Villa Savoye

Nestled in a country setting, the famous Villa Savoye, designed by Le Courbusier, makes you feel right at home.


At the edge of the forest sits a surprising white construction. A jewel of 20th-century architecture posed on pylons and supporting a rooftop terrace garnished with cylindrical forms. Le Courbusier’s goal was to create a country home, a beautiful and functional ‘machine to live in’.

To understand the architectural work of Le Courbusier, you must imagine actually living in the house ! The fluidity of the open-space interior design, the brightness and the purity of his geometric forms.

Veritable manifest of modern architecture, the Villa Savoye brings together five of the architects ideas or wishes : pylons, open plan inside and out, ribbon windows and a roof garden ! Classified as a national monument, a very enjoyable and instructive visit.
