  • Apart from the play Cyrano de Bergerac, I didn't know much about Edmond Rostand. This place shows how a small sheep-covered plateau can be transformed into a home of palatial comfort.
  • Beautiful house and gardens. Edmond Rostand's literary output is internationally acclaimed and illustrations add meaningful interest.
