Claude Monet’s Garden at Giverny, France

Claude Monet's Garden at Giverny, France

One of the world’s most beautiful gardens, Monet’s Garden in France. The garden was property of Oscar-Claude Monet, a founder of French Impressionist painting. Monet’s gardens are like his paintings — brightly colored patches that are messy but balanced. Flowers were his brushstrokes, a bit untamed and slapdash, but part of a carefully composed design. The painter lived at his house in the French countryside for 43 years, carefully cultivating his flower gardens and water garden. The grounds and house are open to visitors April through October. Tour the property, snap photos of the famous water lilies and visit the nearby Musee des Impressionnismes while you’re there. This garden is truly owns a spectacular place in list of beautiful gardens.
