Create an itinerary including Villa Savoye
Designed by famed Swiss architects Le Corbusier and his cousin, Pierre Jeanneret, Villa Savoye represents a modern architectural masterpiece open to the public. The Savoye family commissioned the house as a country retreat in 1928, and it was finished in the early 1930s. The home became Corbusier's best-known building from the era, as it exerted an enormous influence on the international modernism architectural movement through its design. During World War II, Nazis sent the family to a concentration camp and used the house for storage. After the war, the French government took ownership; it was designated a historical monument in 1965. Plan a Poissy trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • An interesting place if you know the history of if you take the one hour plus guided tour. A conceptual marvel and a practical disaster.

  • A hidden gem outside Paris city center. It is truly a magnificent monument designed by Le Corbusier. Accessible using bus at more or less 1.5 hrs from the Paris City Center. The 2 lady curators in this monument when I visited were very nice. If you are an architecture lover, you should not miss visiting this when you travel to Paris.
  • Wonderful architectural house, it’s one architectural icon. However, they should do a better job at maintaining it. It’s such a beautiful house but it looks decrepit and like it’s falling apart. Getting here is quite a journey: train ride and then take the cab or the bus. The grounds of the house are large and the house is very nice but wished they’d maintain it better.
