Today, Vincent Van Gogh is one of the most famous post-impressionist painters, but it has not been the case when he was alive. His whole life was filled with ups and downs, and he only sold one painting in his entire life...

After living the Netherlands, England, and Belgium, he moved to France: in Montmartre first, then in Arles, in the south of France, and finally, in the charming village of Auvers-sur-Oise. This nice countryside village is where he spent his last few months, and where he died in July 1890.

This village is now filled with memories of Van Gogh: the cemetery when he is buried, the different areas where he liked to paint, the church that he painted, the bedroom that he rented in the Ravoux inn... There is even a small museum dedicated to absinth, this very strong alcohol nicknamed "the green fairy", that Van Gogh drunk (too much!).

Why do I love leading this tour to Auvers?

"The village of Auvers sur Oise is really a great way to escape from Paris, and enjoy taking your time in the countryside. I like how this place didn't become a "Disneyland" about Vincent Van Gogh, but allows you to discover his personality and his life'. 


Tips for your visit

How to go to Auvers sur Oise from Paris

I would recommend using a private driver to get to Auvers. However, it is possible to get there by train, doing some connections. Please contact me so that I can give you a precise itinerary for your tour. 

Icon disability

This tour is not wheelchair-friendly, due to staircases in the Ravoux house to access the bedroom of Van Gogh, and due to the hilly road to get to the cemetery. If you can't walk much, please contact me so that I can arrange a tour for you.
