A most disappointing journey and waste of a bus ticket, since despite having visited the Tourist Bureau on arrival and saying we were in Nancy specifically to study the Art Nouveau Buildings we knew nothing about the re-furb! We'd left this example, supposedly the jewel...More

We were looking forward to visiting the famous Art Nouveau ‘Villa Majorelle’, built in 1901-1902 for cabinetmaker Louis Majorelle, who designed the furniture, the wood work, the staircase and the wrought-iron work for his own house. Unfortunately we didn’t know it is currently undergoing a...More

The Villa is a classic of the Art Nouveau. It is a little run down but it is in the slow process of being restored. Well worth a visit. The tours only happen at the weekend and you need to book. The very helpful staff...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

Leaflet from Tourist info did not make clear that the Villa is ONLY open on Sat-Sun IF you have pre-booked a guided tour, which is ONLY given in French. We arrived and walked through the open gate to admire the garden after a much longer...More

I was happy to have seen the home of Majorelle, but would warn other English speakers that the tour is in French. And I might add, very rapid French. Although I understand French somewhat, the tour guide spoke very rapidly. An on-site attendant gave us...More
