Home Jean Cocteau

Jean Cocteau acquired this house in 1947, and lived in it until his death in 1963. Novelist, filmmaker, poet, playwright, painter, multi-faceted artist, Jean Cocteau left a mark on the history of the arts of the twentieth century. In Milly-la-Forêt, after the filming of Beauty and the Beast, he found a refuge, far from the hustle and bustle of Paris, where he created for himself and his friends a world that resembled him: eclectic, mysterious and poetic. Preserving this house is a way to better understand the richness and uniqueness of Jean Cocteau. The tour of the rooms of the house, which have remained intact, allows an approach of Cocteau’s daily life, with the idea of making his presence as sensitive as tangible. The guides lead you and tell you the story of the objects, of the rooms and of the man who lived in them and loved them. Two exhibitions complete this presentation and can be visited freely, on the animal figures that inhabit the house and echo the work of the poet, and on the ballet Parade, an avant-garde masterpiece of the early 20th century.
