Auberge Ravoux alias Van Gogh's house
Auberge Ravoux, also known as the House of Van Gogh, may feel like a film set with its quaint, white-shuttered façade and original sign, but here, everything is authentic. The only place Van Gogh lived that remains preserved in its original state, this convivial inn in Auvers-sur-Oise, 30 km from Paris, has remained largely unchanged since 1876 – allowing visitors to immerse themselves in an authentic, late 19th-century atmosphere.
It was here that Van Gogh stayed when he arrived in Auvers-sur-Oise in 1890, on his return from the south of France where he had been interned in a mental asylum. Time appears to stand still in attic room number 5; the little space resounding with the spirit of its famous guest. The painter produced more than 80 works here over the last 70 days of his life. More than a simple excursion, for many this visit takes on the quality of a pilgrimage.
In the next room, a film retraces the artist’s stay in Auvers through his canvases, extracts from his letters, and photographs from the era.
And on the ground floor, the dining room, with its warm and authentic atmosphere, welcomes guests from all over the world. This restaurant has remained unchanged since Van Gogh's time, with its waxed oak furniture, wine rack and linen tea towels, like a suspended time. The menu has been modernised under the leadership of Anthony Zabay, offering cheese and charcuterie boards, simple and traditional products, always wonderfully accompanied by the sommelier's choices.
