Giverny is a commune in Eure department, northern France. Giverny is best known as the location of garden and home of Claude Monet. It has an area of 6.46 km2 (2.49 ml2) and a population of around 500 inhabitants.
Giverny is situated on the "right bank" of River Seine where river Epte meets Seine. The village lies 80 kilometers (50 miles) from Paris, slightly north and west, in the old province of Normandy. Claude Monet noticed Giverny while looking out of the train window and made up his mind to move there. He rented a house along with the area surrounding it. He had enough money to buy it in 1890 and set out to create magnificent gardens that he wished to paint. Some of Monet's most famous paintings were of the garden in Giverny.
Claude Monet's property, left by his son to Academie des Beaux-Arts in 1966, became a Museum and opened to public visit in 1980 following the completion of restoration work: the vast Nymphea's studio was restored, the collection of Japanese engravings was exhibited in several rooms, the gardens were replanted. Monet's house became a popular tourist attraction, particularly in the summer during the flowers' bloom.
The other main attraction of Giverny is the Museum of Impressionism Giverny, which is dedicated to impressionism's history and the continuation in Giverny art colony and along Seine's valley. Hotel Baudy was the center of artistic life in Giverny heyday. It is now still a cafe and restaurant.
