We entered the gardens via the Gift shop. Then a short walk to the House. The light in the house was perfect in all the rooms we went in. The studio had very large windows to let in more light and Monet had had his bedroom windows, which were directly above his studio, enlarged as well. The whole house was enchanting.
Despite there being hoards of other visitors, I found I could, on the whole, ignore them and was able to 'see' the house as it had been when Money lived there. Sandy, though, has visited a few times in the past and was disappointed at how commercial it now is. We were lucky to have visited on a bright and sunny day, and the light was amazing. I could easily see why Monet loved it so.
