Why Emmanuelle Riviere chose Giverny
The Chalet du Moulin is our family property for the last 3 generations. We still come and stay regularly and the house bears the original decoration. This country house can host 2-3 families for their gathering half way between Paris and Rouen.

Gorgeous old family home makes you feel right at home
My small family stayed in this gorgeous old home in June 2016. We were traveling around the French countryside with my mother in law who has limited mobility. I chose this place simply because it was located just steps from Monet's Garden and was the only local place I could find with a ground floor bathroom and bedroom. We certainly lucked out! The place is huge, comfortably decorated and equipped to house, seat, and feed MANY people. It was terrific to have the place to ourselves but I would really like to bring my extended family back for a longer stay and more exploring of the region. The grounds are very inviting and the setting is beautiful. The owner was wonderfully accommodating and very pleasant. We will stay longer next time.
House with character upper Normandy
We spent a week in this wonderful house May 1 to May 8 ,2016. We are a group of art students from Finland who wanted to capture the beauty of Monet`s Garden on paper. It could not have been more perfect, the house was beyond description, well equipped in every way, the surrounding garden where we could sit and paint or draw was so beautiful and inspirirational. Our wonderful host helped us to get acsess too Monet`Garden after opening hours which meant that we could scetch in the " Garden " and work on our art " at home " We enjoyed every minute of our stay, we had nice dinners in the lovely diningroom in the evenings exchanging exprinces of our days.
We are so thankful to our host Emmannuelle as well as her lovely nighbour Celine and her family who helped us settleling in.
P.s Monet` Garden was practically our next dooor nighbour.

So glad to find this amazing gem on outskirts of Giverny. It totally met the needs of our extended family who travelled to Giverny for a relatives wedding. This is a large peaceful property and grounds with oodles of French period character. Everything was exceptionally clean and quirky. You do not need to be afraid of forgetting something as it is equipped for every eventuality. We managed to decorate a 4 tier wedding cake on site keeping it cool out of the 27C heat outside.
We had an 18 month old who was also in his element playing with the toys from the children's den and running around the extensive peaceful well kept garden. So many outside areas to sit and you follow the sun all day or stay in the shade- your choice.
If you are unsure whether to book this property just do it. You will have no regrets as long as you are not looking for modern minimalistic accommodation. We feel honoured at having been given the opportunity to enjoy this period home. Fantastic for a big family gathering. Love to return maybe for an anniversary in the future.
Charming and comfortable
All 8 of us loved this charming house. The large sun room made a great rainy day studio for us artists and the house itself made a great subject. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen and bathrooms well equipped. The location couldn't be better, on the edge of Giverny but just off the path of the hoards of tourists. From here we visited and painted Etretat, Auver sur Oise and of course Monet's garden.I hope to use it again.
Thank you very much Wade for this lovely feedback. We would have loved to see your paintings that Celine qualified of amazing. If you took any pictures of yourselves painting on the property, would you kindly send them to me?
I hope you had a safe trip back home.
Looking forward to hosting you and your next Impressionism trip.
Nous avons passé un très bon we, la maison est parfaite, très bien équipée et très agréable. Tout était propre et du linge à disposition. Très bien accueillie.
Nous gardons cette adresse, proche de Paris et très confortable. Merci
Nous avons passé un excellent week-end dans cette propriété. Les enfants se sont bien amusés à l'extérieur, les jardins de Giverny sont à 2 pas à pied, et la maison se prête aux grandes tablées et aux barbecues.
Très bonne communication avec la propriétaire.
