The stunning villas ans views

of Beauvallon estate

– The “Vent d’Aval” villa: a statuesque house built in 1928 by the architect Pierre Chareau. It stands in vast gardens and its functional organisation plays with contrast. This villa is listed as a Historical Monument of regional interest and has also carried the ‘20th-century Heritage’ label since 1 March 2001.

– The “La Seynave” villa: is a prefabricated house designed in 1961 by the architect Jean Prouvé. Beams of steel rest above metal porticoes or modules of concrete. The entire villa is covered by a pleated aluminium roof. The partitions and walls are built from alternating lightweight mahogany features and wide patio doors – this construction principle creates a bright, flexible interior that communicates well with the surroundings. This villa is listed as a Historical Monument of regional interest and has also carried the ‘20th-century Heritage’ label since 1 March 2001.

The Chapel

This chapel was built at the same time as the Domaine de Beauvallon.

In front of the chapel stands a bust of Emile Bernheim (1851-1930), the estate’s creator. It was sculpted by the artist Chana Orloff.
