Chateau du Bosc, Occitanie

(4.8/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
Explore the 15th-century Chateau du Bosc, the family home of painter Toulouse Lautrec. Once a feudal fortress, the structure was renovated in the 19th century. The artist spent a large amount of time in these halls after a crippling accident at the age of 15 in which he broke both of his legs. Despite the handicap, Lautrec's elders encouraged him to develop his skills, and so the young man started drawing. Today, you can take a guided tour of the reception rooms and bedroom, as well as a family museum with a wall of Lautrec's works.

  • Quite isolated from the main roads, this castle to the long history housed youth of the famous painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec who came back then in the summer periods. Many objects and antique furniture that belonged to the noble family are preserved. Also personal items of the painter, photography time, tables and moving drawings or sketches of his hand. It takes an hour for the visit enjoyable and full of anecdotes. Definitely worth a visit.

  • Lovely home where we discover the intimacy of the young Lautrec, parts are nicely furnished and it is discovered that the family had artistic gifts. Mischievous child, he caricaturait on his family. We find his toys in his room. We also see his bike that his mother had been made specially for him. Sketches on the walls are moving and need to be better protected. Our young guide made us discover a Lautrec we didn't know. The tour is free, and a small metal bucket allows to leave his mite. Essential visit after visiting the Museum of Albi. The road of the Bosc is very well indicated.
