Maison Picassiette, Chartres

(4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Covered from floor to ceiling with mosaics, Maison Picassiette is a house decorated with glass, stone, and ceramic all by one man named Raymond Isidore. Not only are the walls, floors, exterior, and ceilings covered in mosaics--the beds, furniture, and stove are, too. You can even walk on several floors and walkways covered with mosaics made from broken pieces of marble. Peruse the garden walls for more mosaic motifs at the home called "Picassiette," meaning "Picasso of the Plate." Put Maison Picassiette on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Chartres trip builder.

  • Visit that worth it for a small price. If you are offered an escort or companion for comment on the visit, don't hesitate.

  • 好吧,这个地方真的很远!距离城里面要走30分钟而且入口十分不显眼。票价感觉偏贵,要6欧元左右。但是 这个是一个文艺的拍照地点,让人感觉十分小清新而且十分浪漫。  more »
  • It can be visited once by the way if we're in the corner, without more, but we must recognize the work of the gentleman

  • So beautiful! I was a bit skeptical about it, but when I finally saw it, I loved it. The garden is also amazing. A must see.
  • Another history rich location in France. The details of the artist is significant.
  • The work of a well developed and well preserved life. The children are impressed, and it's a good opportunity to use the different representations of places and symbols presented to impart a bit of culture.

  • The product of decades of obsession with one man. Every detail of the House is densely decorated with ceramic fragments recovered from landfill. Have fun finding the Cinzano ashtray!
