  • Charming Museum, which preserves the old charm of small town where Proust spent his summer vacation. The furniture is of time, although in the family there is a few things, but what matters to a proustiano is the ambience, the atmosphere of the home and it is intact. Attention to times in the winter are very restricted. The best way to get there is by train, as was then the boy Proust. .
