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

We visited Villa Savoye and happened to notice that there is an English tour every Wed and Fri. We asked the ticket guy who said he would be leading it at 11am. We toured the villa for half an hour and returned to the front desk to find that my husband and I were the only ones. The guide, Thomas,... More

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
