in the middle of a vast vineyard estate dating back to the 17th century.
Lamartine spent a straightforward and happy family childhood here.
He inherited in 1830 but in 1860, was obliged to sell this home,
the inspiration for some of this most beautiful poem :
"Milly ou la terre natale" and "La vigne et la maison".
The house, which is still part of a vineyard estate,
has belonged to the Sornay family since 1861.
