La Lanterne

Versailles, Île-de-France

Built in 1787, for Philippe Louis de Noailles (1752-1819), Prince-Duc de Poix, who lost both his parents to the guillotine in 1794 during the Revolution. It is situated next to the Palace of Versailles and from 1959 to 2007 it was the official second residence of the Prime Ministers of France. From 2007, President Sarkozy allocated it for the use of the Presidents of France and it was here in 2008 that he held his wedding dinner on the occasion of his marriage to Carla Bruni. In 1929, Mrs Dahlgren, who lived between New York and France, built Champ Soleil, directly inspired by La Lanterne.
