Overview

Defeated in the presidential elections of 1919, "Pere la Victoire" retired from political life. Between the ocean and his rented fisherman’s house, Georges Clemenceau, a close friend of Claude Monet, fulfilled the wager to create an Impressionist garden on the dunes. The house has been preserved in the same state as it was at the time the so-called "Tigre" died. Open: > 15th May to 15th September: from 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. > 16th September to 14th May: from 10 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. Last admission 1 hour before closing time. Closed: > Mondays from 16th September to 14th May. Admission fees: Adults : 5,50 €; Concessions (18 to 25) = 4 €; Free admission: minors under 18*; Free admission: 18-25 years old* (citizens of one of the 27 countries of the EU or are non-European permanent residents of France) * excluding school groups

We visited on a Sunday morning and went round the house independently but with a very detailed guide in (excellent)English and then were free to wander round the gardens. The attraction is that Monet helped design the garden but don't expect a mini-Giverny. It is...More

Interesting tour of the cottage, it had a lovely feel. I was disappointed in the garden, it seemed a little neglected (August visit). The views across the garden to the sea were wonderful, well worth a visit just for that. A peaceful spot.

Found this place just by chance when out for a walk. Situated right on the sea front. The house is worth a wander round with lots of explanations and pictures. Though the highlight for us was definitely the garden which was overlooking the sea, well...More
