The house is representative of how Monet lived, worked and entertained. The garden was a riot of colour even this late at in the year. Although the paths through the garden are restricted the colours are blended beautifully and the management of the planting is very good. The real attraction, inevitably is the water garden which is stunning. To get... More

Fat Tire Bikes does a wonderful day excursion to Monet's home and garden. You take a pleasant train ride to Vernon. They provide simple but sturdy bikes when you arrive and take you to the daily market so you can buy your lunch. Lunch is beside the Seine near the old mill with the broken bridge. Romantic!! Then you hop... More

We tried to get to this garden as early as we could to avoid the crowds as much as possible which worked for us. We got the train from Paris and there was a taxi driver with a little sign on his car who took us to and from the garden. The garden itself was everything we imagined - loved... More

Did not disappoint! The gardens are spectacular, and the staff handle the entry numbers so well that despite the large number of visitors the gardens never felt too crowded. Best to get there when it opens though. This place is a garden photographer's dream, and the scenes still so recognizable from Monet's paintings make it an extra thrill for art... More

We are so glad we made time in our visit for Giverny. We had looked into it and some reviews both here and elsewhere said that the late fall is not worth the trouble for the gardens. We squeezed in on the last day it was open for the season at the end of October and were so glad we... More

Visited last October before the winter closure of Monet's foundation, it was not so cold but I didn't expect to be able to see a similar explosions of colours. Easy to understand why Monet chose this place! The house is surrounded by a Japanese garden with green bridges, a small canal and a lake with the famous "ninphee" the ones... More

I have wanted to visit Monet's garden and house since I first admired his impressionist paintings many years ago. The house is exceptional with lovely views of the gardens. In my opinion the most beautiful place is the kitchen. All that yellow and blue with gleaming copper pots. It is stunning. The gardens are a riot of colour and it... More

Needless to say about Claude Monet and his magnificent painting! More so when you have the opportunity to visit his original house in Giverni,France and see for yourself the places that inspired him to make his paintings! Simply fascinating! Flowers, lakes, the places where he painted his paintings and the places in his original property where he created seeing nature,... More

Enjoyed another tour of Claude Monet's House and Garden. The pretty yellow and blue kitchen was my favorite room in the house. Enjoyed all the pictures throughout the house and loved looking out at the colorful gardens from the bedroom upstairs.

I encourage a short visit to the gardens. 2 hours should do the trick. Don't miss walking thru house too.
