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 Eure

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.

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!

Lovely property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 lovely days at the lodge. The property is gorgeous and contained everything we needed. Pam and Nigel are great hosts. The location was ideal for a day trip by train to Paris and a visit to Monet's spectacular gardens. We chose to walk to the garden, but there is also a shuttle bus from the station. There is no off-street parking at the lodge, but there was ample free parking nearby.

The Gardener's Lodge.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The The Gardner’s Lodge in Vernon. Nigel and Pam are great and made us feel so welcome. The cottage was comfortable and had everything we needed. It looks just like the pictures. If we are back in this area, we will definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: We would love to see you back in the area another time. The town has just introduced a "petit train" to take people to the main sites so that should be fun!

The Gardener's Lodge

  • 5 of 5

The Gardner’s Lodge worked especially well for us during our 3-week stay. The Lodge was comfortable with a nice patio area between our cottage and an identical cottage facing ours. The appliances were modern and the furnishings worked effectively and tastefully with the design and historical nature of the Lodge. We had everything we needed for our stay. We drove from Paris CDG to Vernon, about a one hour+ drive on a Sunday morning. We easily explored Vernon by foot and took day-trips to visit nearby sites and even further afield places such as Caen, Etretat, Honfleur, the Normandy beaches, Mont-St-Michel, and drove the Route du Cidre. We cooked about two-thirds of our dinners at home using produce/fish/meats/bread purchased at the local markets or at the Wednesday/Saturday markets in Vernon. The owners (Nigel and Pam) were extremely welcoming and helpful with their suggestions for places to visit. We would gladly recommend this place to anyone wanting a similar experience and actually did so to folks we met at the airport on our way back to the U.S.

Owner's Response: You really made the most of your stay, well done. Also glad things worked out for the visit to Bonnard's house. Hope you enjoyed the Pol Bury expo in Paris. Maybe bump into you in the local bistro again one night !
