Deanna Durbin lived in this remodeled farmhouse in the town of Neauphle-Le-Chateau. The property, enclosed by a high vine hung wall, has two buildings. The long front building on the road once was a barn. The upper hayloft window is boarded up, and along the first floor a row of uniform windows has been installed to admit light. Also, the wall has been cut away here and there as part of the renovation. The property, which used to be a farmyard, now boasts a little garden in its midst, along with an old stone well, and a chestnut tree that is lit with white flowers in the spring. In the rear is the original farmhouse – two storied with dormer windows in its red tiled roof. After walking a few paces down a lane that borders an orchard, you see a locked gate that accesses the property from the side.

The original address was 49 Avenue de la Republique:

An arial view of the farmhouse where Deanna Durbin once lived in Neauphle-Le-Chateau:



In later years, the property number at the front entrance was removed and the land was divided into smaller plots.

The name "Neauphle" is a Gallic word meaning the Temple Nine.

The town's inhabitants are called Neauphléens.

Deanna Durbin stated the following in an April 1990 letter:

"Unfortunately, as I have left Neauphle, the sending of more photos will not be possible. For a short while the Neauphle post is handling my letter mail, but refuses packages and big photo envelopes. At this moment we are travelling and visiting with friends and family and have no definite address."



Deanna and Charles eventually moved to the centre of Paris where they lived for the rest of their lives.
