What people are saying about Musée des Impressionnismes
Had an absolute wonderful day even though it was 39 degrees centigrade! The area where Monet's 'water lily pond' is has garden seats to sit and rest in the shade. It is very tranquil and relaxing despite the crowds of people milling about. The garden has an abundance of flowers(July) and are well tended. Monet's House is very interesting to look through. It is also a must to visit the Church where Monet is buried. It would be a 15 to 20 minute walk from Monet's House. The church is of Romanesque origin. The oldest part, the semi circular apse was built at the beginning of the 11th century and the rest built around 15th century onwards. My tour included lunch at a lovely french restaurant behind Monets' house and afternoon tea at another cafe. The food was excellent. Thoroughly recommend this tour. A day well spent. If you only want to visit Monet's house, a half day tour would be adequate.
I so enjoyed this experience. I will forever treasure my time in Monet's studio, his gardens, and the village there. Make sure to book the full day tour and experience it on your own, that way you can make your way around on your own time. The food at the restaurant was delicious, I had the vegetable soup, the fish, and the apple tart with hot tea and water to drink, all included in the all day tour. I also got a treat and more tea later in the day, the muffin was delicious. I came back with visions of new paintings to be created, a full belly, and many wonderful memories! A highlight of my trip to Paris.
I loved visiting the gardens and then spending time enjoying the town. I absolutely believe this venue deserves a full day. I would like to recommend a later time for lunch. (We were on the full day trip which included lunch and a snack.) We both would have liked more time to spend exploring the gardens and the house. Since the gardens do not permit re-entry, we were rushed trying to make the 12 o'clock lunch. Another option would be simply a full day trip that either did not include lunch or a span of time when one could go to lunch. BTW, the lunch was excellent.
Perfect!!! Our tour guide was amazing! Georgia was very enganging, she definitely knows a lot and loves being a tour guide. She made the extra effort to make sure everyone enjoyed the day and I could tell she cared for each one of us. The best tour guide I’ve ever had in Europe!! And Monet’s house and garden was beautiful!!
Georgia was the most amazing, passionate and knowledgeable guide, her presentations on Monet made the day so enjoyable. Despite a record breaking heat wave in Paris, everyone went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves. I would highly recommend
