Average House but great Story
Mar 2020
The house was average but the story of the residence was amazing as it was a love story. The flowers in front of the house was amazing.
Worth a visit.

Remarkable house
Jan 2020
Love story, family honor, and a movie made of the details. The home's decor is extraordinary. Don't miss it!

There isn't much to see

Random old furniture inside, no obvious connection between things ... my wife liked the old TV set from the 1960s ...

Interesting glimpse into the past
Jan 2020 • Solo
Famous for its film role and history, it is a good look into old Franco Chinese architecture but gets busy with tour groups which can spoil your photo opps.

nice, but...
Dec 2019
a nice old house, rather run down outside, and commercialized inside, with staff rather pushy then helpful. but the house has some nice stories to tell, and inside it is beautiful. so when in Sa Dec, it is definitely worth to come by.

INTERESTING IF YOU'VE READ THE BOOK
Dec 2019
The house is the setting of Graham Greene's The Quiet American. It was part of a Viking river cruise but, as I hadn't read the book or seen the film, it had little interest for me.

INTERESTING LOVE STORY BACKGROUND!!!!!!!
Nov 2019
Worth a visit for those who like a love story & recall the novel L'AMANT by Marguerite Duras.The house is interesting & the pictures & interior decor are quite beautiful.History
is being preserved here & that has to be worth something in this day & age.The whole story was recounted to us by a local guide as well as photos being explained.

Nice house to see
Oct 2019
We watched the movie The Lover-I don't recommend it. This house was not in the movie. The novel was based from this house. It's very ornate. You don't get to see very much of it. Not a must do.

Interesting walk through market to house
Oct 2019
Our guide wanted to show us the house that inspired the Frenchman Author Marguerite Duras novel L’Amant (The lover). From outside it looks an impressive building in need of a good jet wash or come loving care! We were meet by the owner who invited us into the house to have some tea with him. While the ladies offered our drinks around our guide translated Mr Thuy Le history of the house and the connection with the book. Afterwards we were permitted to walk around by ourselves. There was some impressive furniture but not much else.
