We were not blessed with the best weather during our visit, but it did nothing to ruin our enjoyment of the day. Not having green fingers myself, I wondered if this was my 'cup of tea'. However, from a historic point of view this place has a real aura about it. By far my favourite part was wandering around the... More

We visited Monet's house and garden on our tour to the Normandy/Loire area. Was there early to beat the crowd in April. The garden could have been more colorful in May or June as the blooms were just surfacing. The Japanese garden was too crowded with plants not found usually for such a themed garden except for the mini bamboo... More

Monet's garden tour was stunning. Really beyond words! The colours were so vibrant and the light stunning. Such a serene place to visit. The town, and surroundind townships were a step back into the past, with stone buildings and narrow streets. Well worth organising a tour to visit this region!

If you like Impressionist paintings and gardens, this is a real treat. Although I would not recommend this site for a first trip to Paris (there are so many other things to see), I enjoyed seeing the Claude Monet house and the garden used for inspiration for some of his works. Early April was a little early for things to... More

This is an amazing place and one can actually visualize what Claude Monet himself was looking at in his paintings. The place is usually crowded and you will need to walk about a block or two from the parking "field" to the place. Be sure to bring your camera .

The house and contents were interesting, the garden was beautiful, and although we were not there in the right season to see the water lilies it was still worth the visit.

Drove from CDG to Monet's Home in Giverney. Getting out of Paris, even just skirting the northern suburbs was torturous. Once we got into the country, the drive was interesting and easy. The Home and Gardens have been lovingly restored and maintained. All very low key and in pretentious. All very fitting. It was a great opportunity to see what... More

Even on an early spring visit, Monet's Gardens are impressive! You can see how colorful the flowers are and how the gardens are aesthetically arranged. It is worth returning before fall.

We went on a guided tour 1/2 day at Giverny (Monet's garden & house), lunch at a provincial restaurant in an old converted water mill (excellent) and a 1/2 day tour of Versailles (which I will deal with in a later review). Half a day is fine if all you want to do is wander and observe. We wanted to... More

Have looked forward to this visit for many years and thoroughly enjoyed it. A garden with so much to enjoy which changes with the seasons so we had blossom and tulips, hyacinths and daffodils etc to enjoy. The house is great especially the furnishings and the kitchen and dining room.
