she walked out to the driveway to greet us and saw us off as we left. She gave us great information on sites in the area to see. She went out of her way to help us; giving us directions to different sites and mailing our postcards for us. At breakfast she chatted with us and told us stories about her grandparents living in Normandy during WWII. By the time we left we were hugging like old friends.

The house itself is beautiful, from the 19th century. The rooms are big and decorated in a lovely French country style. The location is great as well, perfect for seeing Giverny and Monet's garden. I have travelled a lot and stayed at many b&bs, hotels, etc. but have never felt compelled to write a review until now. Thanks Helene!

The Manoir de Notre Dame de la Mer s the perfect spot to stay when visiting Monet's garden in Giverny. Rather than dring out and back from Paris for the day you can stay over at this very authentic manor house B & B about 10 minutes from Giverny.

The room was brilliant - spacious, beautifully decorated with timber floors and ensuite.

We went out for dinner to a restaurant the owners, Helene and Laurant, recommended and it too was perfect.

As an artist I wanted to have enough time to enjoy Monet's garden so staying overnight at Manoir de Notre Dame de la Mer allowed us to explore Giverny during the afternoon, get a good nights sleep, enjoy a hearty homecooked breakfast then spend a leisurely few hours at Monet's garden before driving back to Paris

I thoroughly recommend this B & B and will definitely stay there again. AW (Tony) Scott

We only stayed for one night on the way to another B&B. However when we arrived I was sad that we couldnt stay longer. The property is beautiful, the rooms very well decorated and comfortable.The gardens are lovely with chairs to relax in and there is a wonderful sitting room for you to relax in any maybe have evening drinks or read a book. Helene and her husband could not have been more friendly and helpful towards us. As we rode motorbikes and didnt want to ride in the dark to the local town of Vernon she insisted on running us there in her car, and even gave us a mobile phone to ring her when we were ready to be picked up. I would very highly recommend Manoir Notre-Dame and will definately be staying there again on our next trip to France, but for a few more nights so we can really enjoy the surroundings.

This B and B was excellent , in a quiet location, yet close to places such as Giverny and Monet's garden. A warm welcome with tea and cakes, wonderful breakfast with plenty of choice. Room very comfortable. Helene could also print off tickets for us for Monet's garden, paid for easily by credit card, which avoided a long queue to get in.If you want somewhere in that area don't hesitate, you won't be disappointed!!
