Welcome to the village where Claude Monet, the painter and gardener lived,

Claude Monet lived from 1883 to 1926, forty-three years, in his house in Giverny. he was passionate about gardening as well as colour. He designed his garden of flowers as if they were artworks. The atmosphere generated by this master of impressionism can still be felt to this day whilst walking through his house and garden.
The museum explores the history, the origins, the geographical diversity and the evolution towards other artistic movements. It is interested in impressionist artists, as well as the precursors of the movement and its heirs, from the end of the 19th century to the present day. Each year, two to three major exhibitions are displayed.

For more than 800 years, the Château-Gaillard has been keeping watch from the top of its rocky outcrop over the Andelys, one of the most beautiful loops of the Normandy Seine
Built in record time, between 1196 and 1198, in order to protect the Seine and the city of Rouen from the claims of the French king, Philippe Auguste, the Château-Gaillard was at the time hugely successful as a defensive castle.
Built in a square design, this 17th century Chateau consists of two large connected wings, on the entrance side, by a gallery with a large portico and above it has a wonderful balustrade.
The gardens are listed as “Remarkable Gardens”.
The guiding inspiration for the design of the garden at that time will have been to be both contemporary and classic.
