Set on the right bank of the Seine at less than one hour drive from Paris, Giverny is famous worldwide for the gardens that Claude Monet spent so much time painting.
The home of the Master of Impressionism, now restored, has regained the colours, the furniture, the Japanese prints and the china that Monet loved. Facing the house and studio, the Clos Normand displays a breath-taking palette of flowers and colours.
The water garden, with its Japanese bridge, water lilies, wisteria and azaleas, recreates the image that so inspired Monet.
Best visiting Claude Monet’s house and gardens is from Spring until Autumn.
