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 rebuilt after suffering during the war) in the 1960s and again in the 1990s the... More

This is obviously a must-see for fans of modernist architecture but in my opinion it would benefit immensely from being furnished. Empty rooms tell us nothing about the way the living space would have looked when it was originally lived-in. Could do with some TLC too - wobbly door handles, creaky doors, dripping taps, wonky tiles... With a minimum of... More

These types of architectural wonders are usually quite a feat to visit, as they require prior booking and tend to be available to see only through guided tours. So it was a pleasant surprise to find out Villa Savoye, one of Le Corbusier's masterpiece and recently inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list, allows visitors just walk around on their... More

While a bit out of the way, if you have some time to kill, Villa Savoye is a pleasant stop. It highlights several of LeCorbusier's modernist principles and offers today's visitor an interesting juxtaposition of 1930s and avant-garde architecture. It's a home that may not suit today's lifestyle, but it's fascinating to look forward from the past and consider which... More

We were in our way to Versailles. We stop there for an hour. It was difficult to find because there is just a hidden sign...You will find a school near by. Le Corbusier at his maximum....Nice tour. Parking across the street

Took approx 1 hour to get to from Paris city. Very easy to get to and bus is straight forward. It was pleasant to get out of the city to visit something that wasn't overwhelmed with tourists and crowd. The house is very modern and architecture at its finest. House is a bit run down but interesting to see inside.... More

Since childhood, I've always wanted to see this house. It's quite incredible to think that this house is quickly nearing a century of age. One can imagine how avant-garde it was when it was built, walking the ramps, and checking out the well-proportion rooms with lots of windows. Le Corbusier created an icon, here.

To stand within the space is so much better than looking at a photo. Pity that the house has so little furniture to help give scale and meaning to what was a family home. Should have caught the number 50 bus from the station, its all up hill.
