Description

Leader of the Impressionist movement, Claude Monet moved to Giverny in 1883 with the aim of painting “outdoors”. He remained there until his death in 1926. He lived there in a large house, a former apple mill and created the gardens around him. He thus imagined a Norman enclosure, filled with flowers of bright colors, daffodils, tulips, peonies, irises, narcissi, poppies, nasturtiums, and of course roses.

Monet also designed an orientalist water garden, more intimate, with a small Japanese bridge, bamboos, weeping willows, ginkgos and a pond covered with the famous water lilies.

The place is calm and cheerfulness. It is open only when the weather is good, from April to October. This is of course when everything is blooming that it is good to stroll there… Visiting Monet’s gardens give his paintings life and strength. Emotion is great when you imagine the old master pacing the paths of the garden, easel under the arm and brushes in hand.

The house and its park have now become the Claude Monet Foundation. In the city, you can also visit the Museum of Impressionists, and see the tomb of Claude Monet, in the cemetery of the church, where the painter is buried alongside his wife and some of his children.
