About Nigel Wilkie
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 and Coach House are our latest pride and joy. Our kids are all bilingual and we love Polish sheep dogs...you will surely meet them all !!
Nigel Wilkie purchased this cottage in 2003
Why Nigel Wilkie chose Vernon
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 cottage 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 and Coach house provide 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. Visit - Giverny - Les Andelys - Rouen - Deauville/Trouville - Paris
