Bike Tour to Giverny

 

 

We start in the medieval town of Vernon where we will buy our picnic supplies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

         

 

 

After Vernon we'll pick up a bike trail to Monet's house and gardens at Giverny where you'll have the opportunity to do a one-hour visit of the house and gardens on your own.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After you have enjoyed the house and gardens we'll leave the tourist crowds behind and begin our journey into the tranquil and scenic countryside of the Epte river valley. About 10km after leaving Giverny we'll stop to have our picnic lunch next to this beautiful 18th century mill on the banks of the Epte River.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After our picnic lunch we'll rejoin the dedicated bike trail that we'll enjoy riding on for the rest of the day. The bike trail will take us through a scenic valley and along the way we'll pass by small villages and hamlets. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

        

We'll pass by lovely meadows and the occasional chateau.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The destination for our journey will be the medieval town of Gisors. Gisors is a lovely and lively little town famous for its 11th to 12th century motte and bailey type stone fortress.
