Wandering artists and memorable places

By settling in the Val d’Oise, artists have immortalized places which have now been transformed. You can feel the places by individual discovery or with guided tours.

In Auvers-sur-Oise, come and discover the places where Van Gogh’s last masterworks were painted, especially ‘the wheat field with ravens’. In Montmorency, come and live Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s thrilling moments of his life. In Mériel, enjoy some moments of Jean Gabin’s. With or without guided tours you will have the opportunity to discover some key moments of the men and women who lived there.
