Trip Planner: Europe / France / Normandy / Haute-Normandie / Eure / Giverny / Fondation Claude Monet
Your visit to Fondation Claude Monet starts in a little blue sitting room painted with that same colors that Monet chose. Restorations include period decorations, such as cement tiles made in Rouen, brightly painted furniture, and copper pots that contrast the cheerful blue walls of the large kitchen. Throughout the house, you'll see Monet's personal collection of over 200 Japanese woodblocks and works of art by his Impressionist contemporaries. When you stroll across the Japanese bridge, commissioned by Monet, admire the water lilies rising from the pond, which were also inspired by Japanese garden design. Low hedges separate the garden's plots, each with its own theme, harmony, shape, composition, and color palette. Look out for rare plant varieties and wisteria planted by Monet himself.

Fondation Claude Monet Reviews
レンタカーで行きました。近くにも駐車場はありますが、少し歩くと広い駐車場があります。どちらも無料です。薔薇の咲く時期はさぞや美しいと思いますが、お花の少ない時期に訪れても楽しめるような植物が選ばれています。モネ が愛した景色を今もそのままに保たれていて映像や、写真で見るより素晴らしいものでした。原田マハさんの著書「美しき愚かものたちのタブロー」を読み、国立西洋美術館のモネ を鑑賞した後に出かけたの... more »I went by rental car. There is a parking lot nearby, but there is a large parking lot if you walk a little. Both are free. I think that the time when the rose blooms is very beautiful, but the plant which can be enjoyed even if it visits at the time when there are few flowers is chosen. The scenery That Monet loved was still preserved and it was more wonderful than what I could see in the pictures and the pictures. I read Maha Harada's book "The Tabrow of Beautiful Fools" and went out after appreciating Monet at the National Museum of Western Art, so I enjoyed the tour while imagining Mr. Matsukata who came to the atelier here to buy a painting for those who studied painting in Japan.
This is a memorable experience. A small village and flowered paths leading to Monet's water lily ponds are lovely. It helps to have an appreciation for art and his paintings. The lilies were blooming ... more »
I was fortunate to visit twice. My first visit was in April, start of tourist peak season. The best was that the Garden was in full bloom...spectacular! Amazing colors I had never seen before. Absolutely beautiful! The worst was too many people, pushing & shoving. I did not get in to visit Monet's house. I got tired of getting pushed around. The gardens are best to visit in the spring, but be patient with the crowds.... My second visit was in late October. Off season, so there were no crowds. The gardens were ready for grooming...I was able to visit inside Monet's home. The weather was a bit chilly.
Highly overrated garden just like Mona Lisa. Well it is a nice cozy garden but really not worth the time and effort it takes to travel from Paris unless you are staying very long & have seen everything the city has to offer. Also the famed Japanese bridge is beautiful in paintings but in reality quite average.
