On the far east side of Parc Monceau you will find this century old version of a hotel particulier housing a superb collection of art, furniture, tablewear and what not, all collection by a Jewish Ottoman banker in the name of his only son who died in the Great war. This is then also a home of the super rich a hundred years ago and you get to see for example the kitchen region as part of the apparatus which created this lavish lifestyle. The dimension and showing of the museum allows you to stroll around as really in a home of the one per cent of that era. The museum is equipped with an unusually nice restaurant in what was probably the former garage. The guides are very helpful and knowledgable. A top place to visit. And don't forget to take a stroll in Parc Monceau, the prettiest park in central Paris.

This amazing mansion was built at the turn of the century by a financier with a passion for 18th Century French furniture, art etc. The access to the mansion was easy (no lines) and the audio tour allows you to meander through the quiet hallways at a slow pace so refreshing from most attractions in Paris. I did not care much for the art and endless collections but I was fascinated by the design and construction of the public/private space. Many public rooms were designed to precisely accommodate paneling lifted from older mansions and the overall affect was very lovely. Of greater interest to me were the bathroom and kitchen areas because they were "modern" versus the "old world" public areas. Adding historical significance to this "folly" is the tragic end to this family which illuminates the shame of Occupied France in its treatment of Jews during the occupation.

We visited this beautiful home yesterday and were amazed at the lovely furnishings, paintings and the architecture of the home. The people of France are so lucky to have been given such a beautiful home dating from the 1900's.

This mansion a replica of the little Trianon is now a museum is filled with works of art from the 18th century, that date back to the Queen Marie Antoinette.
the Camondo's house is a walk in the late XVIII century, where each room has been beautifully set with the paintings, the tapestries and furniture of this sephardic family.
Finally, how could you not be sad with the tragic end of the Camondo Family.
