When the meal was over, I went down, in spite of the heat, to the meadow-lands for another sight of the Indre and its isles, the valley and its slopes, of which I seemed so passionate an admirer. (…) All was silent and palpitating, as a landscape is at midday in summer.
– Honoré de Balzac, The Lily of the valley
The Balzac Museum hosts literary siestas in the shade of its century-old trees after Sunday lunch in summer. Visitors can soak up the site's silence and relax on deckchairs or the grass. As they listen to extracts of Honoré de Balzac's work read by a museum staff member, they can let their mind wander and daydream.
