About Nigel

We are an anglophone(American/Scottish) couple who have lived in France for some 20 years. Over the years we have lovingly renovated a selection of furnished apartments in Paris, Vernon-Giverny (Normandy) and Dinard (Brittany), as well as longer established properties in Notting Hill, London.

The Gardner's Lodge is our latest pride and joy.

Our kids are all bilingual and we love Polish sheep will surely meet them all !!

Nigel purchased this lodge in 2003

Why Nigel chose Upper Normandy

We bought our 19th century Villa in the town of Vernon near Giverny because it provided an ideal and secure space for our family within commuting distance to Paris where we both work.

The Villa had out-houses at the back of the grounds. They would have been the carriage house/stables 150 years ago and needed renovation or demolition !

We chose the former and have created a lovely property that has a country feel but is close to the amenities of a small market town (25,000 inhabitants).

What makes this lodge unique

Vernon is a quiet market town with a main line station to Paris. The station (only 2 minutes from the Lodge) is the arrival point for visitors to Giverny, Claude Monet's famous home.

The Lodge provides an ideal base to visit the sites of 'Haute-Normandie' and Paris (only 45min away). Vernon itself has a great market every Saturday and we are usually available to show you around if required.

It is also an ideal retreat for an artist or writer looking to spend some creative time in calm but inspirational surroundings.

Romantic stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! It was very romantic and cozy! The property was very clean and had everything you would need for a perfect stay. The pictures on the website were accurate. It was our favorite property in our 2 week stay in France. Highly recommend!

Lovely lodge in great location

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed here for 3 days to meet some friends in Giverney. The Lodge is very well maintained and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The location is excellent as stated before, with a very short walk to the station, where as well as trains you can get a shuttle bus to Giverney for 4 euros each way.

Vernon is a nice little town, quite sleepy in the evening (well mid week in late September it was!) but we had some nice meals at L'Envie and Le Capitinaire (or something like that-book a table with a river view) for circa 25 euros for 3 courses which we thought was very reasonable for the quality of food. All in all a very pleasant stay.

Awesome Location in France

  • 5 of 5

This Property was much better than I expected. The location is perfect! The train to Paris and beyond is a 4 minute walk. (45 minutes to Paris on the train)

The Farmers Market is on Saturday and Wednesday mornings. It was wonderful.

This is a great walking town. A few minute drive to Giverny to see Monet's garden. Very god restaurants. The owner is very helpful. This house is perfect for two people. There is a pull out couch in the living area for extra people. The kitchen is equipped nicely.

Adorable petite maisonnée, proche Giverny

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 3 superbes journées à Vernon, dans cette petite maison située au bout du jardin des propriétaires, des gens charmants, anglophones d'origine mais maîtrisant suffisamment le français pour être pleins de bons conseils! Une entrée indépendante avec places de parkings toujours libres juste en face. Confortable, propre, déco sympa, 4 couchages pour des personnes qui s'entendent bien (2 lits en 140). Région magnifique à découvrir pour ces paysages adorables (Giverny entre autres..) et ses nombreux sites culturels (château de Bizy, château de La Roche-Guyon, et en poussant un peu, les ruines de l'abbaye de Jumièges, magnifique !). Il nous reste encore beaucoup de choses à visiter, nous reviendrions au Lodge avec grand plaisir!
