WORTH GETTING OUT OF BED FOR:
The impressive townhouse, lush greeneries, The Thinker, oh-so-fresh air and absolutely mind-blowing Rodin’s work!
My dear great friend, you should see this beautiful building and the room I have occupied since this morning. Its three bay windows open expansively on to an abandoned garden, where trusting rabbits can sometimes be seen leaping through the trellises like figures in an ancient tapestry.
So wrote the poet Rainer Maria Rilke to the sculptor Auguste Rodin, from the Hôtel Biron in Paris in 1908.
