Auvers is a tiny village, population approximately 6,900 (now 6,901), about 16 miles northwest of Paris, a 50 minute train ride if you hit your connections right. Of course, I don’t know all this upon landing at CDG with two suitcases and two cats. What I do know: It’s close to Paris, Van Gogh died here. A bunch of impressionists painted here. The rent is $700 a month. That’s good enough for me.
