Here, the master of Impressionism, Claude Monet, lived from 1883 until his death in 1926. For 43 years Monet settled down in this house that he completely renovated. He also transformed the whole domain, including the garden that he so much appreciated, and became the model for his paintings. You will marvel at the floral compositions of the garden in front of the house called the Clos Normand. He used to say: "Beyond painting and gardening, I am good for nothing."

By diverting a small river, Monet completely created this water garden. Deeply inspired by 'Japonism' - influence of Japanese art on French Artists and writers - he creates a unique world. A Japanese Bridge is built and oriental plants are introduced such as maple trees, Japanese peonies, white lilies, bamboos and Ginkgos Biloba. In 1897, Monet began to paint the "Nymphéas" series inspired by the water lilies pond, achieving one of his most famous artwork reaching the limit of abstraction.
