Where is the Count's new residence in The Count of Monte Cristo?After he visits Albert's home, where does he choose to live?
After taking leave of Albert and his family, Monte Cristo purchases a summerhouse in Auteuil. The summerhouse was once the site of Villefort and Madame Danglars's affair and is where they attempted to smother their newborn baby and bury him in the garden. It is also the place where Bertuccio stabbed Villefort and left him for dead.
The layout of the home is first described in Chapter 43.
They went over a tolerably large ground-floor; a second floor consisted of a salon, a bathroom, and two bedrooms; near one of the bedrooms they came to a winding staircase that led down to the garden.
It is this staircase and the garden that stand out above the other features of the house.
