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 dogs...you will surely meet them all !!

Nigel purchased this lodge in 2003

Why Nigel 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 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.

Relaxing Weekend in Vernon

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I really enjoyed our weekend in Vernon staying at the Gardner's Lodge. The property was exactly as advertised, clean and the area around it was peaceful. Their is a grocery store a couple of blocks away and we were able to cook most of our time there. Several blocks in the other direction is the town center where you will find Cafes and small shops. We had breakfast there one morning before walking to Giverny - it was a dream come true. The owners were helpful and attentive, we highly recommend staying here.

A Delightful Spot

  • 5 of 5
My daughter, granddaughter, and I stayed in Gardner's Lodge for our final week in France. After two weeks of sightseeing in London and Paris, we were ready to relax in a quieter place. Vernon was the perfect town for us. It's only a few minutes by car to Giverny, and I understand there's a walking path as well. We had a rental car, but it would also work not to have a car and just take day trips to Paris via the train, which stops two blocks from the Lodge. The shops, restaurants, and Saturday outdoor market are charming, and even in August there weren't hoards of people as there had been in Paris. The actual Lodge matches the photos--no disappointing surprises as we've sometimes had-- and Nigel and Pam couldn't have been more welcoming. Our only regret was that we couldn't have stayed longer.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and liked our little town and the farmer's market as much as we do. I have a feeling your French speaking granddaughter will be back one day, at least to France !

Very Nice Property Near Giverny

  • 5 of 5
Spent four nights at this property at the end of may. Our hosts were very pleasant and non-intrusive. Everything was as advertised. The upstairs bedroom may be tough for folks getting on in years or with mobility issues. We just left our luggage downstairs. Also the tub was a bit of a challenge and had no shower curtain. Great access to Giverny and Les Andelys; as well as Paris. Restaurants and stores are close by. Clean and well maintained. An iron and ironing board would have been nice to have. Great fit for what we needed and an excellent property!

Dreamy Gardener's Cottage

Dreamy Gardener's Cottage
  • 5 of 5
I recently spent a portion of my annual May trip to France at the Gardener's Cottage
and wish I had stayed longer.
The location, proximity to Paris, Giverny and Normandy in general could not have
been any better. The photos of the cottage only hint at the charm, and the owners exceed it.
I will definitely be returning for a longer stay soon.

Giverny!

  • 5 of 5
I spent nearly a month at the Gardener’s Lodge this spring, using it as my home base to explore Giverny, Paris, and Normandy. I found the Gardener’s Lodge to be a welcoming and lovely place to reside during my adventures in France! The owners Nigel and Pam are English speaking, which helped me with orientation to my new environment. Nigel met me at the train station in Vernon, and explained quite carefully everything I would need to understand about the lodge and Vernon. Pam showed up with food for my dinner that first night as I had arrived on a Sunday evening, and the grocery stores were closed.
The Gardener’s Lodge is equipped with everything I needed during my stay. The website photos are accurate, and capture the charm of the setting. I also enjoyed listening to the cooing of the doves that live in the big trees on the property. I was very thankful of having Nigel and Pam nearby to ask questions about situations that puzzled me, like a closed train station on Pentecost….I had no idea that day was a national holiday!
I had the trip of a lifetime exploring this part of France. Having the Gardener’s Lodge as a home base is what made this all possible for me. Vernon is an enchanting village, with a wonderful outdoor market, museum, and cathedral. Being near Giverny was why I chose to reside in Vernon during my trip. I was able to visit Monet’s Garden once per week and see the progression of flowers during my time in France. There was also an Impressionist’s Exposition in several cities in Normandy (Giverny, Rouen, Le Havre, and Caen) during my stay, and I visited them all! I visited the picturesque village of Honfleur and enjoyed the mirror reflections of its boat basin. I was also able to visit Mount St Michel, the medieval abbey on the coast of Normandy.
I took the train into Paris nine times from Vernon. It is easy and inexpensive (28 euros round trip) to do. It is just a short walk from the Gardener’s lodge over to the train station. The train is direct and fast into Gare St. Lazare train station in Paris with easy connections by bus and metro around the city. I felt that I had seen everything that interested me to discover in Paris and Normandy. And I was able to have all these adventures from a comfortable and friendly home base.

Owner's Response: Wow, thank you so much. I think you really took advantage of The Gardner's Lodge location as an ideal base to explore the wider Normandy region and Paris from our place, not to mention nearby Giverny.

I am so glad it worked out for you as a single traveller too. I think you acheived more than most in the time you were with us.

Hope all the pictures you took will inspire a painting frenzy when you get back !
