Le Roman de Renard, Raboliot, Rémi des Rauches… The man who loved nature and the Loire river above all else left in literature unforgettable novels. In Saint-Denis-de-l’Hôtel, where he lived “dans une vieille maison rêveuse” (in an old dreamy house), a new scenography presents the life and work of Maurice Genevoix.

Large canvas panels, videos, audio recordings on a tablet … everything to offer you a more modern version and a different approach to the writer’s work. 5 themes describe some facets of the academician: the man, the war, the terroir, the Loire and “Les Vernelles”, name of the house which still belongs to the Genevoix family.

An audio terminal allows you to listen to excerpts of the work of the author of Raboliot.
