Our Insiders' Article


According to Monet himself, his gardens are his greatest work. While his paintings radiate a simple fleeting impression of nature, many hours of preparation were spent in his garden. In addition to being a father and artist, Monet was also a talented gardener and interior decorator, an artistic side that his gardens and house will certainly reveal. Inside the house, for example, the original wooden floorboards creak under your feet and Japanese prints hang on the walls alongside copies of Monet’s own paintings. The incredible artistic journey throughout the rooms of this house will leave you deeply moved. As for the gardens, perhaps the most beautiful (and certainly the most renowned) section is the Japanese water-lily pond that Monet so often painted. As Monet had promised the statesman Georges Clemenceau the day after the armistice was signed, he gave this collection of paintings to the nation, some of which are still on display in the Musée Marmottan Monet and Musee de l'Orangerie in Paris. The pond is truly beautiful and serene, and you're sure to realize why Monet made it the subject of so much of his work.


The main attraction of Giverny is quite clearly Claude Monet’s fabulous house and garden. However, the surrounding village, as quaint as it is colorful, should not be overlooked, so make sure to take a stroll through this charming town after your guided tour! Despite the likely hoards of people, the village manages to keep a truly intimate feel about it: with its half-timbered houses, cozy inns and medieval church, it is not hard to fall in love with this most pleasant little place. It's a true haven for artists, and still today it is adorned with beautiful flowers. To make the most of your walk, stop off at the tourist office to pick up a map of the village. The signs dotted around the village describe its artistic heritage, such as the Merovingian church with its stunning stained glass windows. Plus, the church's cemetery is home to Monet's own grave, an immense tomb surrounded by the wild flowers he loved so dearly. 


With both of these guided tours, transportation is provided from Paris to Giverny and back again in a lucxury air-conditioned coach. This saves you the trouble of having to figure out the Paris train and shuttle bus schedules, and makes it so that you'll arrive directly in the village. Once you arrive, you won't want to leave this charming town. You'll be able to tour Claude Monet’s house and gardens, as well as wander around the picturestue Giverny village. The Musée des Impressionnistes is also worthwhile if you have the time to visit!


Claude Monet (1840-1926), the man who illuminated this little village, is undeniably the master of all impressionists. Friends with Renoir, Courbet and Rodin, Monet was passionate about color. So much so, it became “an obsession, a source of joy and torment” for him. Coming from a realist background, Monet broke many of the rules of painting that had been set by earlier generations and shaped the impressionist movement with his works that portray the natural beauty of his surroundings.

Parisianist Fun Fact: Art critic Louis Leroy dubbed the new generation of artists emerging at the end of the 19th Century the “impressionists”, taking the name from Monet’s 1872 painting “Impression, Sunrise”. Originally intended as a slur, the term was heartily adopted by the art world, replacing the initial name of “pleinairisme” (the art of painting in the open air) as the advent of tubes of paint allowed artists to paint outdoors.  


The Musée des Impressionnismes in Giverny is not far from the church. Not as well known as the Musée d’Orsay, the impressionist museum is still rather impressive. It boasts one permanent exhibition, displaying a painting by Monet, and presents many interesting and original collections in its temporary exhibitions. Off the beaten track, the museum sheds new light on the impressionist movement. 


The trip to Giverny is truly a breath of fresh air, full of color and flowers and greenery. Monet’s water lilies, poplar trees and haystacks are still just as magnificent 100 years on, and they are definitely worth the trip as part of a longer stay in Paris.
