Fall in Love with the Genius Of Monet in Givenchy

Genius is a word bandied around too much nowadays, but the epithet "the genius of Monet" is a well deserved moniker.

Born in 1840, Claude Monet, was of the founding fathers of Impressionism, he turned his weakness into his biggest strength. Scientists and art historians now believe cataracts on both eyes created his much loved blurry style. But sacré bleu! One cataract does not detract from one of the greatest contributions to the art world in the history of all art ever, non! 

So now we invite you to marvel at the genius of Monet with a visit to the man himself's lovingly restored garden at Givenchy.

Givenchy s a magical world where arched bridges, painted an acid-apple green, are festooned with wisteria and willows weep over waterlilies. Your favourite impressionist paintings really will spring to life before your very eyes as you walk amongst Claude's beloved poppies, lupins and peonies.

What's The Schedule Look Like?

This three-day holiday will make you fall in love with the French Impressionistic style, France itself and the air-kissing French population as you visit the Musée de l'Orangerie  in Paris to see Monet’s breathtaking, 200 meter long murals, Les Nymphã as de, which he painted as The Great War rumbled on around him. Try telling us the man’s not a genius after seeing this!
