Created in the Middle-Ages in a clearing, the town of Ville-d'Avray in the French department of Hauts-de-Seine has, over the centuries, managed to preserve the verdant setting, with its lakes, that makes it so attractive today. The town still features the “Fontaine du Roy”, the fountain that was reserved for the sole use of Louis XVI. Water from this fountain is said to be the best in the area around Paris.
Attracted by its charm, many artists, painters, writers and musicians, such as Jean-Rostand, Edouard-Branly, Boris-Vian as well as Yehudi-Menuhin, have lived there or taken holidays there.
The town is currently on train line L, with Sèvres-Ville-d'Avray station on the Paris-Saint-Lazare-Versailles-Rive-Droite branch line, as well as on train line U, on the La-Défense-La-Verrière line.
“La Chapelle du Roy”
This property was constructed at the end of the 19th century by Louise-Emilie-Delabigne, a famous courtesan during the Second Empire. She was known as “La Valtesse de la Bigne”, a deformation of the French word for “Your Highness” and her surname. Her former home stands on a 4,760 m² plot which looks down on to the entire commune and its surroundings. Looking out over its verdant setting, this 600 m² residence reflects an extremely classical 19th century style with white dressed stone facades, symmetrical windows and French windows as well as a zinc roof terrace, adorned with balusters. A rotunda, with its zinc dome, is another amusing architectural feature. Its porch, stone terrace and wrought iron railings combine all the architectural codes of the wonderful holiday homes at that time. A 20 m swimming pool extends the terrace, surrounded by verdant vegetation.
The style of this residence represents the Second Empire in all its splendour without the excesses that a mixture of styles can sometimes produce. The site of this somewhat stately property not only dominates the verdant town of Ville-d'Avray but also the entire west side of Paris. Its interiors are of a princely size and the natural surroundings in which Louis XIII came to hunt are still predominantly in existence all around. Raising their heads from the swimming pool, residents will be able to contemplate a vast panoramic view of the green open spaces on the outskirts of the French capital. Its one and a half centuries of existence has but given the “La Chapelle du Roy” even more splendour.
