Claude Monet happened upon the village of Giverny, and he decided to move there in 1883. He first rented a house there before purchasing it a few years later. Elegant simplicity is the best way to describe this little village where Impressionist painters loved to gather. Fleeing the bustle of Paris, they sought out the serenity and slow pace of the countryside to inspire their creativity. Claude Monet, Mary Cassatt, Alfred Sisley, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Auguste Rodin—and from the other side of the Atlantic, Willard Metcalf, Theodore Robinson, William Hart, James Carroll Beckwith, Dawson Dawson-Watson and many others who were dubbed “the Americans of Giverny”—all came to stay in this peaceful village.
Take a seat in one of our comfortable collector cars for a picturesque tour of the countryside on the way to the village of Giverny. You’ll have plenty of time to cross the Haute Vallée de Chevreuse Regional Natural Park before reaching the road of the Impressionists, where you’ll follow in the footsteps of the great painters of the evanescent. Discover the bucolic roads and soothing landscapes of the French countryside. When you arrive in Giverny, savor an exceptional stopover, and lose yourself in the slow pace of life so beloved to these artists, who celebrated the pleasures of life, languor and good cheer.
After a break in this timeless beauty, head for Versailles across the countryside of Yvelines, dotted with palatial castles and authentic villages to admire from your privileged seat in a vintage car.
