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

Arrived in Paris and headed straight to Poissy. GPS claimed arrival at the Villa Savoye, but no---The passage of time has surrounded it with sketchy, apartment complexes and a chain link fence with a 50-year anniversary poster the only indicator of the entrance (It was only persistence and some kind locals who helped us finally navigate to it.)

For architecture people this is a must visit. It is a bit of a walk for the train station, but it is worth the walk. The setting is beautiful inside the fence.

I been in Poissy together with an architect and even if I didnt know much about this, I really liked that place! It represents the beginning of the modern architecture and while visiting you can enjoy and understand the peace of this place, located in the middle of a garden, and far from the noise of the city. Recommended!

Hidden just outside Paris is this interesting house designed by Le Corbusier. A must for people that are interested in achitecture. But you don't have to be an achitect to understand what is so special about the building. The perfectly English speaking guide was really inspiring. After this I had the feeling I grasped the basics of modern architecture! Please... More

This place is a blast from the past with a very modern look. Built in 1931, is one of the most easily recognizable and renowned examples of the International style. It is still in very good condition. We drove past the place two times because the sign is so small and you can't see it from the street. Our navigations... More

Excellent trip, especially for architecture buffs. I'd echo the positives in the other posts and recommend googling for the many excellent write-ups on the architectural significance of the house (some suggestions below). I visited on a soggy grey day in January. Not the best weather or season to appreciate the house but still worth it. The staff was dedicated and... More

Villa Savoye is situated in Poissy, just outside of Paris. We had to take the RER-A direction Poissy and then continue by bus no.50. Firstly, the trip from Paris to the villa was an exploration itself: we got the chance to see a different side of France, a different scenery from Paris, and a closer contact with the locals. The...

Villa Savoye is situated in large, private grounds, not far from the centre of Poissy. Though the design ideas have since been "copied" a million times, what makes Villa Savoye interesting is that it was breaking new ground in design terms, being onstructed very early on in the modern movement. Also, of course, it was designed by "the master" himself,... More

An unusual house who show to the visitor the style of Le Corbusier and at the same time the style of a period. Nice discovery
