This private tour takes you to Giverny and Auvers sur Oise to explore the landmarks associated with Vincent Van Gogh and Claude Monet.
Relax as you drive through the scenic French countryside to Auvers sur Oise. On the way from Paris to Auvers, your driver-guide will provide you with a brief and colourful introduction to Van Gogh’s life and works. Upon your arrival in Auvers, visit the house of Doctor Gachet, a passionate art collector and dear friend of Van Gogh, “immortalised” by him several times.
Following a walk through the main street of the village, see the “Auberge Ravoux”, Van Gogh’s last residence. To round off the visit, stop at the church of Auvers, made famous by Van Gogh’s painting. Drive to the cemetery of Auvers to pay a tribute to Theo and Vincent Van Gogh’s final resting place.
Before arriving at Giverny, the driver-guide will tell you about 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 Crêtes” and see the exceptional panorama overlooking the Seine Valley unfold before you. You can also see a watch-tower of the 10th century built at the time of the Viking Invasion and the 12th-century château of La Roche Guyon - the headquarters of General Erwin Rommel during World War II.
To conclude the visit, stop at the village of Vetheuil where Claude Monet lived for 3 years. On the return journey, there will be a cider and goat cheese tasting at a local farm or cake and coffee.
