Description

Departure by coach in the company of your hostess for a visit to the Château d'Auvers-sur-Oise. An animated tour will take you on a "journey back to the time of the Impressionists” on the tracks of the Master Painters who left their mark on the town's history including Daubigny, Pissarro, Cézanne, Monet, and Van Gogh. An audio tour will guide you through the various rooms of the Château where you'll get a grasp of life in Paris in the 19th century thanks to the reconstructed décor and atmospheres reminiscent of the Impressionists' favorite themes.
There are more than 500 paintings set to motion, visual and sound effects, popular music and songs of the time, extracts from old films, photo archives, clothing and other objects from that period. The Château also houses temporary exhibitions, a restaurant with a terrace for hot days, a tree-filled park and French formal gardens, cultural and festive events, floral art and painting workshops. Towards the end of your tour, you'll get a better understanding of the role of Impressionism in Art history by watching the film "The Seekers of Light”. We'll return on board by coach at the end of the morning.
