Description:

Hidden away between the grands boulevards and Pigalle, you'll find a tree-lined path leading to a courtyard garden overlooked by both the Musée de la Vie Romantique and its summer teahouse, which is in a little glasshouse beside the main building, and open only in the summer. The main house was once home to the painter Ary Scheffer whose friends the composer Frederic Chopin and his partner the writer George Sand often dropped by. Among the other artists living nearby was Franz Liszt and from the 1820s the whole area buzzed with creativity. Listen to Chopin playing in the background as you explore the exhibits in the house, then repair to the teahouse for tea or a light meal as you plan your next symphony or novel. If the weather is fine you can sit under the trees.
