This is the view from the back of the cottage in Hameau de Normandie. The closest town is Vernon on the river Seine. Just across the river is Giverny where Monet had his house and designed his wonderful garden. I visited there frequently when I stayed in my friends cottage and looked after his cats and painted the Normandy landscape. There are two Blaru landscapes on this site which you can look at by clicking on the link and reading more about the thinking behind making these Normandy landscapes.
