Hôtel de Béhague

Tour Eiffel - Invalides - 7e Arrondissement

Description

The Hôtel de Béhague has housed the Romanian embassy since 1939. Like many embassies and consulates, it is situated in the same district as the Eiffel Tower and the Hôtel des Invalides, a few blocks away from the elegant Champ-de-Mars. Built in 1867, this private residence possesses some real treasures: a monumental staircase decorated in polychrome marble, a François Boucher painting, a ballroom, a Louis XIV-style wooden staircase, a perfectly preserved 19th century library and a garden rich in sculptures and statues. But the area that best characterizes the Hôtel de Béhague and which gave it its nickname 'Byzantium of the 7th arrondissement' is the private theatre. With its porphyry columns and Byzantine mosaics, it is the emblem of the place. Like many administrative buildings, you have to wait until the European Heritage Days to have the opportunity to visit this beautiful private residence.
