Designed by famed Swiss architects Le Corbusier and his cousin, Pierre Jeanneret, Villa Savoye represents a modern architectural masterpiece open to the public. The Savoye family commissioned the house as a country retreat in 1928, and it was finished in the early 1930s. The home became Corbusier's best-known building from the era, as it exerted an enormous influence on the international modernism architectural movement through its design. During World War II, Nazis sent the family to a concentration camp and used the house for storage. After the war, the French government took ownership; it was designated a historical monument in 1965. Plan a Poissy trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

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.

Wonderful architectural house, it’s one architectural icon. However, they should do a better job at maintaining it. It’s such a beautiful house but it looks decrepit and like it’s falling apart. Getting here is quite a journey: train ride and then take the cab or the bus. The grounds of the house are large and the house is very nice but wished they’d maintain it better.
Beautiful architecture !
