History of the monument

A house of heritage. Built in the late 18th century, this manor house and its outbuildings were acquired by Madame Dupin de Francueil, the paternal grandmother of George Sand.
A personality to be rediscovered. Born Aurore Dupin in 1804, George Sand earned a living from her writing and was very independent. Separated from her husband, she defended the rights of women in her works and was involved in the 1848 Revolution.





To ensure the safety of our visitors, the monument is strictly applying the security measures decided by the french authorities.
The monument is fully opened.
