With It, You too can Work Magic on Your Face Like Monet!



Situated amidst the hills, meadows, and winding roads of Normandy, just an hour's drive from Paris, lies a small oasis known as Giverny. This place transports visitors into the garden, home, and world of the Impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926).

Monet settled in Giverny in 1883 and spent over forty years cultivating a lush garden that became as iconic as his renowned artworks. Stepping into his sanctuary, now managed by the Fondation Claude Monet, which welcomes around 500,000 visitors annually, one simultaneously journeys back in time to experience, smell, and see the essence of Monet—the artist, gardener, and father—and his creative spirit. In Giverny, wildflowers blend with herbs, succulents, and cultivated blooms from around the world, creating an overwhelming sense of ambiance. If you find yourself in Paris during the warmer months, Giverny is a must-visit destination.
