Giverny is a small village lies 80km from Paris, on the border between the province of Normandy and the Île-de-France.

The village became famous thanks the Claude Monet's garden and home.

Monet came to live here in 1890 when he bought the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. The artist lived in Giverny until his death in 1926. He and many members of his family are interred in the village cemetery.

To see the gardens of his house is a great experience expecially in summer!!

Enjoy your visit!!

    What a pretty little town. I like Monet's pink house with the green shutters. I can just imagine how colourful it is inside his house.
