After arriving in Paris my Mom and I took the train to Vernon. From there we took a bus to Giverny, which is a quick 10 minute ride. We stayed at Marie & Gilbert's guest house. It was a fun experience getting settled in with them as they do not speak English, but they were very friendly and accomodating.
The day-trippers had all gone for the day so we were able to fully enjoy the beauty and peace of this town without the the hustle of other tourists. We enjoyed a leisurely stroll from one end of the town and back again, getting distracted a long the way by beautiful hillsides and winding pathways. Everything in and around this town was beautiful and picturesqe. Even their bus stops are cute!
