“Charming”
Reviewed 6 April 2013 via mobile

We were warmly welcomed by Stephan with his big heart and wonderful enthusiasm. The rooms were cheerful and perfect for our family of 4. Stephan gave us lots of suggestions for dinner, Giverny and local attractions - all spot on. When we returned from dinner the courtyard was gently lighted with candles. A delight! Breakfast was lovely and Stephan really showed his care for us and the kids. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Les Jardins du Val is only a short drive to Monet's garden at Giverny, the reason for our visit, and we chose to stay here after reading the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor - we were not disappointed. The owners, Stéphane and Sylvie have created a beautiful and tranquil Chambres d'Hote set in its own large garden, which Stéphane himself has created over the last four years. The house is full of character, tastefully decorated and exclusively for guests as Stéphane and Sylvie live in an adjoining property. Vernon, the nearest town just a minute or two up the road, is worth exploring and has a number of good restaurants. Stéphane was extremely helpful providing information and advice on the area and even booking a restaurant for us on the evening of our arrival. The next morning Sylvie produced a traditional French breakfast with an extra treat of apple tart made using the property's own apples. Les Jardins du Val deserves the high ratings it has been given - we were sorry it was only one night and we would certainly go back. We chose the "la valoise" suite which was on the top floor of the house - there is a smaller double and a family suite on the first floor. The fact that the house was fully occupied in late October is perhaps testament to its high standard and welcoming hosts. There is ample secure parking within the grounds. Les Jardins du Val has its own website which is worth looking at - http://www.lesjardinsduval.fr/. The road, Chemin du Moulin, off the Vernon to Bonnières road, is for residents only and would be easy to miss but directions are clear from their website.

The proprietor, Monsieur Stephan, was a consummate host, warmly welcoming us despite our unexpectedly late arrival, setting us up with the perfect Normandy itinerary over a delicious breakfast the next morning, and treating us to a memorable tour of his gardens before our departure. His first career was as a gardener, as is evident from his beautifully landscaped and historic property. The accommodations were perfect for our family and I can only highly recommend the experience to others visiting Giverny and looking for a delightful French-country experience.

Room Tip: It can be a little tricky to find at night - best to arrive during daylight hours.

Our stay as Les Jardins du Val was one of those magical times that the best memories are made of. The place is absolutely gorgeous - the charming owner Stephane has planted a thousand trees and five thousand shrubs and the gardens are so special. The land has been in his family for over two hundred years and staying there felt like an authentic experience of rural France - Les Jardins du Val is tucked away in the country, yet is only minutes to Monet's garden at Giverny, and well under an hour's drive from Paris. Stephane and Sylvie couldn't do enough for us - including well thought out sightseeing advice, suggestions for nearby restaurants, - excellent! - and places to see on our way north when we left. This place is a complete gem and offers an experience you couldn't find elsewhere - we can't wait to return.
