After the death of Louis XIV the pe-tite maison developed into a space dedicated to love and intimacy. Built in secluded spots, the petites maisons served as secret meeting places for lovers as well as for gas-tronomic and sensual gatherings arranged by certain libertines such as the duke of Richelieu. This licentious atmosphere soon became a focal point of gossip and stories welcome by the writers of the time and used in their libertine narrative. A represen-tative example of this narrative is ap-proached in this article.
