“A Humble Home”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

This was THE lovely part of the day in the village.

The stroll down to the house was delightful and very pretty. There are only three rooms to be seen, but the house was a simple pleasure, not one of the grandiose homes normally associated with heads of state, but a family home, not dissimilar to many other family homes. The furnishings were, now, evidently set up for tourism, but contained interesting gifts and tributes to this soldier. The library was the most amazing place in the house and showed what a well-read man he was, with volumes in both French and English covering all manner of subjects.

In this house, you have a glimpse of De Galle, the man: in the nearby museum, you only see De Galle, the national hero. If you have a limited time in this village, choose this house rather than the museum!
