Trystorp is a Swedish estate in Lekeberg. To the south of the manor, there is a nature reserve which is open to the public, with a rich fauna and many old oaks.
The estate was established by Biskop Kort Rogge in 1495, who bought land in the area. The Livonian nobleman Henrik von Falkenberg was subsequently awarded Trystorp as a fief. In the 16th century, King Charles IX of Sweden was a frequent guest at Trystorp.
The Falkenberg family owned the estate from 1603 to 1816, when it was sold to publisher N.M. Lindh. His heirs sold the estate to businessman Julius Lindström in 1868. From 1914 to 1918, it was owned by Christopher de Paus. In 1937, it was acquired by Astrid Ziebach de Jonquiéres, whose heirs still own it. It was announced for sale in 2009.References:
Claude Monet lived for forty-three years, from 1883 to 1926, in Giverny. With a passion for gardening as well as for colours, he conceived both his flower garden and water garden as true works of art. Walking through his house and gardens, visitors can still feel the atmosphere which reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionnism and marvel at the floral compositions and nymphéas, his greatest sources of inspiration.
In 1890 Monet had enough money to buy the house and land outright and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his garden in Giverny, famous for its rectangular Clos normand, with archways of climbing plants entwined around colored shrubs, and the water garden, formed by a tributary to the Epte, with the Japanese bridge, the pond with the water lilies, the wisterias and the azaleas.
Today the Monet's Garden is open to the public.
