The pretty town of Auvers-sur-Oise is about an hour north of Paris and is most famous for being van Gogh’s last residence before his death. We ate lunch at the Auberge Ravoux, where van Gogh lived for about two months, in the original common room.
Lunch was good, but the cheese plate was outstanding. A ripe Brie, deliciously balanced Comté (paired with a jelly made from wild red poppies!), a salty Salers, and the creamy Roquefort were individually excellent. Collectively, they provided a perfect end to the meal.
