Les jardins de Claude Monet

Whilst in France, one of the places we visited was the gardens and house of the artist Claude Monet. He definitely isn't my favourite artist, but his paintings are beautiful; as was his house and gardens. We stayed near Giverny, and it was about 12 minutes in the car to the house, where we had to queue for about 20 minutes to get in. I'd definitely recommend getting there early, we got there at 10am, half an hour after it opened, and it was really busy already. 
I can't remember the price, but I do recall that it was a bit over-priced for somewhere you could only spend a couple of hours. You weren't allowed to take food into the grounds, so it wasn't as if you could have stayed there and just had a picnic in the sun. 
I honestly don't know what to say about the photos, as I think they really speak for themselves.

  1. Stunning photos! ❤️❤️ www.bethanyavenoir.com

  2. Monet's gardens are gorgeous! You can definitely see how he was so inspired by this area in his paintings. It's too bad visitors are unable to picnic there, it would be such a lovely place for it! But, I guess, with picnics come garbage and that sort of thing. It makes sense, but it's too bad!

    Great photos!


    1. Aren't they? It would be a lovely place for a picnic, but I understand why they don't let you.
