A thoroughly enjoyable insight in the life and achievements of a truly great man and elder statesman. A lovely and peaceful location with the garden (re)-designed by and with the man's close friend Claude Monet. Well worth a wander around.

Enjoyable but brief visit to the house and gardens. The house is full of interesting artifacts and there is a good short film from 1920s about the man. The garden is a very small wild garden showing what can be done by cultivation on the...More

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

Wanted to see this as we were going to see Monet's garden at Giverney, and knew that Clemenceau had corresponded with Monet about his plans for the garden in the dunes. And, as I had both French and European history from school I knew a...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
