GIVERNY - CLAUDE MONET'S GARDENS

 

Giverny lies 80 km (50 mi) from Paris, in Normandy.

The village  has seen a boom in tourism since the restoration of Monet's house and gardens. Monet first rented the famous house then bought it in 1890 when he had enough money to create the fantastic gardens he wanted to paint. 
Several of his most famous paintings 
were of his garden with climbing plants and the water garden with the Japanese bridge, the pond with the water lilies, ...
Monet lived in the house from 1883 until he passed away in 1926.
The other major attraction is the Museum of Impressionism Giverny, dedicated to the history of impressionism ...

CHÂTEAU DE FONTAINEBLEAU

 

The Palace of Fontainebleau (UNESCO World Heritage Site) is located 55 kilometers (34 miles) southeast of Paris, and is one of the largest French royal châteaux. The castle then château was the residence of French kings from Louis VII through Napoleon III. 
Emperor Napoleon I abdicated there before being exiled. He wrote “…the true residence of Kings, the house of the centuries. Perhaps it was not a rigorously architectural palace, but it was certainly a place of residence well thought out and perfectly suitable. It was certainly the most comfortable and happily situated palace in Europe.”
Today it is a national museum.

VAUX-LE-VICOMTE

The Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte is located 55 kilometers (34 mi) of Paris. It was constructed from 1658 to 1661 for Nicolas Fouquet, the superintendent of finances of Louis XIV. At Vaux-le-Vicomte, the three men would would build Versailles later on (architect Louis Le Vau, landscape architect André le Nôtre and painter-decorator Charles Le Brun) worked together on a large-scale project for the first time. This co-operation was the beginning of the "Louis XIV style" combining architecture, interior design and landscape design.
The famous opening party in 1661 was too impressive and the king believed that such magnificence was funded by the misappropriation of public funds.
Fouquet was arrested and imprisoned for life and his wife exiled.
