Villa Savoye is a short bus ride or an uphill walk from Poissy station. While it is of special interest to lovers of architecture, most people would enjoy visiting this famous house. The large grounds make it an oasis from the busy streets outside. Nice place to enjoy a picnic lunch. The small shop has a selection of books on... More

It is worth making the trip out to Poissy from Paris even if you're not particularly knowledgable about architecture as this is a visually striking example of the modernist style in a calm environment. Poissy can be reached by RER (line A from Charles De Gaulle Etoile, Chatelet, Gare de Lyon or Nation in Paris). Trains run every 30 minutes... More

Even for non-architects, this place is a good way to understand modernist thinking in designing houses. Bus and train schedules can post some problems as you may end up waiting for a long time, so check the schedules before going there and at what time you can leave to catch your bus back at the train station.

Went with my sister and brother in law who are architects and wanted to see the space. It was interesting even for the non architect, but someone who just likes modern architecture. I thought the house and permanent exhibit were good and worth the trip out. What was extremely annoying and detracted from the trip was the temporary exhibit "The... More

Designed by Le Corbusier, this modern structure is most interesting.. My Granddaughter is a student of Architecture and visiting Villa Savoye was on her list of must see places to visit in and around Paris. Because she had the foresight to bring her student identification there was no admission charge for her. Our hotel arranged a taxi from Paris to... More

Any architecture enthusiast should definitely add the Villa Savoye to his Paris itinerary: I won't go into details about how amazing this structure is - suffice it to say that I was knocked off my feet the first time I visited, both by the way the building is tied to the surrounding nature and by the way it appears to...

If you are interested in modern architecture, this short train trip to Poissy is a great morning adventure. The guided tour of the house was provided (in French) by an enthusiastic docent. The house is beautiful of course, but I was dissapointed that it wasn't staged with furntiure, art, or accessories of the period. Same for Corbu's Villa Roche in... More

He was a leading modernism architect at that time. If you go by Train you should aware that RER line A has many destinations. I told the ticket booth that i need... More

This masterpiece, designed by Le Corbusier, was on my bucket list since I was in my early teens. During a visit to Paris with my wife, and local family, we (myself) decided to visit the house after the obligated Versailles outing. I was acting like a kid on the way to the house, obviously exited by the idea of experiencing... More

If you have come to Paris for the usual - Notre Dome, The Louvre, Eiffel Tower - your itinerary may not extend to Villa Savoye. But if you appreciate brilliant design and modernism architecture, visit Villa Savoye in the Paris suburb of Poissay. Designed by Le Corbusier in 1928, it is provocative and fascinating to imagine in its time. A... More
