I had read a book about George Sand and Frederic Chopin's love affair in Valldemosa before going on this trip so it was fabulous to see the location in person. It was surreal wandering through the gardens and rooms knowing that they actually lived there together. The views were beautiful with vineyards below and rose gardens. I imagined seeing the goats she had for milk for her children. It was very romantic. The little town was charming as well.

Interesting to see where the great man lived and worked. Enjoyed reading the letter of Robert Graves giving his take on the relationship between Chopin and Sands. Rooms lacked a feel of having been lived in, very much a museum. The little shaded garden was a delight, with beautiful views.

This museum in cell 4 is in part of the old palace that became a Cartesian monastery in Valldemossa. The area has made much out of their link with Frederic Chopin and George Sand, which is amazing considering that they only stayed there for about 3 months. In the couple of rooms in cell 4 where they stayed are various artefacts like documents related to their stay in 1838-1839, portraits and musical scores etc. The real star of the show is Chopin’s Pleyel piano, one of only two in the world, which he used to compose the Polonaise in C minor, op 40, no. 2 and the Mazurka in E minor, op 41, no 2. He sold the piano before he left the area to a local family and it’s made its way back to where it started in the area. My real favourite area as a gardener though was the pretty little courtyard garden. The information provided here was good but note that this museum is separate to the other museums in the building and costs 4.00€ to visit.

Really enjoyed our visit. The museum may be relatively small but there are some fascinating exhibits and a charming little garden with stunning views.

A bit underwhelming. Lots of items on display but very limited explanation to accompany them. The Chopin piano is there as the centrepiece. Beautiful views from the small garden.
