Maison de Van Gogh (Van Gogh House)
Maison de Van Gogh (Van Gogh House) Review
Opposite the town hall, the Auberge Ravoux, the inn where Van Gogh stayed, is now the Maison de Van Gogh. The inn opened in 1876 and owes its name to Arthur Ravoux, the landlord from 1889 to 1891. He had seven lodgers in all, including the minor Dutch painter Anton Hirsching, and they paid 3.50 francs for board and lodging—cheaper than the other inns in Auvers, where 6 francs was the going rate. A dingy staircase leads up to the tiny, spartan, wood-floor attic where Van Gogh stored some of modern art's most famous pictures under his bed. A short film retraces Van Gogh's time at Auvers, and there's a well-stocked souvenir shop. Stop for a drink or for lunch in the ground-floor restaurant.
