Van Gogh's house, located in Auvers-sur-Oise (Val-d'Oise), has finally reopened its doors.

After two years of closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Auberge Ravoux is finally ready to welcome the public again, reports

La Gazette du Val-d'Oise


This Wednesday, the first day of opening saw the arrival of no less than 77 tourists, including around twenty foreign students.

"We missed seeing life again in this place," said a manager of the painter's house.

This proves that Auvers still arouses international interest.


No restaurant yet

Some tourists, especially those from Asia, are missing because of the war in Ukraine.

But the others are there to enjoy the house, the shop and the guided tours organized in the place.

The only downside to this good news: the hostel restaurant could not reopen due to lack of staff.

The management of Van Gogh's house hopes to remedy this problem very quickly to offer visitors again something to eat before or after their visit.
