René Guy Cadou’s House

In the Louisfert commune, the public may visit the museum dedicated to the poet René Guy Cadou (1920-1951), which has been set up in his house adjacent to the school where he was a teacher. His life was simple, devoted to poetry. Loire-Atlantique landscapes were his favourite source of inspiration, as was his wife Hélène, the love of his life. She inspired his most beautiful poems compiled in the collection entitled “Hélène ou le monde végétal” (“Hélène or the Vegetable Kingdom”).
