M Camondo had wealth and used it with great discretion to create his mansion, a dramatic 'hommage' to 18th century French taste. A must-see!
The house is by far not so abundantly decorated nor impressive as jacquemart-andre. But the family story is interesting, and the buffon porcelain with imaginative and with real birds from the magnificant buffon guide of natural history is beautiful. The museum is quiet. The house breaths the original early 19th century atmosphere.

Found this in a travel guide about walking tours and had no idea what is was. Did a little research and was really glad I made the stop. The house is left just as the family kept it.
