Jean Cocteau ( Closed - No opening date planned yet)
The house is an old dependence of the castle, formerly called the Governor’s house. It’s a dead end street closed by a Romanesque double-gateway. Flanked by two bi-coloured turrets, its façade is in Louis the 13th style. The façade and the corresponding roof were registered in 1969 on the additional inventory of Historic monuments.
Charmed by Milly-la-Foret, Jean Cocteau bought the house with Jean Marais in 1947 and lived there until his death in 1963. He said that it was in Milly that he discovered the rarest thing in the world: an environment.
Many personalities form the art world such as Picasso, Satie, were received in this property. Jean Cocteau died in this house on October the 11th, 1963. The house is open to the public since June, 2010.
Jean Cocteau’s house shelters old furnitures, some of his works of art, but also works of Picasso, Berard, Warhol, Modigliani, Man-Ray….Then you’ll enter the universe of the poet by discovering his lounge, his office and his room.
