The gardens are well maintained and the rooms are 'preserved' in time. There is an audio commentary in various languages as one walks around the former home of St Therese.

After leaving Alençon, the Martin family moved to Les Buissonnets in November 1877, a house found and rented by Uncle Isidore Guérin, pharmacist in Lisieux. Thérèse lived there from the age of 4 and a half until she entered Carmel at the age of 15. If for Mr. Martin the change of residence and city amounted to uprooting, it was not the same for Thérèse who felt "no sorrow when leaving Alençon, children love change and it was with pleasure that I came. in Lisieux ”.
Nice and beautiful place to visit.
