Tucked away in the town of Vernon is the idyllic village of Giverny where Claude Monet, the founder of the French Impressionist painting movement, made his home. Monet’s house with its famed gardens and water-lily pond, offer a fascinating insight into his paintings, as does the Fondation Claude Monet museum. On Giverny private tours you can also explore archaeological sites, ancient castles and age-old mills set amidst lush pastoral scenery.
While the origins of Giverny go back to the Gallo-Roman period, its claim to fame is its most famous resident, Claude Monet who lived here until his death in 1926. Coming into ownership of a local house in 1890, he transformed the property and created a charming flower-filled garden.
