Private Mansion of Lauzun

Monument in Paris

The Lauzun Hotel, sometimes also referred to as the Pimodan Hotel, is located at 17 Quai d'Anjou, on the north shore of Île Saint-Louis, in the 4th arrondissement of Paris.

This mansion designed by the architect Charles Chamois was built in 1658 for the financier Charles Gruyn. Its interior decoration is the work of Michel Dorigny whose many original paintings and frescoes have been preserved.

The building was then bought by the Duke of Lauzun in 1682, then by the Marquis de Richelieu and various owners have succeeded one another until the Marquis de la Vallée de Pimodan who lived there during the Revolution. Restored by the bibliophile and collector Jerome Pichon in the nineteenth century, the hotel de Lauzun remained famous for having housed the poet Charles Baudelaire from 1843 to 1845 who lived in an apartment overlooking the courtyard, but also the writer Théophile Gautier who invited his friends poets club Hashischins.

Property of the city of Paris since 1928, classified since 1906, the mansion is now the headquarters of the Institute of Advanced Studies Paris which hosts in residence researchers in the humanities.

Architecturally, the exterior facade has a wrought iron balcony. At the inner courtyard, there are three facades and a blind wall decorated with arcades.

A richly decorated sundial is visible on the north side facing courtyard.

The hotel Lauzun is open to the public for guided tours that allow you to discover ceremonial rooms, beautifully decorated living rooms and the Baudelaire room, among others.
