MUSEE BALZAC, CHATEAU DE SACHE

SACHE - 37
from 6€ /pers.

Monument

A Touraine native, Honoré de Balzac stayed in a friend's castle from 1830 to 1837, in Saché, in the Indre valley. Built in the Middle Ages and remodelled during the Renaissance, it became a comfortable residence in the 19th century, surrounded by a garden planted with trees. The sitting room still has its original wallpaper, and the little room where the prolific writer wrote part of Père Goriot and the beginning of Illusions perdues is a touching surprise.

Museum

Castle built in the Middle Ages, reworked in the Renaissance period and converted into an aristocratic manor-house in the 19th century. A refuge for Balzac, who invented the Comédie Humaine and wrote his masterpieces here. There are 10 rooms, including the caricature room, the original manuscripts room, the printing workshop, Balzac's chamber, and a room devoted to Rodin's Balzac. The 3-hectare park with lilies, peonies, delphiniums and majestic trees is a very romantic place. A video completes this authentic tour.
