The Hôtel particulier de Lauzun, a hidden jewel on the Ile Saint-Louis

Built in the 17th century, the Hôtel particulier de Lauzun has been restored and transformed several times, retaining today its 1,310 square meters of splendor, evoking the opulence of Venetian palaces. French-style sculpted ceilings, gilded woodwork, murals and mirrors decorate its two floors. A succession of four rooms on the second floor, including a sumptuous music salon, transports you into a world of calm, luxury and voluptuousness.

On the north wall of the hotel, a unique sundial catches the eye. More than just a sundial, it's a meridian, operational only from eleven in the morning to two in the afternoon. Its charm lies in the fact that it is impossible to indicate the time outside this range, due to the limited sunlight available in the courtyard.

The Hôtel particulier de Lauzun, a testament to time and culture, continues to fascinate visitors with its rich history and diverse uses. This hidden treasure on the Île Saint-Louis remains a must-see for lovers of history, art and mystery.
