Description
Experience the beauty of Claude Monet's home and gardens on this day trip from Paris to the edge of Normandy. Travel in style aboard a luxury minibus with one of our expert guides, so you can sit back, relax and make the most of your day. Claude Monet lived here from 1883 to 1926, and the colourful décor and pink brick facade are an intimate reminder of its former life. The precious collection of Japanese engravings is displayed in several rooms, hung in the marble chosen by the master of Giverny himself. After completion of large scale restoration work, the property has become the Claude Monet Foundation, inaugurated in 1980. The huge Nymphéas studio, a stone’s throw from the house, has also been restored and contains the Foundation’s Shop. The gardens have been replanted as they once were and offer visitors the “painting from nature” which Claude Monet’s contemporaries considered to be one of his masterpieces. The rectangular Clos Normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around brilliantly coloured shrubs, lies before the house and studios, offering from Spring to Autumn the palette of varying colours to the painter-gardner who was “ecstatic about flowers”. Lastly, the Water Garden, formed by a tributary of the Epte, lies further away, shaded by weeping willows. With its famous Japanese Bridge, its wistarias, azaleas and its pond, it has once more become that casket of sky and water which inspired the pictorial universe of the water lilies. This small-group tour is limited to 18 people, providing an intimate experience. You will be able to wander around the Impressionist painter’s former home and visit the gardens to see beautiful sights where some of Monet’s inspiration came from. The price includes transport by air-conditioned coach or minibus and entrance fee to Claude Monet's Home. However, it does not include hotel pickup and drop-off, food and drinks, unless specified, and gratuities (optional). A guide at Monet's Home and Gardens is also not included. This is a unique opportunity to explore the home and gardens of one of the most famous Impressionist painters. Don't miss out on this amazing experience!
