What a lovely house just off a Paris Street, backing on to a park. The house was owned by a "Count" who lived there with his son and daughter. A very sad story... the son was killed in world war 1 and the daughter and her husband and children were killed in the Nazi war camps in WW2. After the... More
Please see my review of Musee Jacquemart-Andre for suggestions. Camondo as I recall has less art but more history…the family (jewish in the 20th century) had a tragic ending, hardly a big surprise. That history and their home has been thankfully preserved for us to wander around, take a peek, and perhaps think a little about the impermanence of wealth... More

We enjoyed the chance to enter one of the large residences with a courtyard backing the lovely Parc Monceau.
