Claude Monet's Office


This is one of our Giverny tours which offers a unique opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Claude Monet. As you travel by minibus, watch the lush, green landscapes of the French countryside speed by as you listen to commentary provided by your driver-guide, who will take you to the small Norman village of Giverny. The artist and gardener Claude Monet lived there for 43 years, with his wife and children, until his death in 1926.

Inspired by color variations and gardening, he designed his flower garden, fruit trees and water garden as if they were one of his paintings. During your visit, stroll along the path leading up to the house, bordered by varieties of nasturtiums and roses, and take in the multicolored flower beds and their tulips, irises, narcissi and peonies. Follow your guide through the Clos Normand, a flower garden with numerous plants from the East, until you reach the exquisite water garden, famous for its water lilies, weeping willows and green-painted Japanese bridge. Be captivated by the atmosphere and the play of light over the pond, made so famous by Monet's paintings.

Then take your time exploring Claude Monet's pink house, his place of work and home for many years (guided tours of the interiors are not permitted due to limited space). Discover the blue reading room, the larder and Claude Monet's studio, reconstructed with the original furniture, and his private apartments. See the dining room, very modern in its day, with earthenware dishes and a kitchen tiled with blue and white tiles from Rouen. In the dining room, examine one of the world's largest collections of Japanese prints.

After your visit, make the most of your free time and visit Giverny's Impressionisms Museum, dedicated to the Impressionist movement in France and abroad. You can also enjoy the village and the charming gift and book shop, housed in what was once the Water Lilies studio. It covers more than 3,200 square feet and offers a wide range of gifts linked to the art of Claude Monet.

After your two-hour visit, you will return to your Paris accommodation by minibus.

Because of traffic, departure was delayed but we were given taxi service to and from hotel. Small group was very comfortable with good van and driver. Our guide did not provide any commentary during the trip as website described. Giverny was lovely and very worthwhile to visit.

Our guide and driver got us to the gardens by 2:30 with our last pick up of guests about 1:30 pm in Paris. He said it was very crowded, which it was. So crowded that it made the whole experience unpleasant. It was literally wall to wall people, walking slowly around the water garden, then colliding in the two way tunnel back to the home and garden. The walk around the larger garden was less crowded but there was a long line to get into the house. I had to keep watching the time and felt rushed the whole visit. I think the gardens are doing a disservice to their guests, and should begin timed ticket entrances like museums. Our driver gave us some history of Monet in the drive out, but I expected to hear commentary the whole trip. He drove back very quickly, almost a bit dangerously, and got us back to Paris at 5:45 pm, about an hour after we left The gardens at 4:45 pm.
