Homes in Saint-Nom-La-Bretèche: a close-up look at Villa Galassia

The former home of a leader in the luxury real estate market, Villa Galassia, located just outside the Saint-Nom-la-Bretèche golf course, is one of the trendiest properties in Les Yvelines.

Homes in Saint-Nom-La-Bretèche: a close-up look at Villa Galassia


You don’t just stumble into buying a home in Saint-Nom-la-Bretèche. Located in between the plains of Versailles and Marly Forest, this small, verdant town has mastered the art of remaining inconspicuous while also offering all the benefits of country life just 20 minutes from the capital city. Highly sought-after for its two top-notch, 18-hole golf courses and located far off the beaten path of the typical tourist, the town’s real estate assets flourish behind the walls of its discreet properties, which are clustered around a church, two farms, a château, and the remnants of a manor house.

The golden age for big builders

The town’s rise was undoubtedly fuelled by the personal investment of Daniel Féau in 1959. This high-end real estate specialist built the golf course that ultimately made him famous and became a key stop along Europe’s professional golfing circuit. The circuit is frequented by the world’s top players and attracts the kind of prestigious partnerships that made the Trophée Lancôme the top must-see tournament for global jet-setters.

An exceptional property in every respect

Once Féau was ready to settle down in the area, he called on the services of architect Jacques Régnault, who built him a one-of-a-kind villa that reflected his image and matched his status as an iconic entrepreneur. Counted as one of the most beautiful homes for sale in Les Yvelines, the property was later purchased and remodelled by Daniel Filipacci, the former president of the Hachette Group. Later, the home became the favourite French getaway for a wealthy Mexican buyer, who renamed it in honour of his daughter, which is why Villa Galassia can now be found on Rue Daniel Féau.

A home surrounded by legend

If you’re in the market for a new home in France, why not follow in their footsteps and purchase one in Les Yvelines? The surrounding towns of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Marly-le-Roi, Le Chesnay, Louveciennes, La-Celle-Saint-Cloud, Le Vésinet, and Versailles have their own merits, advantages, and a prestigious past, but Saint-Nom-la-Bretèche has become the number-one destination for golfers, in no small part thanks to this villa’s many attractive features. Located in a small, tree-lined valley featuring an 11,4 hectare English-style garden, the property offers an panoramic view over the entire region. The house offers 866 m² of floor space, 20 rooms, five receiving rooms with bay windows as well as high-end furniture and paintings, an attached dining room, a kitchen, five rooms overlooking the fairway, five bathrooms, a library, an office, a gym, and a cinema—not to mention a building permit for a pool and a wellness pavilion. In short, everything you need to write your own saga in the coming years!
