The Blue House of Claude Monet in Giverny, charming house

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,152 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

The Blue House is located in the heart of Giverny, the village of Claude Monet. This house belonged to him. It is surrounded by 1500 m2 of gardens and is just minutes from museums and restaurants. There are 200 m2 of living that were completely renovated in 2016, is furnished with a mix of modern and antique furniture. This home is perfect for couples, solo travelers, business travelers, families. We are at the heart of Giverny but in the quieter part the very touristy part where Impressionist museums and shops are within walking distance are. It's Ideal. The whole house is accessible, so three double bedrooms (one on the ground floor and two on the 1st floor, each with its own bathroom). but it is possible to rent only the ground floor, for travelers who would need only one room (in which case the rental price will be divided by two). the house has three private parking spaces, which is interesting in a highly visited town in the summer. Many travelers also resident in Giverny to visit Paris or Versailles and shelter less, in fact it takes less than an hour by car or train. We speak French, English and Spanish. A cleaning woman living nearby will work overtime on request.

The Blue House of Claude Monet in Giverny, charming house
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

Lovely house, superb location.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in a quiet area of Giverny. The house is obviously a home and full of personal items. Perfect for getting to Monet's garden to beat the rush and for other attractions in the village. Plenty of places to eat within easy walking distance although we also ate in enjoying the garden and well equipped house and kitchen.

Pierre was very helpful even emailing to let us know of events in the area we could be interested in. The three parking spaces made it easy to manage the cars in an area which has a lot of visitors at the height of the season.

Beautiful French Country Home

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about the home that was the home of Monet's vegetable garden. It was expansive, memorable and everything we could have asked for. Pierre Maraval the owner was so considerate as well as accommodating. He even came all the way from Paris early in the morning to meet us at the house, do to our early overseas flight arrival. What a special place. Our daughter was married in the garden of this home in a civil ceremony performed by our son. What a special memory for us. The walk through kitchen opening onto both garden areas with "French" doors and with the country table in the center was our base of operations for so many great dinners, wine and champagne sharing times amongst family and friends. We can't thank Pierre enough for sharing his home with us. It is truly their country home based on all of the personal items in the home. Now that we are back in Michigan we look back at such a memorable time in Giverny. So walkable to the attractions of Giverny as well as a short 2.2km drive to Vernon for all our shopping needs. Hail to Monoprix market.

Gracious and quiet, capture village life

  • 5 of 5

Very much a family home, the Blue House is the weekend retreat of a Parisian artist and his family who share it when they can't be "home." It felt very much like borrowing the home from an acquaintance as it's filled with personal photos, art, and knick-knacks, and even had flowers left on the tables for us. The house is spacious and lovely and we truly enjoyed relaxing in the garden or inside. We actually canceled plans one day to stay and relax more at the house. Being in Giverny after the crowds head back to Paris (which in the summer still leaves you with a lot of daylight to enjoy it) was the highlight of our two weeks in France! The village is so quaint and beautiful!

Beautiful House and Village

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at La Maison Bleue, the house is stylish, bohemian and very artistic. All the rooms are very spacious and clean with plenty of separate wash facilities throughout. It has a lovely authentic feel at the quiet end of this beautiful village and was onced owned by Monet. Perfect as a venue to visit Monet's house and gardens but also we enjoyed it as a venue in itself using it as a base for a weeks holiday. I would highly recommend this property.

We were expecting a really pleasant property but our expectations were exceeded; house, gardens and location were exceptional. The owner, Pierre, went out of his way to ensure that we were welcomed and was a real gentleman. Planning our return.
