Description

The journey begins with the discovery of the charming village of Auvers sur Oise where Vincent Van Gogh spent the last 100 days of his life. He painted approximately 70 works during his time there. To create the ambiance, on the way from Paris to Auvers, your driver-guide will provide you with a brief and colorful introduction to Van Gogh's life and work.

Upon your arrival in Auvers, you will visit the house of Doctor Gachet, a passionate art collector and dear friend of Van Gogh, "immortalized" by him several times. Following a walk through the main street of the village, you will discover the "Auberge Ravoux", Van Gogh's last residence. To round of the visit, there will be a stop at the church of Auvers, made famous by Van Gogh's painting, before driving to the cemetery of Auvers to pay a tribute to Theo and Vincent Van Gogh's final resting place.

On the way back from Auvers to Giverny, stop for lunch at a 250-year-old watermill. Before arriving at Giverny, the driver-guide will provide a brief introduction of Monet's life and work, followed by a guided visit of Monet's house in Giverny, the formal enclosed Norman Garden and the Water Garden with the famous pond and Japanese Bridge.

Drive back to Paris along the "Route des Cretes" where the exceptional panorama overlooking the Seine Valley unfolds before you. You will discover a 10th century watch-tower built at the time of the Viking Invasion, the 12th century chateau of La Roche Guyon that served as the headquarters of General Erwin Rommel during World War II - and a stop at the village of Vetheuil where Claude Monet lived for 3 years.

The tour will end with cider and goat cheese tasting at a local farm or cake and coffee.
