Musée des Rochers-Sévigné

The Brittany residence of Madame de Sévigné after her marriage to Henri de Sévigné in 1644. Following the death of her husband, she spent much of time here, writing a large number of her famous letters from the residence. The museum pays tribute to her memory with full-length portraits of her and her close acquaintances. The spirit of Madame de Sévigné can also be felt in the chapel that she built, the French garden and the park whose paths she named. The orangery houses a permanent exhibition on the Rochers family, Madame de Sévigné, her work and her memory.
