The museum of Avelines, museum of art and history of Saint-Cloud, is installed since 1988 in an old villa which belonged to Daniel Brunet, an industrialist having made fortune in the pharmaceutical field.
The house, immaculate white, is nicknamed "the little white house" borrowing from ancient Greco-Roman Doric columns supporting the atrium. This one, main entrance of the house, marks its excessiveness and impresses the guests of the time. The cupola, 12 meters higher, open to the light, overlooks a bronze statue, a copy of the house of the Pompeii Fauna .
In 1981, we shoot first films including " Tout Feu, tout flamme " by Jean-Paul Rappeneau with Isabelle Adjani, Lauren Hutton and Yves Montant. Thus, the villa is the setting for other cult film shoots. In 1986, the city of Saint-Cloud decided to turn it into a museum dedicated to local history by entrusting the architect François Hacq, its renovation. The ambition today is to make this "museum-house" an enchanting place.
Located in the heart of the Avelines Museum's rotunda, the restaurant / tea room brings a final gourmet touch to this journey through time and history. It is a real place of life and hospitality. Lovers of good products, we offer a bistronomic menu made from fresh seasonal AOC products, 60% of the Ile de France region. Our menu evolves with the seasons to offer you a cuisine full of flavors.
