Maison des Jardies à Sèvres

Gambetta’s house. 
Object bearing witness to an epoch.

This winegrower's house, built on the southern slopes of the Domaine de Saint-Cloud at the end of the 17th century, was converted into a country retreat in the early 19th century. 
It belonged to novelist Honoré de Balzac, and subsequently became the property of Léon Gambetta, the founder of the Third Republic, who bought the house in 1878 and died here four years later. The Maison des Jardies has retained its original decor and today recalls the life and work of this great statesman and combative republican.

Site with the “Illustrious Houses” label.
