Interesting architectural landmark
Jul 2021
An interesting place if you know the history of if you take the one hour plus guided tour. A conceptual marvel and a practical disaster.

A must for architects and other enthusiast
Apr 2019
Though I might be biased as an architect student, I recommend everyone with an interest for the modern period to visit le Corbusiers most famous building. Though it is both overrated and underrated at the same time it is worth a visit either way as it is amazingly interesting. The guiding was nice, but any architect (should) know enough about the building to make the visit without one. Its also great to make a day-long escape from Paris to this charming suburban area.

To Corbu or not to Corbu
Sep 2018
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 do get the floating effect created by the raised first floor. The ground floor is for vehicular access and is shaped by the turning radius of a car. A ramp in the center of the house organizes the living spaces around it on the first and second floor. In drawings and photos the house appears very large but actually has a pleasant human scale. Light comes from everywhere accenting the "open" plan. Built in 1928 as a "weekend house" for the Savoye family it stands as an example of Le Corbusier's principals of "modern architecture": the "Five Points of a New Architecture" (Google it!). You don't have to be an architect/student to enjoy this visit and you may learn something!

Interesting, but mostly for enthusiasts
Jun 2018 • Couples
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.

Perfection
Jul 2017
If you want to see what the architecture is, then go to villa Savoye. Perfection, an poem written on the space. The words are little to say.

Famous villa of le corbusier
Jan 2018 • Couples
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 as offices and that's a pity. The ticket office and shop had to be outside the villa. A good example is the rietveld-schroder-house. Because of this and because of the little information, i was les enthousiastic as when we visited villa tugendhat (van der rohe), notre dame du haut, villa weber, rietveld-schroder-house, villa cavrois (mallet-stevens),...

The modern architecure's symbol
Jun 2017
For architecure's lovers, it's must-see ! For laymans, it's a good overview of modern architecture. The best education and knowledge is in real experience, especially for art.

A classic of modern architecture
Oct 2017
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 station help direct you on the last bus leg although it is only a pleasant 20 minute walk. Coming back is all down hill not so getting there. The house is a stylish knock out. Take a free guided tour if you can and you will appreciate it so much more. Recommended.
