  • The Fayet Mansion House was built in the XVII and then enlarged in the XIX century. It's one of the most beautiful architectural gems of Béziers. Originally owned by the Fayet family, including Gustave a wealthy entrepreneur, collector and painter, this elegant mansion contained, first, a large artist’s studio before being transformed into a museum once the building has been sold to the township in 1966.

    The Fayet Mansion House was built in the XVII and then enlarged in the XIX century. It's one of the most beautiful architectural gems of Béziers. Originally owned by the Fayet family, including Gustave a wealthy entrepreneur, collector and painter, this elegant mansion contained, first, a large artist’s studio before being transformed into a museum once the building has been sold to the township in 1966.

    Former headquarters of the old Art Museum, the Fayet private mansion is exhibiting part of the extraordinary collection of XIX century old paintings, from the romantic period until the III French Republic academic painters, including Delacroix, Géricault, Corot or Cabanel. The core collection of Jean-Antoine Injalbert from Béziers constitutes one of its other attractions. As a neo-baroque artist, Injalbert has been one of the most sought sculptors of his time. His incomparable talent as a modeler can be seen through the presentation of his preparatory works and sketches.

  • Un merveilleux petit musée

    Surtout si vous visitez Béziers ne manquez pas le musée Fayet rue du Capus il contient des trésors surprenants et inestimables !

  • A place for quiet contemplation

    Besides has numerous attractions for a small city. Hotel Fayet is a wee jewel in the crown. If it is wet outside or if it is too hot, use an hour or three in here. A beautiful old townhouse and some beautiful pieces to view. Fans of Injalbert will find many of his works here. Besides has many, many more artworks in storage and I hope that plans come to fruition, to display them once again. The Hotel Fayet is only 2 minutes walk from the Tourist Office. Staff very helpful and have good English.
