Villa Majorelle reviews
We were so disappointed to be refused entrance. We had a single day in Nancy and were not made aware of the need to pre-book. It would be better if they kept some limited small number of tickets even.... more »
Very nice attraction. Unfortunately we saw it only from outside because it was going under reconstruction. Get a guide to hear all the nice stories. more »
Very nice art nouveau villa, but closed for visit now till 2019, so we have only seen the outside, and that is already marvellous!
A must see Art Nouveau house. But currently you only go into 3 rooms, all downstairs. There seems to be alot of the building given over to offices. The path round the outside is so close to the house you're craning your neck up to try to see the exterior. Make sure you cross the street to have a proper look!
