Simenon a writer in Terre Neuveactu127
autobiographical “PEDIGREE”. You can still see the beautiful desk of the 18th century where he worked on. His friend, the painter Maurice de VLAMINCK came often to visit him in Terre Neuve.
It is in the forest of Vouvant, then at the castle of Terre Neuve in Fontenay le Comte, “Saint Mesmin le vieux” and the Hotel des Roches Noires in les Sables D’olonne that  the writer asserts his art and reputation of being a great French literature novelist . During this period, he wrote some of his major works: «The truth about baby Donge», «aîné des Ferchaux “…
No doubt are the complex links of a writer with its places of stays even if not always apparent.It is however in les Sables D’olonne, that the action ‘son Campo”in 1942 and”Holiday of Maigret”in 1948 takes place.
