Dr Gachet's house is a nice hideaway almost outside the village with beautiful gardens and a small exposition inside the house. It's really charming.

Lovely old house was free to go in. Could well imagine van gogh visiting and painting in the garden. Is a little bit on the edge of the village but worth the walk!

Doctor Gachet and his daughter are perhaps most famous for Vincent's role in memorializing them as well as their kindness towards him, and their home served as a haven for an impressive array of French artists beyond Van Gogh himself. His merits as a healer were less profound than his impressive fine eye for many great works yet unrecognized for their creativity in the latter stages of the nineteenth century.

One gets a feel for Vincent and his fellow artisans as well as an intimate view of the everyday life of a country doctor at the time. Both inside and outside, the Gachet family home is a little jewel well worth a visit. The experience balances nicely the role of educational small museum allowing an insightful reflection upon an intimate bit of cultural history.

The real reason to visit here is that this was the home of Vincent's doctor and he did paint some scenes from here. The house and grounds are not remarkable in any respect. They do offer insight into the lifestyle of people of Dr Gachet's station at that time and , once again one must consider the Vincent aspect

with its connection to Van Gogh this is an interesting small house to visit if you are in Auvers for the day. We went in whilst following the walk round town seeing where all the well known pictures were painted and it costs very little so worth the detour. Nice small garden too
