We made our own way from Paris which was easy but not particularly cheap. The buses between the station and garden are infrequent so plan your day. As August is the French holiday period it was fairly quiet early on. We never felt crowded and went around calmly and unhurried. The staff were very polite and unobtrusive. Everything was well...

Loved this garden which I have always wanted to visit. Buy tickets online beforehand then go to the groups and individual passes entry before opening time. We were let in as soon as we arrived and immediately visited the water garden before the tour groups arrived. Wander the garden and take your time to take it all in. The house... More

Monet's house now serves as a museum but all his furniture are still there (even the kitchen stuff) and the walls are decorated with a lot of paintings, most notably a surprisingly large number of Ukiyo-e, the famous Japanese woodcuts that so strongly influenced him and other impressionists. The huge garden is divided into two parts separated by the main... More

Visit took place first week August - Gardens overflowing with flowers and people. Queues outside in high temperatures - mid 30's - ice cream vendor enjoyed constant stream of punters. Inside queues change from waiting to get in to buy a ticket, to waiting yet again to view house, to waiting to stand on THAT bridge. Still beautiful despite crowds.... More

My husband and I visited Monet's house and gardens on a Friday in August. We rented a car in Paris for the day, plugged the address in to the GPS, and off we went. It really is an easy hour's drive - very doable. We enjoyed being on our own timeline (not with a tour or needing to catch a... More

Stop thinking about it! Go and visit them! You will travel inside Monet's paintings. The place to go after or before the Impressionim Museum!

An explosion of colours, shapes and the most beautiful combinations of flowers we ever saw. We enjoyed an early entrance, hardly anyone there yet.Overwhelming. A great place to spend a few hours which gives you the feeling of actually walking in one of Monet's paintings.

An excellent tour guide provided commentary for us through the gardens of Monet and took us to Monet's home, which we were required to tour without her commentary. An extensive gift shop provided the opportunity to buy books about Monet and his works and items, both inexpensive and more costly, showcasing his works. It was one of our favorite portions... More

Arrived early morning to miss some of the crowds and the summer heat. Absolutely stunning and more beautiful than I had imagined with everything in full bloom and at its best. The house was lovely with pictures on the walls and furniture just as it was when Monet was alive and living there. Beautifully recreated. Gift shop had an excellent... More
