The garden of Claude Monet in Giverny is where the famous impressionist artist painted the Water Lilies series. The artists’ pastel pink and green house has a lovely airy studio, which now houses reproductions of his work. Monet’s garden in Giverny is particularly delightful with a water pond, charming Japanese bridge and a profusion of flowers in every imaginable shade and colour.
Auvers-sur-Oise is a village where Vincent Van Gogh lived in a tiny attic room and painted some of his best work.
Take a trip to Normandy and see the beautiful garden that inspired Monet, and the modest dwelling of one of the world’s greatest painters, Van Gogh.

A charming country village, it was here that the impressionist painter Claude Monet chose to settle with his family and painted the famous Water Lilies series. Also referred to as the Painter of Light , Monet was one of the first artists of his time to step out of the studio and experiment with light, shadow and the varying effects of sunlight on nature. See Monet's home, garden and studio on this trip to Giverny. A profusion of flowers in every possible shade and colour makes this garden a must visit. You will be free to stroll around at your leisure and admire the pond and the Japanese bridge covered in purple wisteria.
