Excursion to the house of Claude Monet from Paris

The famous painter Claude Monet lived for 43 years, from 1883 to 1926, in this house in the Norman village Giverny, just 1.5 hours from Paris.

He loved gardening and of course the colors, so his house still has wonderful and colorful gardens. The house has its furniture and of course its workshop that made its masterpieces.

You can start your tour from home to reach the magnificent gardens.

Upon entering the house, the visitor can imagine the life and the noise of the house in the time of the painter with his eight children! On the ground floor are the blue living room, the cellar where food was stored and the small studio, which at one point was turned into a kitchenette, the dining room and the kitchen.

On the first floor are the bedrooms.

Each room has its own style and color!

At home you will also see Monet’s personal collection of Japanese stamps and posters.

Monet loved Japan so much that he built a Japanese garden with a pond in the backyard.

The gardens are always very tidy and in the style of Monet and his family.

Part of the garden has flower beds with colorful flowers in a row.


€ 9.50, children 7-12 years 5 €.


The house is open for visiting every day from April 1 to November 1, from 9:30 until 6:00.
