Claude Monet, the painter who founded the Impressionist school lived in Giverny for 43 years.
His house and his garden, the village of Giverny and its surroundings, were his subject matter and they still attract half a million visitors each year from all over the world, as well as painters, charmed by the unique light of the Seine Valley.
And this little spot in Normandy has much more to offer. Its history dates back to the paleolithic period, and the area abounds in archeological sites, prestigious castles, mysterious mills, wonderful gardens and rich museums.
The Seine Valley is also turned to the future : the rocket engines of the European launcher Ariane are produced in Vernon.
