  • More than a Museum, it is here the last home of Renoir, who spent the end of his life. The visit of the area of the Colettes has been facilitated and widely explained thanks to the intervention of Cagnes tourist office guide. The three euros costs this visit are largely justified and to situate in time and in space the living standards for Renoir, his wife, his children and his entourage in his stay here. The difficulties related to his illness, his taste for nature and painting course, activities of his relatives in this property, everything is bright with the explanations of the guide. A tip: don't leave school without buying at the bookstore the book of Jean Renoir, the son of filmmaker entitled Pierre Auguste Renoir, my father. You will discover in a very pure style sensations of a witness of the life of Renoir at the heart of the Impressionist movement and social ascension of this character who remained humble in his life.

  • The workshop of the master was drained of emotions, there is not much. No more soulless since the work of 2013, the too big (the last home of Renoir) villa houses 14 paintings of the master spread in sanitized this museum rooms. However we can marvel at the magnificent park of the domain of collettes overlooking Cagnes upward but for the Museum, you can book a guided tour, only way to really immerse yourself in the emotion of the place and works (not audio-guide on) place).

  • Very nice visit in winter yet. The House of an artist teaches us always more about his life and his tastes... Very nice property. The construction is a bit austere outdoors. Not really in the spirit of the Côte d'Azur. It was a sometimes uncomfortable heat in some rooms heated by former (central) heating cast-iron. We asked an intelligence to a woman guide inside, she taught us many details of the life of the painter. The sculptures are very beautiful. It really lacks the works of the island of the Impressionists (Chatou), which are my favorite.

  • The small mansion is a great one, the view from the balcony amazing. The garden is great for a walk and beside you can see the amazing art created by Renoir.
  • Be prepare that Renoir pictures are in galleries not here. The house and garden is beautiful and quiet peaceful place in area in Core d'Azure.
  • Small museum with some pieces, but a great sense of place... it feels like being in a Renoir painting. Well documented in both French and English, and easily worth an hour of your time. Hard to get to by foot, however- narrow road with no sidewalks.
  • This is an enormous, gorgeous home by any standards, and has been lovingly maintained and restored. There is a lift in the house, good as there are three stories. The views are wonderful, and many times you can look out over the landscape and see exactly what he was painting. The grounds have been thoughtfully maintained, with statuary in the gardens. His work with other painters is highlighted, and some of their work, relevant to Renoir's home, work, and family life is on display here as well. This is a must for anyone who loves Renoir and Impressionism. Buy the ticket with the entrance to the Grimaldi and save money.
  • It was really great to visit the house'm of a great artist and the visuals helped set the scene
