Overview
More
This winegrower's house, built on the southern slopes of the Domaine de Saint-Cloud at the end of the 17th century, was converted into a country retreat in the early 19th century. It belonged to novelist Honore de Balzac, and subsequently became the property of Leon Gambetta, the founder of the Third Republic, who bought the house in 1878 and died here four years later. The Maison des Jardies has retained its original decor and today recalls the life and work of this great statesman and combative republican. Open: > Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (one week-end on two) : at 2.30 p.m., 4.00 p.m. and 5.00 p.m. // Tours can be organised at other times upon request. Closed: > 1st January, 1st May and 25th December. Admission fees: Adults : 6,00 € ; Concessions (18 to 25) = 5,00 €; Free admission: minors under 18*; Free admission: 18-25 years old* (citizens of one of the 27 countries of the EU or are non-European permanent residents of France) * excluding school groups

Beautifully preserved rooms, primarily based on the life and times of Leon Gambetta. A great way to better appreciate why there are so many places in France with Gambetta's name, including a Paris metro station. Excellent docents who know anything and everything about Gambetta -...More
