Follow in the actual footsteps of Vincent van Gogh and Margot Begemann in Salon Nune Ville: the family home of Margot, the woman with whom Vincent experienced a dramatic love affair. You can imagine you are back in the 19th century in this characteristic old villa. This, combined with the enthusiasm of its owner and art historian Jacqueline, means you will experience the most personal Van Gogh stories. “By sheer accident we discovered this precious jewel […] in hindsight we think that our visit to Salon Nune Ville was the highlight of our day,” commented an American tourist who had combined his visit to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam with a visit to Nuenen. The museum also houses an attic where a Jewish boy was hidden during the Second World War. “…it also tells a captivating story about sadness, perseverance and heroism. It’s right there in front of you, a unique place of history.

Historical sensation
Built for the Begemann family in 1874, the villa also contains an art salon with paintings by Van Gogh’s friends. The old furniture and other objects from Van Gogh’s time each tell their own story. Something that clearly impressed Mia from the Dutch town of Roermond:  “How people lived and what they experienced is still visible and above all tangible in the beautiful interior. Your loving story keeps them alive. It touched me deeply, I’m speechless. So unique!”

Nuenen and Van Gogh
Van Gogh enthusiasts can easily make their way to Nuenen, which is just ten minutes by car from Eindhoven, and which also has a good bus service. A visit to Salon Nune Ville makes a perfect combination with one of the other Van Gogh locations and with the walking and cycling routes in the immediate vicinity. Its link with the Second World War means that guided tours often combine this with a visit to the Wings of Freedom Museum, about 12 kilometres away in the town of Best.
