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

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
