Extraordinary wallpapers in the rooms of the Castle. See if you're in the area.

Architecturally it is not very significant, deserves to be visited only as part of a tour of castles being close to Azay Le Rideau. But overall it's a romantic and relaxing place that brings serenity and offers a glimpse of Balzac and what inspired him. The staff is very friendly and professional.
Ernest cor-de-buyin a building of type mansion the BALZAC Museum shines by the sobriety of its architecture, gardens are a bit abandoned or not enough set value. However the Interior is a beautiful Tapestry and textile furniture everything is very elegant.
Stéphane LarrocheSmall museum with interesting pieces. A bit small it has quickly made the turn. Not put garden in value damage.
Dorangeville fredA very nice Museum. What struck me the most is the reconstitution of what would be the many home described in the books of Balzac. Throughout the tour we are plunged into the iconic piece of Balzac as the antique dealer! In short a good time in this beautiful countered
Eve QuiquetA place where stayed Balzac to discover his sources of inspiration, and his lifestyle. An exciting tour
J & H Logis-Saint-MexmeFor lovers of Balzac, knowing renders you the entire atmosphere of the writer. Bucolic place that inspires.
