Owner description: Honore de Balzac was one of the great writers of the first half of the 19th century. Throughout his life, he remained faithful to his native soil, Touraine. From 1825 to 1848, he paid regular visits to Jean Margonne, a friend of his parents, at Chateau de Sache. There, far removed from the bustle of Parisian life and his financial worries, the writer found the silence and austerity that enabled him to work between twelve and sixteen hours a day. Le Pere Goriot, Louis Lambert, Cesar Birotteau and Illusions Perdues were all partly written there. Sache also served as a source of inspiration for Balzac, who set his novel Le Lys dans la Vallee in the idyllic surroundings of the Indre Valley.
