If you love modern architecture and are in the Paris area, it is worth a short trip out to the Le Corbusier designed Villa Savoye, a step back in time to the 1930s.

If you are reading this review, you have probably already decided to seek out the Villa Savoye and you therefore know a lot about it, so there isn't much I can tell you. I would just urge you to take the trouble to plan a visit (it isn't easy to get to), as it is well worth your while. Simply... More

If you are interested in visiting Villa Savoye there is (statistically) a 60% probability that you are an architect or student of architecture, so you already know about Villa Savoye's iconic status as the perfect application of Le Corbusier's "five points of a new architecture" and have seen endless images of the house and its setting. The reality is much... More

Very little art or architecture can endure as 'contemporary' for a century. I've designed and built a couple of so called modern houses and visited many but Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye still works the best. Fantastic they restored the gardener's cottage - looks great. The Vila is in need of the same tlc. Nonetheless, its well worth a visit -... More

Villa Savoye is an important work of the famous Swiss architect Le Corbusier. Not easy to access except by car, the villa seems to be familiar and modern to us whereas it was built 80 years ago because of it's modern style illustrating the Le Corbusier's "five points" theory. No audio guide but the bookshop is well furnished, so you... More

If you are an architect in Paris you should definitely visit the Villa Savoye. It’s easy to arrive with the RER, but keep in mind that the A line is undergoing renovation and it’s not arriving to Poissy, so check if it’s back to normal before visiting. When I went alternative train was replacing it from Gare Saint Lazare. Once... More

As one of the icons of modernism learned about as an architecture student, fantastic to see in the flesh. Restored to a reasonable level, it's at once evocative of its time and timeless. Entertaining enough for a 4 year old to explore with a good bookshop. A must if you're anywhere nearby.

We visited Villa Savoye and were amazed that it was built somewhere between 1928 & 1931, as with a little renovation it could be a modern day building. The spiral staircase, the use of large windows, square lines mixed with modern curves, this architect was beyond his time in his style. There was even an ensuite attached to one of... More

The ville Savoye is about 1 hour from the city center if you don't want to rent a car. We took the train RER A to Poissy and then the bus number 50 to the house. During the train trip you can see the big buildings of La Defense from your window if you don't have the time to stop... More

I was surprised to discover, by chance, that one of Le Corbusier's masterpieces was easily reachable by public transit from downtown Paris. There was also an exhibition on Le Corbusier at Pompidou Centre but it doesn't compare with the real thing. Take the RER A to Poissy (zone 5) and walk 20' through picturesque Poissy to reach the villa. I... More
