And what to see when you get there?
There's the home of Dr. Gachet whose portrait by Van Gogh you probably know.
Views that inspired Cezanne which haven't changed too much since his day
The tiny room where Van Gogh lived during the last days of his life
A museum dedicated to absinthe, also known as the green fairy.
And of course there's the church immortalized by Van Gogh and the cemetery where you'll find his grave and that of his brother Theo. I didn't take any pictures of those on this most recent trip but you can go back in time with me and see them here. We didn't make it to the Daubigny museum nor to the chateau except to have an incredible picnic (yes, they actually let you sit on the grass!)
Art, history, country air, good friends, good food, and champagne. Now there's a combo that's hard to beat.
