Driving through Granville we saw the signs directing you to the Christian Doir museum, working in the fashion industry this was of interest to us, upon finding this attraction there was no parking facilities, there is a small car park a short walk away. The house did not open until 2pm so we did not go inside but the gardens... More

Christain Dior grew up in this pretty house overlooking the sea - a garden has been created to emphasise the links between art and perfume and the house contains a number of his creations plus an exhibition of fashion photographs. We had to wait to gain entrance as only 50 visitors are allowed at any time - we arrived after... More

Seven years ago I read an article in a woman's magazine about this museum and decided that one day I'm going there. It may have been 7 yrs but I got there. Travelled on my own and loved it.

The house is called Rhumbas and over the years of living here I have been to several exhibitions there . It was the house that Christian Dior grew up in and has great views over the sea. Well worth a visit! One word of advice "Cars" in french can mean coaches and the sign saying 'Parking Cars ' means buses... More

We went on a sunny afternoon and the visit was glorious. The garden was in full bloom. What a beautiful sight! Huge hydrangea and rose bushes. We had a wonderful stroll around the garden. There was a temporary exhibition (Dior et l'Impressionnisme) and we simply couldn't miss it. They were only allowing 50 visitors at a time and we waited... More

I really enjoyed the museum and gardens. The paintings and sculpture were such a wonderful surprise. The New Look dresses were so beautifully made. My favourite dress in the collection was one with embroidered Daisies on, some with open flowers and some closed, so clever. I was more disappointed at the modern day couture as they looked really badly made,... More

Beautiful location and great value for money. It had an impressionism art exhibition on and even my other half enjoyed the experience. Make it a must on your Normandy get-away!

we walked along the promenade and up the steps, phew! it was steep in warm weather but we took advantage of the landings to admire the view on the way up. when we reached the top the gardens were like an oasis. with the late heat wave the flowers were in bloom still and their fragrance was enchanting. a nice...

A nice walk along the promenade, and then a steep climb up steps which take you straight into the garden of the house. You need to be fairly fit to enter the museum this way - alternatively you can drive there, but parking may be a problem. We visited in August, which is when France goes on holiday, so it... More
