We did a small group tour only 8 people. Loved it. Arrived before most of the large tour groups, and then visited the church and grave with lots of commentary about Monet and his life. We loved the gardens and was definitely one of our...More

We stopped here for a few hours on our way to Mont. St. Michel. I am glad we did. The gardens are beautiful and you get to see Monet's inspiration for his Lillies painting. The house is charming and well cared for. A must see....More

Yes it is crowded and Yes some of the crowd is rude -- like annoyingly rude... all in an effort to get a photograph of every little thing. BUT maybe for a second or two you will find a moment that is yours and if...More

Getting to the Gardens posed no problem but a bit of a mix-up with the guide and bus company caused us a substantial delay in getting into the gardens. Once in the weather had a big influence on the pleasure as fairly continuous heavy rain...More

Hi There is a café literally next door to the house where you can get a coffee, drink, or something to eat. We stopped for a coffee there on our visit, prices were average. Hope this helps. Regards Charles
