The Hôtel de Sully is an hôtel particulier, or private mansion, in the Louis XIII style, located in the Marais, IV arrondissement, Paris. It is located at 62 rue Saint-Antoine. It is the seat of the Centre des monuments nationaux, the French national organization responsible for state-owned historic buildings and sites.HistoryThe financier Mesme Gallet built the hôtel, with gardens and an orangery, between 1625 and 1630. The building was designed by the architect Jean Androuet du Cerceau. The site was chosen to give access to the Place Royale - today the Place des Vosges - and was located in the Marais, at the time a fashionable district of Paris.Maximilien de Béthune, Duke of Sully, and former Superintendent of Finances to King Henri IV, purchased the hôtel on 23 February 1634. He completed the redecoration of the hôtel, and spent his last years living there. His grandson Maximilien commissioned the architect François Le Vau (younger brother of the more famous French architect Louis Le Vau) to build an additional wing in 1660, to the west of the garden. The Hôtel de Sully still bears the name of this family, who owned the building into the 18th century.

  • Stumbled upon this hidden gem, it was so beautiful and serene. It would be nice to spend some time just sitting on one of the benches.
  • Another version of Jardin du Palais Royal to me! A hidden gem in bustling Paris and busy Le Marais. Definitely worth visiting if you love outdoor garden and French architecture.
