A frenchic place to visit: Giverny

Giverny is a small village located in the beautiful area of Normandy and it is so charming! It is very well-known because of Monet who lived there. Many other impressionist artists were attracted by the landscapes and the atmosphere as well. You can visit the property of Monet by stepping into the colourful house and by wandering around the magnificent gardens.
