Discover our elegant, understated and functional rooms at the hotel.
The new rooms of BEST WESTERN Hôtel Littéraire Gustave Flaubert
The floors of the hotel are organised around the theme of travel which he so enjoyed. We walk through the ground floor dedicated to Normandy, with Madame Bovary, Un coeur simple and Bouvard et Pécuchet.
Then Paris, the setting of L’Éducation sentimentale, followed by the antique Carthage of Salammbô.
One floor details the other works written by Flaubert such as La Tentation de saint Antoine, another evokes Flaubert’s society and friends, the last traces the writer’s journeys.
Each floor offers a quotation that can encourage reading one of the great masters of the French novel.
The rooms are personalised around a work, a character, or an intimate friend of Flaubert’s: Emma Bovary, Frédéric Moreau, Mégara, Guy de Maupassant, etc. An original watercolour by Jean Aubertin revisits the chosen theme, and a text of Helène de Lacoste gives the visitor desiring to know more, details and quotations from the writer.
