More information about Giverny

Giverny is a commune in the Eure department in northern France. It is best known as the location of Claude Monet's garden and home. Giverny sits on the "right bank" of the River Seine where the river Epte meets the Seine.

The village lies 80 km from Paris, west and slightly north, in the old province of Normandy. A settlement has existed in Giverny since neolithic times and a monument uncovered attests to this fact.

Archeological finds have included booties dating from Gallo-Roman times and to the earlier 1st and 2nd centuries AD. The town was known in ancient deeds as "Warnacum". The cultivation of grapes has been an occupation of the inhabitants
of Giverny since Merovingian times. The village church dates from the Middle Ages and is built partially in the Romanesque style, though additions have since been made. It is dedicated to Sainte-Radegonde.

The village has remained a small rural setting with a modest population and has since seen a boom in tourism since the restoration of Monet's house and gardens.
