A chauffeur will pick you up early morning and drive to Giverny. The origin of the village is very ancient as Gallo-Roman graves are said to have been discovered there in 1838.

With a private guide we admire exceptional exclusive art of Impressionism at the Giverny Museum of Impressionism, and view exhibition currently running at the time of visit.

Giverny rised to fame in 1883 when the painter Claude Monet discovered the village whilst looking out of a train window. He found a farmhouse with a vegetable garden and an orchard of over one hectare that he transformed completely. In front of his house lies the Clos Normand, full of flowers, on the other side of the road, he developed his Japanese inspired water garden where he also had the famous water lily pond dug.

After the museum your guide takes you to Claude Monet House and Gardens. Your guide will lead you through Monet’s house and flower garden, to the Japanese bridge and the famous lily pond. It is here where Monet painted his masterpieces including “Water Lilies”.


Image


From 1887, a colony of foreign painters, mainly Americans settled in Giverny. But this seems to have been by chance and the charm of the place rather than the presence of Monet which they did not know of. The painters Sargent, Metcalf, Ritter, Taylor, Wendel, Robinson, Bruce and Breck all admired the landscape surrounding Giverny.

You will lunch in restaurant Le Jardin des Plumes, awarded Michelin star since 2015, located in the heart of the village of Giverny.
