Le Jardin des Plumes at Giverny
Recently restored by Michelin-star chef Éric Guérin, this 1912 building originally created by a collaborator of Gustave Eiffel (Eiffel Tower), boasts eight rooms and a delightful restaurant.
This charming century-old house sits just down the road from Claude Monet’s garden and evokes a sense of tranquility and proximity to nature reflecting in its interior design, from the rooms to the restaurant.
The dining room is flooded with light, elegant and spaceous. Recommended by Gault & Milau, the hotel’s restaurant is run by Eric Guerin, whose inventive, contemporary cuisine, sometimes with local (Normandy) accents gives pride of place to regional products with dishes composed with respect for the seasons and the product.
On the excellent menu you find the specialties such as Alpine gruyere with red tuna sashimi, leek and mustard, or chicken from Vallee d’Auge marinated in cider and calvados, slowly cooked and served with double cream and homemade bread with locally made cheese. The restaurant also offers a special tasting menu for the more adventurous foodies.
Well worth a visit if not only for the food but the splendid surroundings and beautiful flower-rich village of Giverny, the inspiration for many of Monet’s most famous works. We recommend you take a tour through Monet’s house and luscious gardens before lunching or dining at Le Jardin des Plumes.
