France: Giverny (Visiting Monet’s House)


Walking through Giverny

Because Versailles is closed on Mondays and I already booked the French Open for Tuesday,  we needed to find something to do inbetween. We’re lucky enough to have all been to Paris before, so I did some research for possible day trips and found out that Giverny is not too far away (1 hour).

Giverny is a beautiful town in Normandy most famous for being home to the impressionist painter Claude Monet. I was so excited about seeing the water lilies and green bridge in person! May was such a perfect month to visit because all of the flowers were in blossom. I cannot recommend enough!

*Just a warning – many flower photos ahead!


Even spotted a cow while walking into town!



Restaurant La Musardière Crêperie



Lunch in the garden



Normandy is famous for its cider, so we dried Le Verger de Giverny

Excited to eat!



Koen, Dad and I all ordered the Farmer’s Galette: ham, mushroms, cheese, garlic, crème fraîche, and egg



Mom ordered the Normandy Galette: apples, camembert, and calvados




Koen chose his shirt very carefully for our visit to the garden 🙂
