    Le salon de Victor Hugo

    Literary Salon

    On the 29 Avril 1874, Victor Hugo moved into the fourth floor of this austere building without balconies. With him were his mistress, Juliette Drouet, his daughter-in-law, Alice and his grandchildren, Georges and Jeanne. The writer held lots of receptions here, inviting the glittering figures of the day – including the Goncourt brothers, Louis Blanc, Flaubert, Gambetta, Clémenceau. It was here that Hugo penned his last novel, « Ninety-three », dedicated to the French Revolution and the Convention.
