Stroll through the beautifully landscaped gardens with your knowledgeable guide and learn more about the flora as well as the importance of the gardens in Monet's paintings.  Meet with your small group (max. 9 people) and your guide before entering the gardens. First, visit the water garden with the water lilies that inspired many of his paintings and then the 'Clos Normand'. Your guide will point out different species of flowers and features of the garden.

We had the chance to have good weather for this visit of the gardens and the house of Claude Monet. The guide was very friendly and knew the names of the flowers and the painter's life. We had a great visit with her.
