Wonderful flower filled paradise. Everything I expected and more, even in the rain! Pretty busy, but not uncomfortably so. We saw a lucky bride having her wedding photos taken there - how brilliant is that?

I had long wished to see this place in person, and I finally visited the place in June 2015. Getting there was a little hassle because somehow the GPS was taking us through some detour through the country side.You need to get there as early as possible, because admission is only until like 5:00 PM even in summer. It was... More

Our group enjoyed the opportunity to paint in the evening. Iit was so peaceful and beautiful and in spite of the rainy weather the flowers were brilliant. It was my fourth time visiting and each time at a different season.

It's an annex to Monet's house and garden, connected by a pedestrian tunnel, really well kept by the fondation. Nice walk, lost in thoughts, despite the crowd.

The gardens and home are lovely, but it can get quite crowded. Getting there when they opened at 9:00 worked well for us. After 1.5 hours it was getting crowded. There is a lull between the morning and evening tours from Paris, but arriving after 15:00 works well if you can't get there at 9:00.

We loved the gardens, they were magnificent. I expected them to be beautiful but I did not expect to be in awe, and I was. The gardens were in full bloom, the colors and the abundance was incredible. Loved moving from the more formal gardens to the Japanese gardens, to actually see the pond, the bridges and the willows. WOW!... More

They've preserved the place as if Claude Monet still lived there! Absolutely beautiful! The home, gardens and the infamous "Lily Pond" are magnificent! No wonder he spent tons of time painting it! It's gorgeous and in Springtime when we were there, the color of the flowers were absolutely amazing! A must see when in France!!!

The gardens and lilly pond are magnificent. We visited in the early spring when the flowers were in full bloom. While it was too early in the season for the water lillies you could still see the beauty of the pond and marvel at how it has been restored and maintained with very clever use of colour at key points...

The Foundation has done a beautiful job in restoring Monet's country home, and more importantly, his magnificent garden and lily pond to its former glory. The house and garden must be seen together on a beautiful sunny day to really appreciate it, so reschedule your trip if it is raining. Also, try to purchase your ticket in advance or go... More

After a visit at the home of Cezanne in Provence, was not expecting a lot with this destination. But it was more than I expected! His gardens are beautiful! Even if we went in early spring, flowers abound! His water lily garden was also intricate and tranquil. I wonder how much more beautiful the gardens would be in summer when... More
