The Villa Savoye is an internationally-renowned masterpiece built by architect Charles-Edouard Jeanneret – better known as Le Corbusier – and Pierre Jeanneret, between 1928 and 1931. The villa, designed for the Savoye family (hence its name), is...more
The site is an open space surrounded by mature trees with the Villa in the center. You approach down a path through the trees facing the Villa which for me was an perfect introduction to the house (as Le Corbusier refers to it) and you...More
Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye in Poissy is not going to appeal to everyone. It is not at all furnished - empty spaces dull the impression of the innovative approach to architecture and design. But nonetheless an interesting architectural landmark, worth exploring by enthusiasts.
The funcionality and aesthetics of the building are impressive. This is a beautiful example of the genius of le corbusier (and his uncle). We were actually a bit disappointed by the organisation of the visit. Monuments France use a couple of rooms of the villa...More
This classic 1930s modernist house designed by Le Corbusier is a must for anyone interested in architecture and design. Access by public transport from most of Paris requires metro, train and bus but a bit of googling will get you there. The signs at Poissy...More
A highly enjoyable visit by a group of National Trust volunteers from London. In perfect weather, we had a fascinating tour of the Villa with a local guide, Thomas, who spoke very clearly in English. He revealed a number of surprising secrets, including: the significance...More
As an architectural student I studied le corbu, and the villa savoye. It's amazing to see something build nearly 70 years ago could still be so relevant. I highly recommend planning you visit around the English guided tour
Nothing can detract from the overall design of the building, and as the manifesto of "the five points" for Le Corbusier's and Jeanneret Perriand's "new architecture" it is still magnificent. However the upkeep of the Villa is very poor. Having being refurbished (closer to being...More
Take the train from Saint Lazare station to Poissy it's only 20 minutes and €5 if you get the express. Saint Lazare is near Printemps.

Navigo pass validity question (8 Replies)
Hello, I found Navigo decouverte passes from our trip in May 2009. What I have is an I-card and a smart card with a chip both bearing the same number- both in plastic case. We are planning a trip in November 2014. My question is whether it will be still valid when we arrive? I read here that ND is valid for 10 years but back in 2009 while purchasing it remembered it to be valid for 5 years. Also, will zone 1-5 pass cover our trips to Versailles, Poissy (for Villa Savoye), Provins...More

I believe that Provins is beyond zone 5.
Villa Savoye in Poissy (2 Replies)
Would be interested in going out to see this important piece of architecture. Am wondering how long it takes to get there - looks like you can take the RER and then a taxi. Is there anything else to do out there or should we just come right back? Places to have lunch perhaps?

It's worth a visit but it's in a residential area so nothing really to recommend for lunch in the immediate vicinity. But go!!
