Discover Hauteville House (Guernsey) United Kingdom

Victor Hugo's famous house is located on Saint Peter Port heights. Mansion of the poet who went into exile from 1855 to 1870, it has been furnished and decorated by Victor Hugo himself. From the hallway to the lookout, visiting the house is not at all like visiting a museum. The house has been left the same, and its presents much woodwork, living-rooms decorated with tapestries and rooms with Dutch earthenware. Each time that you go up a floor, you will notice that the spaces become bigger and the decoration gets lighter. One of the best moments of the visit is the discovery of the poet's work room. Victor Hugo would write standing up in front of his lookout, a kind of porch that looks out on the port.
