On the footsteps of Claude Monet

We will pick you up at your hotel for your very special journey to the marvelous Giverny village.
By the time Monet moved to Giverny, he was a well-established artist and well-known as the father of Impressionism, but this was not always the case. His new artistic style focusing on depicting the changes of light was not common at the time. But what a better way of fulfilling one’s passion, than creating a live studio in the French countryside! In the quiet Normandy village of Giverny, Monet found a place where his love for gardening and outdoor painting could be fully expressed: he designed two different gardens both aesthetically expressive with plenty of life, colors and shapes: the Clos Normandie and the water gardens with Japanese influence. We will go for a wander here to fully appreciate Monet’s live subjects: let’s soak up the harmony of light and immerse in his bouquet of different shades of colors of flowers & plants.

After visiting the gardens, we will step inside Monet’s home. Let’s get immerse by the colors he choose to decorate his house: you will be amazed by the manifestation of his painting palette.

Walk around with your guide bringing alive each rooms and their stories so you can step inside the daily life of Monet and his family. Admire the bright yellow dining room with its yellow furniture (very modern at the time!) and his unique collection of Japanese art. Soak up the atmosphere in the bright blue kitchen with its contrasting copper red utensils and imagine the culinary concoctions made here for Monet and his family.

The village itself is well worth a walk to discover the Auberge Baudry where artists from France but also from the United States came to pay a visit to Monet. On request and if time allows, you’ll also discover the little medieval church and Monet’s grave.

A visit to Giverny is a perfect day trip out of Paris to meet Monet and take a glimpse at rural France.
