  • I read Pierre Loti in my teens with happiness. I read it regularly always with the same pleasure. I came to visit the home of Loti there is very long and I stayed? still amazed by this place so special and so enchanting. I am extremely sad and disappointed to discover that such a cultural heritage could threaten ruin. How did we get to here? He must save this place for pass it on and enrich its singularity.
