Madame de Sévigné

Clair de la Plume © Alain MAIGRE

Jean-Luc Valadeu, the happy owner, kept watch over the most minor details: the majority of the furniture and ornaments were bargain-hunted in antique dealers and second-hand boutiques around the region. Mountains of books, found throughout the house, were selected for both their rapport with Madame de Sévigné’s epistolary talent and their literary quality. And you do feel as if they have been actually read…As for the table decor, these pieces are mostly French-made: the crockery was tailor-made by a Limoges porcelain expert; the glassware, silverware and linen are the work of French ateliers.
