Impressionism Museum | Giverny

The Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny is dedicated to Impressionism in an exceptional setting combining contemporary architecture and gardens, 15 minutes from the gîte.

Claude Monet’s house and gardens

The House of Giverny was used by Claude Monet from 1883 to 1926, that is forty-three years. Passionate about gardening as much as colors, he designed his flower garden and his water garden as real works. Visitors, as you walk, you will feel the atmosphere that reigned in the master of Impressionism and marvel at the flower arrangements and the water lilies which were his most fruitful sources of inspiration.

Chateau La Roche Guyon

At the heart of one of the best preserved sites in Île-de-France, between Vétheuil and Giverny, the Château de La Roche-Guyon raises its imposing silhouette from the banks of the Seine to the top of the hill. Leaned against the chalk cliff since the Middle Ages, this ancient fortress has been transformed over the centuries, elegantly confronting architectural styles.

The Domain of Villarceaux

Multiple as its perspectives, the domain of Villarceaux offers the stroller, stage after stage, a fabulous journey in history and in time. 50 minutes from the Maison Saint-Nicolas and located at the bottom of a valley in the French Vexin, the Villarceaux estate can be summed up as a fortified habitat which had all the characteristics of the aristocratic stronghold of the old regime.

Castle of Bizy

The different buildings that make up the Château de Bizy, 20 minutes from the gîte, were built at different times. Since the beginning of the work in 1740, the successive owners have added, over time, their stone to the building. The Duke of Belle-Isle, the Duke of Penthièvre or even Louis-Philippe, the last king of the French, participated in the creation and embellishment of the Château de Bizy.
