La Limoise and Pierre Loti
This house is typically Charentaise. It was once owned by Eugènie Duplais, a close friend of Nadine Viaud, mother of Julien Viaud alias Pierre Loti. Mme Duplais' daughter was eight years older than Julien and was another big sister to him. They were very fond of each other and spent many days playing on the property. Pierre Loti speaks of it as a paradise on earth.
