Colfontaine has a hidden treasure: the Maison Denis, a small workers’ house, the residence of Vincent van Gogh during his years spent in the Borinage. Mons 2015, the Commune of Colfontaine, the Province of Hainaut and a consortium of companies* have combined to instil life into this hitherto neglected cultural heritage property. Soon to become an essential place to visit on the itineraries devoted to the artist’s memory.
