Situated on the edge of Meudon forest, the town of Sèvres is famous for the National Porcelain Factory, established here in the 18C, and the National Ceramics Museum. In the 19C, Sèvres had a number of well-known residents, including Balzac who, in 1838, had a chalet built at Les Jardies. Later, the author was succeeded by Gambetta who was the next occupant of the house.
