Villa Cavrois Tours

Villa Cavrois
The modernist masterpiece of Parisian architect Robert Mallet-Stevens, Villa Cavrois is a National Historic Monument in the Lille suburb of Croix. Built in 1932 for its namesake, the industrialist Paul Cavrois, the architectural landmark has been painstakingly restored and stands as the foremost example of Mallet-Stevens’ work.   

The Basics
Visitors can explore the villa on a self-guided tour, where exhibitions detail the building’s groundbreaking design, the work of Mallet-Stevens, and the 13-year restoration project completed in the 21st century. A tour takes in the home’s spacious interiors, including the kitchen and bedrooms; the view from the rooftop terraces; and the landscaped gardens, featuring a 236-foot-long (72-meter-long) water mirror.
