This is a mosaic house. There are many stories in the world where some people just devote their lives to an entire project for no discernible reason. In this case Raymonde Isidore left behind a monument – a house and a garden made of murals of broken crockery, sculpture, and paintings. It’s not just crazy that he thought of doing it but that he’s achieved so much. It took him almost 26 years to complete this project.
The house itself is thin and long; it’s not very big. Every piece of art here is very delicately executed. The murals don’t just cover the walls, they also cover the furniture and the crockery. It is almost impossible to describe the place but just make sure to check out the following:
- The walls
- That two Chapels
- The black garden with a raised gothic tomb
- The courtyard
Around 30,000 people visit every year.

A house that became famous by a man who decorated it with bits of broken plates, glass... Inside and outside, and a wonderful garden
Brilliant and interesting place! The artwork is incredible!
So beautiful! I was a bit skeptical about it, but when I finally saw it, I loved it. The garden is also amazing. A must see.
Fascinating little 'maison' :)
A jewel of a place!
