  • Quelle tristesse de voir ce lieu si emblématique fermé j'avoue que j'ai du mal à comprendre pourquoi on arrive pas à trouver les financements pour le restaurer,c'est magique comme endroit,il reste encore pour moi,l'une de mes plus belle visite
  • J'ai lu Pierre Loti dans mon adolescence avec bonheur. Je le relis régulièrement toujours avec le même plaisir. Je suis venue visiter la maison de Loti il y a fort longtemps et je suis restée? encore aujourd'hui, émerveillée par ce lieu si particulier et si enchanteur. Je suis extrêmement peinée et déçue de découvrir qu'un tel patrimoine culturel puisse menacer ruine. Comment en est-on arrivé là? Il faut absolument sauver ce lieu pour le transmettre et s'enrichir de sa singularité.
