  • A discovery of Balzac, its environment and its history beyond the father Goriot... The House is beautifully maintained and the staff, very friendly, gives a lot of explanations. A place to discover.

  • If you go there, go ahead, especially if you like literature. Many objects are put in parallel with his literary life. Worth the effort

  • In love with the human comedy, the castle is a true pilgrimage and a hymn to Balzac if not more than his Paris home. His holiday resort is simple and singular. You will find at any time of the year the sculptures of Rodin in tribute to Balzac, but also his room, his office, or his imagination was at the top. We had the chance to see a temporary exhibition of period furniture, expo made by one of the greatest experts of France for narrated descriptions of Balzac in his many novels such as the father Goriot and others... Don't miss this tour, entry rates are very affordable. This visit was a pure moment of emotion...

  • in 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.

  • Small museum with interesting pieces. A bit small it has quickly made the turn. Not put garden in value damage.

  • A 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
