Monet’s House and Gardens at Giverny


Although only an hour from Paris by bus, Monet’s House and Gardens at Giverny seem a world away from the summer crowds and heat of the City of Light. The Gardens at Giverny consist of two distinct and separate parts, both created by Monet – the Clos Normand, the abundant flower garden on the grounds adjacent to the house, and the Japanese inspired Water Garden that features prominently is many of Monet’s most famous paintings. As one strolls around the grounds marveling at the wildness of the design and the immense variety of flowers, it is easy to understand Monet’s passion for this idyllic setting and its inspiration.
