IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Guided tours of the Housing Unit must be booked online (except for groups). Telephone booking will not be accepted.

WARNING: for security reasons, the number of visitors admitted in a guided tour is very restricted. It is therefore mandatory to book for every person present in the guided tour. This includes visitors who have free access, infants and children under 8.

To ensure the smooth running of the tour, it is mandatory to present yourself with your printed ticket at the front desk of the Cultural Centre 15 minutes before the departure. After this deadline, your participation to the visit won’t be assured.

You will use your own vehicule for the transportation between the Cultural Centre and the Housing Unit. If you come with the train or bus, please inform us by phone or email, so we can provide an alternative solution.

 

CAUTION The morning guided tour of the Cultural Centre and the church is available only in French. The “Le Corbusier Pass” is therefore not recommended to non-French speaking visitors. If you wish to discover the whole site, we advise you to choose the Discovery Pass and visit the other buildings with an English booklet that you will be given at the front desk.

 

Visitors with reduced mobility are invited to contact the site before their visit in order to ensure the best possible conditions. Please note, that despite many facilities, some spaces of the listed buildings remain inaccessible with a wheelchair (show-appartment, mezzanine floors…).
