Auvers sur Oise

Auvers Sur Oise - On Van Gogh's footstepsHere is a view of Auvers sur Oise, the small town north west of Paris where Van Gogh ended up his life. He shot himself a few hundred yards from this church in a field which can still be seen today.

The old village has not suffered too much from new developments and the inn where the painter used to stay and his room were refurbished very nicely 10 years ago. The ‘Auberge Ravoux’ is now open for tourists and the meals they serve are really nice. I recommend the duck pâté, the mutton stew and the chocolate mousse, three staples of that establishment.

Some of Van Gogh’s watercolours of Auvers can be seen here. (not his best watercolours though, I would rather recommend the following Bridge in Arles)
