Where to Stay in Giverny

If you’re traveling from Paris to Giverny to see Monet’s House, chances are you’re contemplating a day trip versus an overnight stay.

Giverny is a tiny French village, where the highlight and main attraction is Monet’s Garden. Because of this, almost all the tourists beeline straight to the Foundation Museum, with hoards of visitors at every hour.

If you want the freedom to explore Monet’s Garden at leisure and soak in the peaceful flower filled gardens without the crowds, you’ll have to stay in town overnight.

We’ve rounded up some of the quaint properties within walking distance of Giverny, so that you can wake up early and avoid the tour groups!

Best Hotels in Giverny

 

1. Jardin des Plumes

 

Jardin des Plumes

If you want a gorgeous hotel with character, that’s right next to Monet’s House and Gardens, this hotel is it!

Jardin des Plumes is an upscale bed and breakfast with a main house, pretty gardens and a famous on site restaurant. Rooms are comfortable, chic yet have character (think bathtubs instead of free standing showers). 

The highlight of staying here is the food! Breakfast is worth the upgrade, with farm fresh eggs and lots of choice, while the dinner has 1 Michelin star!

2. La Dime de Giverny

 

La Dime de Giverny

La Dime is a beautifully restored French country house. The interiors are refreshingly modern, yet still maintain lots of Norman character.

All the rooms are unique and pretty large, with an old world feel and very comfortable beds. The breakfast is great, the garden is soothing and overall, La Dime offers a one-of-a-kind place to stay!

There are only 5 rooms, so book ahead to reserve a spot.

3. Les Jardins du Val

 

Les Jardins du Val

The host of this property actually worked at Monet’s Garden, so if you want insider knowledge of not only the Foundation but also the surrounding countryside, Les Jardins du Val is perfect! 

Rooms are small, but clean and comfortable – ask for one overlooking the beautiful garden. For dinner, there are 2 great restaurants within walking distance, one French and one North African. 

We recommend this hotel for travelers who want to soak in not just Giverny but also the surrounding sights. The property is a 15 minute drive from Monet’s Garden and a short 10 minute drive from the French villages of Vernon and La Roche Guyon. Lots of parking on site.

4. La Pluie des Roses

 

La Pluie des Roses

This classic B&B was recently bought and renovated by new owners.

Tucked away between the valley and nestled among lots of trees and roses, the Norman home is beautifully decorated with cozy antiques. It’s all very cozy, and the owners go out of their way to make your stay comfortable.

You can walk to Foundation Monet in the morning after indulging in a hearty breakfast. La Pluie offers fresh eggs, and a variety of breads, meats and yogurts. It’s almost too pretty to leave!

Le Coin des Artistes

For quiet and spotlessly clean accommodation, stay at Le Coin.

The hotel has a great location just 5 minutes from Monet’s Garden with ample parking in front of the property. Out back there is a classic French garden, lots of pretty wildflowers in bloom and some tables to relax. Free wifi included as well!

Visiting Normandy – Travel Checklist

We took a red eye to Paris from JFK, then sailed on the Seine to Rouen on a river cruise. You can check for flight deals here and set an alert for your dates.

It’s also easy to take the train from Paris to cities throughout Normandy. Check my post here for more logistical information on taking the train in France and how not to buy tickets.

In Normandy, there’s so much to see over a large area that I’d recommend basing yourself in a city for a couple nights to take day trips, then moving to another city. For the D Day beaches, Bayeux and Caen are both popular bases. Check here for deals on Normandy hotels.

Lastly, be sure to visit Paris with travel insurance. Whether you get injured and need to be hospitalized, your phone gets stolen, or a flight delay leaves you with nothing but the clothes on your back, travel insurance will help when you need it most.

During our recent trip, riots in Paris shut down the city center and forced a closure of all the main sights (the Louvre, Versailles, etc). Get a quote for your trip here.
