The Château de Villette, in Val d'Oise, was built at the end of the 17th century according the plans of Jules Hardouin-Mansart. The domain, that has had many owners, still carries the mark of Enlightenment during which it hosted the brightest minds. The Marquis de Condorcet and his wife Sophie de Grouchy, an intellectual couple, welcomed there the greatest men of the time: Marquis de La Fayette, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson... Classified as a historic monument since 1942, the Château de Villette reveals a preserved and restored heritage thanks to its current owners and to decorator Jacques Garcia.
With Sophie de Grouchy as a muse, this book, illustrated with unpublished photographs, uncovers the intellectual and cultural heritage which has been lasting in the domain for eight centuries.
