This was recommended by a Parisian as a must see, and we were not disappointed! The Gardens are absolutely beautiful, and to walk in Claude Monet's house and see how he lived, was very interesting. There is a patio restaurant close by that served delicious food, but be prepared for lots of food! :)

Loved the lily ponds and seeing the view that Monet actually painted. The house was interesting and loved seeing the view from his studio and some of the original paintings.

Early May found Le Clos Normand aglow with iris, rhodedendrons, tulips, peonies and more. Meanwhile at the water lily pond, not only was the wisteria in bloom but frogs mated on the lily pads, dancing maroon, on the water and created unique sound effects. Where was Monet? He may be long dead, but he was here, more present than he... More

i loved the history of a great artist,as well the many different gardens,the lily ponds. Also enjoyed the home where he lived. This was one of the highlights of my vacation. I did not dislike anything.

It was raining – gently, but steadily -- when we visited these gardens. This made photography very challenging, and I didn’t get photos of the quality I had hoped for. Nevertheless, the rain didn’t dampen our enthusiasm. We could see Monet’s artistic eye everywhere we looked, and this place is beautiful in any weather. I should have worn a hooded... More

To walk the paths around the water features brings Monet's vision to life. While there were crowds, they tended to congregate in just a few areas, leaving the majority of the paths to ourselves. To view the pond through the hanging branches of the large willow tree is like looking back in time.

The Clos is really the Water Gardens next to (or really behind and beyond the road of) Monet's House and Gardens. You have access to them when you purchase your ticket for Monet's House. You can access them either through an underground walkway ( goes under the road) or through a gate with a guide's assistance if you cannot use... More

We did not sit down at the restaurant, which looks like it would have been pretty with all the flowers by the outdoor tables. It was good that they had a take-away option, so we stood in line for tickets to Monet's House and ate lunch and had a glass of wine. The tomato and cheese salad came with a... More

One would think that a number of Monet's works would be available to view in a museum within a couple of blocks of his historic home. NOT SO. There were only 2 of his works in the gallery. The balance of the galleries had displays of impressionist painters. But, the museum is not all that large. Unless you are a... More

Like everyone says, it is worth to see it in one's life, very beautiful and furnished. But how is it possible to wait so much under the burning sun in the street before entering. Not even a "fast pass" type ticket for those who book on the Internet because there is not even this possibility. They clearly must improve on... More
