My favorite painters are the impressionists, and I love the quietness and solitude of nature. Thus, it is no surprise that Claude Monet’s gardens at Giverny was my favorite place to visit while in France. Maybe that opinion might change if we had visited more than just the Paris and Nice vicinity.
All of the pictures are of the garden. No pictures were allowed inside the house, which was as richly colored in some instances as the garden.
We were there in early October, and I was both delighted and surprised to see such splendid color at this time of year. I can only imagine what it might be like in summer. It would be hotter and have more tourists. So, I think this was definitely the right time to go.
