The Château de Saché is a stately home built from the converted remains of a feudal castle. It is situated in Saché, Indre-et-Loire, the heart of the French Touraine, in the valley of the river Indre. It was here, between 1830 and 1837, that the French writer Honoré de Balzac wrote some of his finest works in the series La Comédie Humaine, comprising nearly 90 novels, in which he attempted to reflect every aspect of French society at that time.

French writer, Honoré de Balzac, wrote some of his finest works in the series La Comédie Humaine, comprising nearly 90 novels at Château de Saché.

Today the Château is a museum dedicated to the author’s life.

The Château was owned by Balzac’s friend, Jean de Margonne, his mother’s lover and the father of her youngest child.

He wrote many hours here in one row, frequently more than 14 hours a day,using large amounts of coffee. He would eventually die from caffeine poisoning.
