Lacoste, France: Marquis de Sade, Pierre Cardin and the Boulangerie
Boulangerie, Lacoste in the Luberon Mikki says: The boulangerie is now privately owned and is a residence. The cobblestone street still serves many a curious traveller, transfixed by the feeling of times gone by. The formerly sleepy town of Lacoste once was the home of the Marquis de Sade (1740 to 1814). The Marquis earned a rather shady reputation from stories of the goings-on in the castle that he built there. The castle was later owned by a retired postman, and now is owned by fashion designer and philanthropist Pierre Cardin. Want to go?
