DAY 1 IN VERNON
On your first day, take the time to appreciate the town of Vernon. Take a stroll around or follow the tourist circuit from Place Barette (town hall, collegiate church) to the legendary Vieux Moulin (Old Mill), via the Archives Tower. Fall under the charm of the authentic medieval streets and timber-frame houses.
On the way, stop off at the town’s museum, which showcases the Impressionists. Don’t miss its animal art gallery and drawing studio.
Château de Bizy
After lunch, head to Château de Bizy. Its elegant style will probably remind you of the Palace of Versailles, which inspired it. You will also fall in love with its stables and vast park, its fountains and its century-old trees.
DAY 2 IN GIVERNY
From Vernon, head to Giverny by bike via ‘La Seine à vélo’ and the greenway.
Claude Monet’s house
At 84 Rue Claude Monet, you will find this painter’s house. As you enter the gardens, which inspired much of his work, you will be captivated by the fragrances, colours and light.
Museum of Impressionisms
In the afternoon, discover the unique exhibition at the Giverny Museum of Impressionisms. This resolutely modern museum shows you the power and diversity of Impressionism.
DAY 3 IN L'EURE VALLEY OR L'EPTE VALLEY
The great outdoors
After getting your breath back, delve into the world of railways and trains of yesteryear, in Pacy-sur-Eure. Climb aboard to appreciate the unique panoramas over the valley, shaped by the winding flow of the River Eure, or simply enjoy a meal. A guaranteed vintage atmosphere!
DAY 4 IN LES ANDELYS
Walk down to ‘Petit-Andely’ and stroll through the district (and consider partaking in the virtual walking tour). You will be won over by the beauty of the banks of the River Seine, art galleries, shops and medieval timber-frame houses.
After a busy day filled with activities and tours, you can relax in one of our hotels, bed and breakfasts, holiday cottages or campsites.
