At the heart of the pretty village of Giverny, the house of Claude Monet, where the artist lived with his family from 1883 to 1926, was a famous source of inspiration for the famous Impressionist painter, with its sumptuous listed Remarkable Gardens. In this place, at the heart of the Norman Enclosure and the Water Garden, both of which have been identically recreated, Claude Monet painted some of his greatest works, such as the famous Water Lilies, which are now exhibited at the Orangerie museum in Paris.

A small arm of the Epte runs through the Water Garden, which was created by the artist himself, forming a magnificent Japanese-inspired group with its famous little green bridge adorned with wisteria, a pond dotted with countless water lilies, and banks planted with weeping willows, bamboo trees, poppies and lilies. An exotic setting full of Romantic charm...

In front of the pink house with green shutters, the floral garden called the Norman Enclosure offers a splendid palette of colours from Spring to Autumn. Its countless climbing roses and abundant flower beds make it a paradise for flower-lovers!

From April to November, a tour of Monet's house as well as the superb collection of Japanese prints gathered together by Claude Monet provide an opportunity to discover the atmosphere of the master Impressionist's home, in various rooms furnished in the style of the time, such as the small blue living room, the living room-workshop, the yellow dining room and its ceramic crockery, the blue tiled kitchen and its copper utensils, and the private apartments located on the first floor.

To find out more about the history of Impressionism, its consequences and its impact on 20th-century art, don't miss the Museum of Impressionisms, a stone's throw from Monet's gardens!
