The small town of Giverny in France is a little-known, but strikingly beautiful, place.

In fact, it caught the attention of Claude Monet as he passed by in a train.

He rented a house here and soon bought it and built his own garden.

With an artist's expert eye, Monet selected and arranged the plants for his home.

Although the garden is fairly simple, it is an enchanting, colorful and secluded spot.

Many of Monet's famous impressionist paintings are inspired by or modeled on this garden.

The house and garden are open to visitors and art-lovers, as they have been since 1980.
