Alte Burg mit schöner Aussicht

Scary place. We stayed there for 2 nights. There were no lights, mud EVERYWHERE, and very rude owners. NO HOT WATER!!!! Mean dog that barked at us whenever we left. There were MICE!!! Making noises throughout the night. Also not sure if there is a ghost or not, but it sounded like people walking throughout the night. Left the place completely spotless and the owner told us that we left the place insanely dirty. Complete lie. We hand washed all the dishes and made all of the beds. Everything in the house looked EXACTLY how we found it. Never would recommend to anyone coming here. Find somewhere else to stay or else they will expect you to deep clean the place or hire a maid!! Awful experience. Never again.

We stayed their 2 nights and would not stay again. We paid a non-refundable cleaning deposit and then the owner complained the kitchen was not clean when we left even though I hand washed all dishes and made sure all garbage was in garbage. Place was clean when we left but I guess he wantss to pocket cleaning deposit instead of using it to clean. The place itself is strange and I do not recommend as the owner who lives there will be all over you. No hot water first day. Not worth it.

Would be a great place to stay but the owner was a jerk. We left the place clean and tidy and paid a cleaning fee, then the idiot had the nerve to say we left the place in a mess. Jerk. No hot water our first day. Just plain spooky. Find some other place! This is not somewhere you will be comfortable. You cannot walk the actual ruins. You are staying in renovated servant quarters without Wi-Fi. Owner was completely expecting us to clean the house from top to bottom even after we paid the non-refundable cleaning fee. Find some other place to stay. I do not recommend this place. Avoid it at all costs. Stay somewhere else.

Monet's Garden

Claude Monet lived for forty-three years, from 1883 to 1926, in Giverny. With a passion for gardening as well as for colours, he conceived both his flower garden and water garden as true works of art. Walking through his house and gardens, visitors can still feel the atmosphere which reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionnism and marvel at the floral compositions and nymphéas, his greatest sources of inspiration.

In 1890 Monet had enough money to buy the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his garden in Giverny, famous for its rectangular Clos normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around colored shrubs, and the water garden, formed by a tributary to the Epte, with the Japanese bridge, the pond with the water lilies, the wisterias and the azaleas.

Today the Monet's Garden is open to the public.
