An illustrious past, present and future 4
XVII century

The seventeenth-century era

According to what Marquis de Rochegude reported, famous landscape architect André Le Nôtre (1613 – 1700) – a courtier of the Sun King, inventor of the French formal garden as well as designer of the Gardens of Versailles – had a country house right close to the hotel. Le Nôtre loved living in this area because of its quiet, secluded position.

From Rue de Joinville to Rue du Cirque

In 1847, after the fall of the “July Monarchy” (1830-1848), the historic Rue de Joinville – where today is located the Splendide – is renamed Rue du Cirque because of the summer circus erected in Marigny des Champs-Élysées Square (demolished around the year 1900).

In the beginning a hôtel particulier

The building now housing the Hotel Splendide is born in 1897 as hôtel particulier, a word which identifies a typical Parisian house, large and luxurious, where a single family lives. Pierre Cardin, the famous cutting-edge stylist who died in 2020, was the owner of many real estates in Paris, including the building that houses the Splendide.
