The Grand Trianon of Le Vésinet: the Palais Rose
A treasure in the heart of this green Parisian suburb, the Palais Rose recalls the architectural style of the Grand Trianon and offers a splendid view of Le Vésinet's Lac des Ibis.
The poet welcomed a great many artists at his receptions, including Claude Debussy, Maurice Rostand, Colette and Jean Cocteau.
In 1923, the house was acquired by Luisa Casati before being sold again, in 1934, to Auguste-Eustache Leprévost. The Musée de Versailles took advantage of this sale to buy back the marble bathtub. Part of the temple had to be demolished – it lost its cupola – to extract the bathtub, which is now housed at the Orangerie.
Open only on special occasions, such as the Journées Européennes du Patrimoine (European Heritage Days).
