Visite guidée : Colette à Besançon, la belle époque

Visite guidée : Colette à Besançon, la belle époque

-

Although little known to the general public, there are links between Besançon and one of the greatest writers of French literature.
In 1900, Henry Gauthier-Villars, alias Willy, a prominent journalist and Colette's husband, bought a property in Besançon, in a remote part of the city called Les Montboucons.
Colette was very attached to this house and spent all her summers there until 1905. When the couple divorced, Willy sold the house, much to Colette's regret.

This dramatised walk, led by a tour guide and an actress, takes us to the rhythm of Colette's magnificent prose and the places she frequented during the Belle Époque.
