Duchess de Dino made everything to make the stays at Rochecotte charming. The furniture contains a refined choice of, paintings, portraits, chandeliers and valuable furniture and the comfort is not forgotten there.

The Prince of Talleyrand

Rochecotte for Talleyrand, has the charm of the constant presence of his niece. ” I like it a lot, he writes. The life which we lead here, the air which we inhale there, politics so far away, everything suits me there and especially because I am not only with Madam de Dino there, but at her home.”

Finally, Talleyrand finds to Rochecotte Pauline’s delicious presence, daughter of Dorothée, whom he calls “his dear Kitten “, and which he says is the angel of the house.
