An invitation on a journey to (re)discover Flaubert

The decoration of the Literary Hotel Gustave Flaubert was conceived by the architect Aude Bruguière assisted by Aleth Prime to pay tribute to Flaubert and to enter into his world.

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.

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.

A unique collection of original editions

Exposed in the entrance of the hotel, they are a precious collection, from the most well-known titles to the rarest. We can see the first printings of Madame Bovary (Michel Lévy, 1857, with the inaccurate dedication to the lawyer, Sénard, written Sénart) and of Salammbô (Michel Lévy, 1863 ; it includes the errors «effraya» instead of «effrayèrent» p. 5, and «Scissites» instead of «Syssites»).

A multilingual library

The Best Western Plus Hotel Litteraire Gustave Flaubert, like the Swann in Paris for Marcel Proust, has a library of over 500 books. The works of the author are available in pocket editions for all of the visitors and in many languages (English, German, Russian, Estonian, …).
