Le Clos Fleuri Review
Giverny's dire shortage of hotels is compensated by several stylish, and affordable bed-and-breakfasts in village homes, and this is among the best—the domaine of the charming Danielle and Claude Fouche (Danielle speaks English thanks to years spent in Australia); within a large garden, with Giverny's picturesque church steeple looming in the background, just 600 yards from Monet's estate and a bit farther from the Musée des Impressionnismes, Le Clos beckons enticingly. Inside, three sweet and tranquil accommodations (each with its own entrance and private patio) welcome weary travelers: the "Poppies" and "Waterlilies" rooms have Louis Philippe–style beam ceilings and overlook the gardens, while "Clematis" has a very dramatic cathedral ceiling. The couple adores gardening and are fonts of information about touring the immediate area. Book well in advance.
