Maison et Jardin de Georges Clemenceau
St. Vincent-sur-Jard. Tel 02 51 33 40 32
just before the signing of the Treaty de Versailles, Georges Clemenceau,
then 78, decided to retire to his estate in the Vendée. In between the
Atlantic and the fishermen’s cottage which he rented, Georges
Clemenceau, the "father of Victory" and close friend of painter Claude
Monet, took up and completed the challenge of creating an
"impressionist" garden in the dunes. The house remains as it was on his
death in 1929 with his furniture and personal effects.
The remarkable gardens created by the "tiger" with the help of his friend Monet were fully restored in 2006
This is a place for meditation and writing, and it was here facing the
ocean that Clemenceau, who was elected by acclamation to the French
Academy in 1918, went back over the events of his remarkable life and
wrote several books.
