Recently reopened, the Hôtel de Lauzun is located on the eastern edge of île Saint-Louis. It is one of the most beautiful and rare Parisian mansions, having preserved its 17th century decorations.
The famous Duke of Lauzun, suitor to the Grande Mademoiselle (niece of the Sun King), the Duke of Richelieu (descendant of the famous Cardinal) , Baudelaire and its ‘Haschischins’ club were some of the most noticeable occupants of this mansion.
Restored in the 20th century, the Hotel de Lauzun offers a magnificent grand staircase, a succession of small cabinets adorned with painting and friezes, and a beautiful wrought iron balcony overlooking the river Seine.
Do not miss this must-see exceptional mansion!
