Claude Monet noticed the village of Giverny while looking out the window of a train he was riding on. He made up his mind to move there, and rented a house and the area surrounding it until he had earned enough money to buy the house and land himself. Once it was in his possession, he set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. His gardens are full of rare plants that he ordered from all over the world. As you will be able to tell once you arrive, some of his most famous paintings, such as his water lily and Japanese bridge paintings, were of his garden in Giverny.

When he arrived, the house also looked different from what it is today. Monet enlarged it by integrating two sheds at each end and had a balcony built along the façade. He chose the colors himself, the very ones that can be seen today. His first studio was inside the house: this room was later transformed into a drawing room where coffee was served after lunch and where Monet would exhibit his latest paintings. Later, he had a new studio built on the western side of the domain and, in 1916, a third one (now the museum shop) specially built for the large canvasses that he started painting in his later years.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
