I have never been so comfortable - in my own home or a family member's home - as I was in Ariane and Alain's beautiful home. Writing in my journal while seated at a breakfast table full of croissants, fruit, cheeses, coffee, juice and yogurt while a perfectly formed, coral-colored rose greeted me on the other side of lace-covered curtains...I could simply dissolve into this place and never resurface!
For one like me who enjoys discovery by foot, the location is perfect. Situated halfway along the footpath between Vernon and Giverny, either direction will deliver important and enjoyable cultural, aesthetic and historically significant encounters. Ariane and Alain were generous with their knowledge and affection for the region, and recommended an inconspicuous restaurant in Vernon where I ate divinely! The history of their home and their loving attention to its restoration is evident in the hospitality and respect that they show to travelers who are likewise attracted to the area. I cannot say enough about my wonderful experience, and I hope to return again and again.
