Situated in the 8th arrondissement, near the Parc Monceau, it was home to Comte Moïse de Camondo, a well-known Parisian banker and passionate collector of 18th-century French furniture and art.

In 1911, he hired architect Rene Sergent to build a private mansion next to Parc Monceau that would be worthy of this collection and suitable for his family. The design was modeled after the Petit Trianon in Versailles. The rooms of this private mansion are filled with the finest art works, furniture and decorative pieces, it is hard to imagine it as a home, and to some extend it was not, it was an reception space. The property, which is fully preserved in its original condition, offers an opportunity to discover the taste of a great collector and to get a glimpse of the everyday life of an aristocratic home in the heart of Paris.
