Garden perfection

Mid/late May was the perfect time to see the gardens, as the wisteria, rhododendrons and azaleas were at peak bloom. Beautiful!

I think this is a place for those who love gardens, i quite like gardens, but compared with many of the glorious uk gardens this is a good average. The "Monet" experience is however entirely phoney. In the house the major paintings are pretty awful copies, where high quality prints would be somewhat better. There are four original pictures, three... More

And really, who doesn't. If you have admired Monet's art then a visit to his garden's brings it all to life. Although there a very many tourists the gardens are spacious and our visit was very enjoyable. It was a thrill to look at his lily pond and Japanese bridge that feature in his masterpieces and it will be a... More

It's been an aim of mine for many years to see where this master artist lived and worked. No need for a guide you just wander through the gardens and use your imagination to go back in time and live the inspirations that were the focus of his work. The gardens are in perfect condition with a splash of colour... More

We stayed in Giverny and attempted to visit when we first arrived at about 2pm on a Sunday afternoon. It was heaving with visitors. There is plenty of well organised free car parking but the queue for tickets was so long that we gave up and decided to come back the next day. Our B and B sold tickets which... More

I am so glad I took the trip out of Paris to Giverny to experience Claude Monet's House and Garden. I'm not very arty and I'm not a massive garden person but I truly appreciated this place. It was tranquil and serene and I really wished I stayed in Giverny overnight instead of the day trip I originally planned. It... More

The two gardens are gorgeous, especially the water garden. Gets quite busy as the day goes on, but totally worth it. The house was interesting with a variety of rooms. The gardens need to be seen for a person to really understand the scope and variety of plant life.

This garden and home of Claude Monet is a must for anyone who loves gardening and/ or painting. You will be inspired for both when you see the gardens. In the spring we saw 10,000 tulips blooming ! In the house the yellow dining room and bright blue kitchen are dramatic ! Great tip is that all the gardeners ,... More

Even though it rained on and off during our extended visit, it was fantastic. The arrival of bus tours did make it congested at times; but it was handled with good humour.

Whether it rains or shines (I have visited Monet's place under both conditions), it is an incredible place worth visiting in once lifetime. An abundance of flowers carefully arranged by colour theme, a beautiful surrounding, a real artist's palette. Best to go at opening (10:00 a.m), otherwise the line-up to enter is long (there is only one cashier) and hundreds... More
