All closeby Set around its own private courtyard, The house offers a retreat from the outside world, within the thriving town of Hesdin. To stay here, in the home of l'Abbe Prevost and his family, offers a unique chance to step into his colourful and idiosyncratic world. In his library, surrounded and sometimes interrupted by his large family, l'Abbe Prevost grew up and imagined much of his finest work. Working at prodigious speed writing his Manon L'escaut. The family reserved some of the finest flourishes for their own home: some remain, others we have reinstated. The house has a private teracce overlooking the river and the church. Today, the house has regained the glowing vitality it enjoyed in the lifetime of its brilliant and mercurial former owner. To share the same merriment in the dining-room and to sit, as he did, in the library, surrounded by panneled oak walls. You will find in Hesdin museum, historic buildings, shops and walks to be made. Closeby to the sea, montreuil etc... and all in the heart of the seven valleesMore
