The master of the impressionists, Claude Monet, spent the last 43 years of his life (from 1883 to 1926) in his very famous and charming house in Giverny, Normandy, which has now been transformed into a museum. Declared a historic monument, this house welcomes 500,000 visitors each year. The visitor gets to know a little more about the artist and his family in this very well conserved romantic house, surrounded by trees and flowers, and illuminated by his impressionist touch. Inside you will find his workshop-living room, corridors, several apartments and his family kitchen, filled with brass cooking pots and blue tiles, you will also see his furniture and Japanese embossments whiwh were a source of inspiration in his paintings. Outside, the water garden allows you to enter the aesthetic and plant filled universe of Giverny Monet, with its wisteria, azaleas, roses and peonies. There is a pond, a Japanese bridge, weeping willows and of course the water lilies that he immortalised in his art. Claude Monet Giverny gardens are an enchantment, a true living painting in which one can wander around. This is a natural master piece saved from degrading thanks to American patrons.
