This house where Honoré de Balzac had once lived and written is worth a visit.
At No. 47 Rue Raynouard in Paris’s chic 16th district (arrondissement), the house, a single-storey with green shutters is in a small garden with benches where you could sit down...More
... but not for those who expect a fully documented life and work story. Fairly easily found on Rue Raynouard, this little house is like a little island amidst the typically Parisian residential houses. The museum is small as well, and its biggest point of...More

My husband loves the work of Balzac ( translated into English)and so we had to visit this house in Paris.

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical
significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
