Self-catering holiday homes to rent in Eure, France

Eure is a department in the north of France named after the river Eure and it’s part of the region of Haute-Normandie. The department is a largely wooded plateau intersected by the valleys of the Seine River and its tributaries. The altitude varies from sea level to 248 metres in the south.

Évreux, the capital of the Eure, is situated in the pleasant valley of the Iton. The seat of a bishop, its cathedral is one of the largest and finest in France. At Le Vieil-Évreux (old Évreux), 3½ miles southeast of the town, the remains of a Roman theatre, a palace, baths and an aqueduct have been discovered, as well as various relics, notably the bronze of Jupiter Stator, which are now deposited in the museum of Évreux.

The main tourist attraction in the Eure is Giverny (4 km from Vernon) which you won’t want to miss when you stay in an Eure holiday rental home. Giverny is where Claude Monet's house and garden can be seen. The village sits on the "right Bank" of the River Seine and lies 80 km (50 miles) from Paris.

Claude Monet noticed the village while looking out of a train window, and he decided to move there and rented a house and the area surrounding it. In 1890 he 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, such as his water lily and Japanese bridge paintings, were of his garden in Giverny.

Monet lived in Giverny from 1883 until his death in 1926. He and many members of his family are interred in the village cemetery. Monet's house and gardens were opened to the public in 1980. They have become a popular tourist attraction (the Fondation Claude Monet), particularly in the summer when the flowers are in bloom.

The other main attraction of the village is the Museum of the Impressionism. The Hôtel Baudy was a center of artistic life in the Giverny heyday. It is now still a café and restaurant, with period decoration.

The Abbey of Bec and the Château-Gaillard near Les Andelys are other important tourist attractions in Eure which are worth a visit when you rent a self-catering holiday cottage in Eure.
