Maison Picassiette, Chartres
(4.3/5 based on 200+ 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."

  • 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!
