The House of George Sand is a writer's house museum in the village of Nohant, in the Indre department of France. It was the home of George Sand , a French authoress, and was purchased by the French state in 1952. The house was preserved because it was where Sand wrote many of her books and hosted some of the most important artists and writers of her time, including Chopin, Balzac, Turgenev, and Delacroix.
The writer and her family are buried in a small cemetery between the garden and the village church. The gardens are classified by the French Ministry of Culture as among the Notable Gardens of France. The house is open to the public and is managed by the Centre des monuments nationaux.
