ShoreTrips says...

Best known as the location of Claude Monet's garden and home, Giverny, a village and commune in northern France, sits on the "Right Bank" of the River Seine just 50 miles from Paris.

Claude Monet noticed the village of Giverny while looking out the window of a train he was riding on. He made up his mind to move there, and rented a house and the area surrounding it until he had earned enough money to buy the house and land himself. Once it was in his possession, he set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. His gardens are full of rare plants that he ordered from all over the world. As you will be able to tell once you arrive, some of his most famous paintings, such as his water lily and Japanese bridge paintings, were of his garden in Giverny.

When he arrived, the house also looked different from what it is today. Monet enlarged it by integrating two sheds at each end and had a balcony built along the façade. He chose the colors himself, the very ones that can be seen today. His first studio was inside the house: this room was later transformed into a drawing room where coffee was served after lunch and where Monet would exhibit his latest paintings. Later, he had a new studio built on the western side of the domain and, in 1916, a third one (now the museum shop) specially built for the large canvasses that he started painting in his later years.

In recent years, the house and gardens have been restored and the Foundation Claude Monet has become a popular place to visit, particularly in the summer when the flowers are in bloom.
