Yes, that is what it is, a very colorful House. It is like you are in Children's world. Of course, once you start interpreting the Art and the thoughts behind it, it gets serious. But the colorful house brings a smile to your face. Beauty...More

What a fun, but unknown gem! Only an hour from Orleans where we were staying . There is some quaint shops , a beautiful cathedral and excellent crepes close by in the town of Chartres. Worth adding to your say

A real eye opener into the amount of love and dedication that the gentleman put into the making of this house decorated with pieces of broken crockery. A truly mystical experience. Can't recommend it enough

This is a medieval town with people still living in the buildings. They do have electricity. The streets are very narrow. Every now and then we would be surprised by a car coming down the street. The streets are barely wide enough for one car!

Don't stand still you may get tiled. One mans obsession lives on as a quirky place to visit. Everything is mosaic. We visited in September 2016 and it was 5:60 euro per adult and spent about 90 minutes there.

Just a short walk from the centre of Chartres La Maison Picassiette is worth seeing for sure. It's an odd little tourist attraction / work of art. The detail and imagination behind the work is truly impressive, and the little garden is delightful. It won't...More

Make sure you don't miss this when you come to Chartres--it is well worth the detour (not located in city center). It's not big, true, but goodness, how could it be with the amount of work that it must have taken just to create it?...More
