Claude Monet's house in Giverny is absolutely gorgeous. Visit when the garden is in bloom. I visited in late September and was pleasantly surprised to see the garden in full bloom. It was easy to get to Giverny from Paris by taking the train and then transferring on the bus (a couple minute ride) to Monet's house. Don't forget to "composter le billet" i.e, get your train ticket stamped before you get on the train. There will be a little machine at the beginning of the track for you to insert your ticket. If you don't, you could be liable for a huge fine if they check your ticket. At the train station in Giverny, transfer to the bus (easy to find and follow the other tourists). When you step off the bus it is like stepping into one of Monet's paintings. This is my favorite day trip from Paris and I always recommend it over Versaille.
