This building was one of my priorities for coming to Nancy. Unfortunately the tour (which I had reserved in advance) was mainly of the exterior (and in French). The first floor has interesting art nouveau detailing, and the diningroom has a great fireplace and dome...More

A beautiful Art Noveau Villa on the outside, but coming inside you will find that the restoration project just started. Basically no furnishing, and basically empty rooms. The guide gave a good explanation about the history and future plans but unfortunately only in French. Althoug...More
