Overview

An architectural manifesto, Villa Cavrois, the work of architect Robert Mallet-Stevens, a figure of the modernist school, was designed and built in Croix between 1929 and 1932 for Paul Cavrois, a textile industrialist from the Nord department, and his family. Listed as a historical monument in 1990 thanks to citizen mobilisation, and acquired by the State in 2001, the huge restoration project implemented in 2003 by the DRAC Nord-Pas-de Calais and then taken over by the Centre des Monuments Nationaux in 2008 will be completed in 2015.

Hardly ever have I come across such a beautifully restored monument. It is worth making a tour to Roubaix to see this masterpiece of modern architecture and dream about the possibility of living in such a wonderful place.

This villa was built in the Modernist style and restored after years of neglect and occupation. The style and grandeur of it has to be seen to be believed, a most interesting visit. The grounds only enhance the building.

Justice was rendered to this amazing work of avant-garde architecture created in the 30's. A place not to miss if you're traveling in the area. But do not bring kids as silence is imposed and strictly enforced indoor and outdoor! Kind of sad to think...More

Not clear on your question. If you are refering to today, perhaps because of the holiday they closed earlier. Otherwise they normally would not.

Take the Tramway (not Metro) R indirection of Roubaix and stop at Villa Cavrois then it’s a 10min walk. Trip should take about 15 min Or by car, follow direction to Croix. Street parking available. Enjoy!
