This stage has both intimacy and grandeur. Here the little bridges, windmills and fortified castles of the peaceful Epte Valley contrast with the touristic bustle of the village of Giverny. The many miles of greenway created between Gasny and Gisors provide the ideal opportunity to really appreciate the bucolic landscapes punctuated by the river and several lakes. But don’t forget that you are also on the old frontier between France and Normandy which takes you towards the legendary chateau of Gisors.
