Fall In Love With The Genius Of Monet At His Givenchy Gardens.

Genius is a word bandied around too much nowadays, but not only was Claude Monet one 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…

And now we invite you to Monet’s lovingly restored garden at Givenchy to walk amongst his beloved poppies, lupins and peonies. Where arched bridges, painted an acid apple green, are festooned with wisteria and willows weeps over waterlilies as your favourite Monet paintings spring to life before your very eyes.

What's The Schedule Look Like?

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

You’ll stay in The Château de Montvillargenne, a 19th-century chateau which once belonged to the Rothschild family. From there, you can visit the Château de Chantilly, with its extensive collection of fine art and gardens designed by Le Nôtre and the nearby enchanting market town of Senlis.

These four days will make sure you never call anyone on Britain’s Got Talent a genius ever again!
