Samuel Beckett's House, Roussillon

 Here are some pictures of the house near Roussillon where Beckett lived in the Second World War, having fled Paris. I visited it last week (it's currently for sale). It's a 5 minute walk from the centre of Roussillon.


  1. Dear Mark, I'm visiting Roussillon in July and have been trying to contact the owners of Beckett's house to set up an appointment. The email address the hotel gave me doesn't work Do you have any suggestions for me? Thanks very much! ~ Meenakshi

    1. will get back to you. We had to pose as potential buyers. Might you let me have your email address?

  2. There's a veiled reference to Beckett and his partner on their flight from Paris to Roussillon in this story.
