    I know somebody who's been there will give a better answer, but meanwhile I've done a bit of googling and found:

    "From Vernon to Giverny

    "Driving
    "Cross the bridge over the Seine (towards Beauvais) turn right on the D5 and go straight on for 5 km. Parking is free in Giverny. There is a large car park on the side of the D5, in front of the Fondation Claude Monet, and a smaller one just in front of the entrance door, in the village, rue Claude Monet. You may also park in the car park of the Museum of Impression on the D5."

    Car park shown here:

    Found this on clubmotorhome forum (March 2013):
    "Hi all can anyone help,recent Topic on another forum was about overnight parking at Monet's gardens in Giverny ,One person said yes you could overnight there, two said no over night parking .Have found Aire's nearby but would rather stay at gardens if possible.Does anyone have any up to date advice.Please"
    ... which suggests you can park to visit if nothing else.

    There is a car park where I stopped for the day, but don't know if you can overnight.

    Yes you can David, parts of the carpark we stayed on had low overhead branches and we had to look for a level spot. Enjoy, we did enough to know we will return one day. Usual caveat, try and beat the buses(y)

    If you can't get into Monet's Garden you could always try Picasso's Allotment:

    Big car park but be careful if there's been a lot of rain, saw a Hymer bogged a few years ago.

    I was shown the far end of the car park by the attandant for free over nighting. It's a lovely place and changes with the seasons.

    Yes you can park there, we parked on the little one right by the entrance, but they are helpful and advise you were is best. It's a lovely walk up the village when the tourist coaches have gone past the American gardens, which were all planted in White when we were there.

    Answering my own question, yes you can overnight at Monet's gardens in Giverny, park at the car park where the coaches park, drive into the car park where the coaches park and the Motorhome parking is signed, there is a mix of hard standing and grass. No facilities but very quite and only a few minutes walk to the Gardens. No charge for parking. We stayed there last night. Worth a visit if passing but be prepared for loads of tourists. All the other car parks now have hight barriers. If in doubt check on google maps. :)
