Van Gogh was a fan of Olive trees. Yes, that’s right. He painted at least 18 paintings of olive trees, mostly in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in 1889. The meaning of this subject for Vincent Van Gogh is underline the relation between man and nature, both connecting with the divine power.

On the heels of Van Gogh’s work, in Provence you can enjoy the “path of olive tree”, a tour lasting 50 km throught the inspiration of Vincent Van Gogh.
We are very sorry that Vincent Van Gogh couldn’t visit Villa Ghetta Country House and its olive trees when he was alive… he would have found significant differences about trees, climate, vegetation. I wonder about 2 different painting: Apulia olive trees and Provencal olive tree.

Enjoy our trees and our oli in “Villa Ghetta Country House rooms, camping & restaurant”.
