While the official route of the Avenue Verte turns east at Bray-et-Lû, this extra, unofficial stage offers you the enticing additional option of heading down to Giverny, a place of exceptional importance in the history of Impressionism, as Monet settled here to paint, creating his fabulous garden with waterlily ponds. Also press on to the banks of the Seine around the town of Vernon. Savour the beautiful villages around here and the unique atmosphere of a particularly wonderful area.

A greenway links Bray-et-Lû and Gasny down the Epte Valley, going via a disused railway line. Little roads then lead you to Giverny. Another greenway connects Giverny to Vernon and the Vernonnet area. However, be aware that the D 5 road from Gasny to Giverny is not considered suitable for cyclists. Bear in mind that it's easy to join or finish the Avenue Verte route here, simply by taking a train between Paris and Vernon, or vice versa – Vernon has very good rail links with the capital.
