‪The house at Nohant Vic is rather lovely and it's nice to imagine all the greats that stayed there. But the service level - abominable!
Ticketing is via the website. But the caissière still needs to work the cash register in a way that suggests she fears it'll explode. Oh well, it's the holidays, chat amongst yourselves in the slowly growing queue.
The same lady turns out also to be at the gift shop checkout. Only after laboriously adding up the cost of the one guidebook in English and some cookies she asks to pay in cash as electronic payment is in repair. Put up a note! You do everything else by pen!

We would rather like a cup of tea by now. The adjacent Auberge turns out to be run by a stressed out misanthrope. A terrace full of clients is snarled at whilst mad gestures are aimed at one.

Our lives were saved by Rapid Food, across from the lion d'argent at the entrance of La Châtre. Great food, very friendly service!‬

‪This is way out in the countryside which adds to the charm. The grounds are well done, graves well kept, two trees planted for her children are interesting. The building is fine for a country home but not stately, quite livable, quite comfortable. The Murano glassworks on the ground floor are superb. The concert hall in the barn is well done but without a/c or fans hence... good luck plus the best tickets are reserved for the teetee Parisians so you get ripped off no matter what. The talent can be reputable but watch out - they use this place as dress rehearsal for Aix or Orange so don't expect what you are paying for... hate that.‬

‪It would have been a lovely experience but the lack of anything in English spoilt it for my friends who spoke no French at all. The guide was very knowledgeable, but would not let me translate for my friends because it ‘disturbed’ her even though I was whispering, very rude of her I thought. The house is very nice and interesting, but there is no effort to address anyone else but French people, such a shame. So, if you do not understand French, no need to go, as you cannot wander around on your own, you have to follow a guide, and there is not even a sheet of paper in English with some information about the place. Very disappointing and short sighted in this day and age. ‬

‪This house built in early XIXth century has a lot of souvenirs from George Sand and her friends including Chopin and Delacroix.
The guided visit is interesting but in French only.
The small garden is pleasant.
Photos allowed inside the house.‬

‪The guided visit of George Sand house is fantastic if you understand french. Otherwise, there are no explanations in any other languages apart from 5 lines at the entrance. It is time to realise that some foreigners are interested and would like to understand. ‬

‪This was a planned visit ....planned for many months as I have been a follower of George Sand.....her life and her writings...for years. I even convinced my husband to read Elizabeth Berg’s historical novel Dream Lover before the trip. All this to say that we set off from Bourges with excitement to visit the George Sand home. We had GPS fixed to Nohant Vic.....but of course there were signs for the MaIson George Sand posted miles from the site.....then the signs changed from “maIson” to Circuit George Sand ....
We found a parking lot in Nohant with a few cars and a map for the “ circuit”.....with the George Sand house marked on it as #1.....but to us it looked like the house was on the D72 ...so we drove there and then drove parts of the circuit. We were looking for a sign that said MaIson Ici! But nothing. A half hour plus later..frustrated and with time running out before the lunch break we decided to park in another lot and walk down a small road with Chopin’s name on it.... and there we were.....but it was luck and determination not to quit that got us there! Not great signage.
For devout followers the house is amazing and the cemetery as well.....just to be there....but this is a very French historic site....an error I believe since George Sand is world renowned....I knew the tour was In French only but not one book in English in by standards quite a large gift shop?......surely there must be enough English speaking visitors to warrant some books in English?
The gardens this time of year...May.. are spotty at best...not much in bloom.....and I am sure the whole property is a money pit to keep up.....and the small entrance fee falls short of maintaining this home of a national treasure. The French visitors that day were very enthusiastic and showered the tour guide with many Euros which I thought could have gone to more upgrades if a different tip method was used.
I think someone needs to take charge of this site with a more “International “mind set....and as one book store attendant told me in French...I should learn French! I did understand enough to get her point ....unwelcoming as it was.‬

‪My husband and I visited this famous french writer's house and indeed the region in July of this year. The tour was very interesting and insightful into the life of an intriguing lady. The grounds were well kept and the weather was beautiful‬

‪A well kept property of a famous literary genie who entertained so many famous artists of the romantic 19th Century. One has to make a special trip through the beautiful prairies of the center of France to get there, and has to make a stop of 3 hours before heading on to the nearest town La Châtre for lodging.
Worth the visit if interested in romantic France of the past. ‬

‪I loved my visit to the house and Gardens but it would have been enhanced had I bought the English guide book first. Look at the inside flap to guide you round the exterior as we missed the family burial ground. Also highly recommend the restaurant across the road beautiful dining room 21Euro for three courses. Delicious. We went had lunch and then got to the Museum for the 3pm tour.‬
