  • Awesome museum in and around the house of Robert Tatin, in and on which he worked for more than 20 years, until his death. Very impressive sculpture and paintings, but the house itself with its decorations and walkway of giants are even more superb. Even if you don't like or know much about art, this eclectic mix of a myriad of styles, techniques and materials is bound to capture your attention and feed your imagination. The introduction by the guide (in French only) was very helpful and informative to provide some background, especially on the symbolism in Tatins art. There are also works of contemporary modern artists exposed on the domain, as well as an apple orchard.
  • Spent an interesting few hours here at this peaceful place where there's plenty to wonder at. I did the tour of the house and the guide was very good with excellent English.
