Bonne soirée au XVIIIè siècle !

Musée Lambinet Versailles
Musée Lambinet has undergone a big 'makeover' since VDP's last visit in 2010. An absolutely delightful walk through an evening atmosphere of an XVIIIth century home is now possible and VDP had a blast! It really felt like a winter moment in the beautiful town house (with its original features) built from 1751 onwards for Joseph-Barnabé Porchon by architect Elie Blanchard where before there was nothing but a pond!

Le musée Lambinet a fait l'objet de travaux depuis la dernière visite de VDP en 2010. Une délicieuse promenade du soir est proposée aux visiteurs dans une atmosphère feutrée, telle un voyage dans le temps ! On se croit véritablement un soir d'hiver dans ce bel hôtel particulier, qui a conservé ses éléments d'époque, construit à partir de 1751 sur un étang asséché par Elie Blanchard pour un entrepreneur des bâtiments du roi, Joseph-Barnabé Porchon.

It looks exquisitely beautiful! The harp's a good touch... and something you rarely see anywhere these days.

It's not my kind of place but it certainly projects a delightful elegance and an aura of lushness.

Drei wunderbare Fotos!
Schon mit Hilfe von einem Stativ gemacht, wohl nicht etwa freihändig...?
