Claude Monet's House and Gardens
(10)
If you like art, there is no better place to visit than this. In Normandy, along the Seine, near Paris, he arrives at Government House, which was the residence of Claude Monet from 1883. Faced with this, the impressionist painter built gardens where different plants combined to create one of the scenarios that will be represented in many of his works. The visitor goes deeper into a magical garden giving the impression of being sucked into one of the pictures hanging in the Museum D'Orsay, to be abstracted to mere reality. You can stroll through the green paths and get lost among different coloured flowers scattered at random. A lake divides the garden into two and you can cross over the famous Japanese bridge. The strong Japanese influence is reflected in the water which serves as a mirror for the hanging trees planted on the banks of the pond. This scene resembles a watercolor painting with floating water lilies. An afternoon spent outdoors walking through these gardens really brings you closer to the work of Monet. Depending on the time of year, this wonderful place will transport you to a different painting.
