Description Amenities In the area Reviews
Set in the Parc Naturel Régional du Vexin, known for its great natural beauty, this charming and comfortable home offers peace and quiet less than 40 minutes from Paris. The house is located on the outskirts of the lovely village of Auvers-sur-Oise, historic home to many great painters, including Van Gogh, Cézanne, Rousseau and Pissarro. Looking out to the river Oise and private surrounding woods, guests will feel welcome and relaxed in this modest rental home.

“Maison d’Auvers" has a two-story floor plan with an open main level that includes an enclosed veranda with walls of windows on three sides and expansive views to the valley below. The house is handsomely updated throughout with tile floors, original exposed wood beams, and scenic views from the large windows. The décor is warm and casual, with antique furnishings and reproductions of the great "tableaux" for which the area is known. There are a variety of seating areas including the living room with a double sofa bed and colorful curtains that can be drawn at night to create privacy for sleeping. The well-equipped American style kitchen features an eating bar with stools, a tile backsplash, refrigerator with freezer, a four burner electric and gas stove with full oven, dishwasher, microwave, and plenty of kitchen supplies and cookware. Dining area next to the kitchen has a large table. Through French doors, the glassed veranda has another smaller table where you can enjoy meals with the feeling of dining among the treetops.

Up the wooden staircase near the kitchen are the two bedrooms. The master bedroom overlooks the valley below and is furnished with a comfortable double bed plus an additional folding single bed. In the second bedroom there are two single beds. The spacious bathroom on this floor has a deep bathtub, sink and closet. Across the hall, there is a separate WC in between the two bedrooms.

The charming historically preserved village of Auvers-sur-Oise, a ten minute drive from the house, is distinguished by its 12th century church Notre Dame d’Auvers, made famous by Van Gogh’s painting. The church’s tower is easily seen from a distance and can be used as landmark to keep one’s bearings while taking a walking or cycling tour. It features Roman and Gothic architecture, impressive stained glass windows, and a replica of Van Gogh’s famous painting of this church done in stone and glass. Everything in the town related to Vincent Van Gogh is well marked; Cezanne, Rousseau and Pissaro also painted many scenes here. The Auberge Ravoux, where Van Gogh spent the last months of his life, has a small museum where you can see the room where he stayed in 1890. The restored Chateau of Auvers-sur-Oise features exhibits about the Impressionist painters. The Absinthe Museum is also an interesting side visit; the famous liqueur may be purchased here under its true name.

The neighboring town of L’Isle d’Adam is also worth a visit. Here you can stroll along its avenues, laid out by Le Nôtre, the architect who designed the Versailles gardens. There is an interesting 16th century church and bridge. 

It is also easy to access an abundance of natural beauty in the regional Parc Natural Régional du Vexin with its miles of well-marked hiking trails. Other leisure activities include canoeing, golfing and horseback riding.  All this will enhance your stay at “Maison d’Auvers” which is located in a pleasant residential neighborhood of Auvers-sur-Oise.  There are several excellent restaurants within half a mile of the house.
