Address 52 Av. Georges Clemenceau 78110 Le Vésinet, France

At 52 avenue Georges Clémenceau in Le Vésinet stands the beautiful Villa Beau-Chêne.

The Villa Beau-Chêne was built at the end of the 19th century in a Louis XIII style for a baroness on the plans of the architect Louis Gilbert. It also has a vast English-style park.

But its most illustrious owner remains Josephine Baker. In 1929, at the age of 23, she acquired this vast 12-room residence inaugurated in 1880.

The artist lived there until 1947. It was a place where she held large parties and where she also installed her menagerie composed of chickens, sheep, monkeys and Chiquita, her cheetah. The cage of the latter is still visible in the park.
