Join the Paris Chapter for this exceptional visit of the Hôtel de Gesvres. Built in 1655 by the architect Antoine Le Pautre for Le Duc de Gesvres, governor of Paris, this mansion was purchased in 2000 by the renowned interior decorators Joseph Achkar and Michel Charrière to whom we owe the restoration of the Hotel de la Marine in Paris.
With the exception of the cabinet des mirroirs, which remains intact, and the only one known today in Paris with its ceiling painted by Louis de Boulogne, all the rooms have been restored, furnished and decorated as in the 17th and 18th centuries with Versailles parquet floors and craved wooden paneling.
The owners will introduce us to this refined atmosphere where each object and painting transport us to the Age of Enlightenment. We warmly thank them for opening the doors to their wonderful private residence.
In French. Subject to all sanitary requirements in effect. “Pass Sanitaire”(QR Code) required. A mask must be worn during the visit.
Cost: 50€ / $59
