Maison Picassiette, Chartres

(240+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Fascinating little 'maison' :)
  • 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.
