Vernonette – Normandy – France

Near Vernon and Monet’s home at Giverny is the scenic village of Vernonette. Located on the edge of the river Seine.

Many are the visitors in Vernon or Giverny who cross the river Seine and who notice, near the bridge, a quaint-looking old building perched above the water on the decaying piers of the old bridge. It is called " Le Vieux Moulin " (the old Mill) and if the foliage is not too thick, behind this former mill, they can also see the towers of a medieval castle called Château des Tourelles (Turret Castle). These visitors, in a hurry to go to their destination, give the place nothing more than a glance while at the same time finding it ‘quite nice and picturesque’.

You are in front of the most typical view of Vernon, a site loaded with history, a site which inspired lots of painters – both amateur and professional – a site that can be seen even in American Museums The Old Mill by Claude Monet in New Orleans Museum

    First thanks for the history lesson for without it, I probably would not have lingered so long. Someone had “dream,” and saw a unique space for a residence/business with a view. The next time I am in New Orleans I will look this inspiration up.
