Hotel de lauzun Discover three centuries of history, and enter into the legend of the Golden Century. Who are the walkers along the banks of the Seine who know about this exceptional residence? Behind the heavy gates of number 17 of the Quai d'Anjou hides an architectural jewel. Composed of a string of rooms with gilded decorations and ceilings comparable to those of the castle of Vaux-le-Vicomte. The Hôtel de Lauzun, built in 1657 for the financier Charles Grüyn des Bordes, is the best preserved reception apartment of the Grand Siècle. This Parisian "Little Versailles" houses a unique collection of opulent decorations with a thousand fantasies. This exclusive private tour takes you to a place rarely open to the public. I will unveil its decorations: its superb gilded wrought-iron balcony, its main courtyard and sundial, the grand staircase, its splendid apartment in a row? I will tell you its history secrets: the financial intrigues of the court of Louis XIV; the orgies of the Duke of Lauzun, adventurer and lover of the king's cousin La Grande Mademoiselle; the "artificial paradises" of Charles Baudelaire and the crazy evenings of the Haschichin's club.
