The Hôtel Guyot, now renamed the Maison Belle Époque, is one of the most impressive examples of brand showcases on Avenue de Champagne because the house is exceptionally well preserved. It is owned by the House of Perrier-Jouët.

Maison Belle Epoque

Constructed between 1795 and 1797 by Jean Guyot, the building's architecture is quite similar to that of other mansions on Avenue de Champagne, and almost identical to the Hôtel Papelard (formerly Camiat), in this way forming a trio along with Hôtel Moët. The Maison Belle Époque is also in perfect harmony with the avenue's other mansions because of its U-shaped design. 

In 1872, the mansion was acquired by the Perrier-Jouët Champagne House.

In 1964, sales director Pierre Ernst and cellar master André Baveret rediscovered a series of bottles that had been hand-decorated with arabesque anemones in 1902 by Emile Gallé (1846-1904), and had never been put on sale. 

They decided to relaunch production and make this the design for the prestigious Belle Époque vintage.

They converted the mansion into a guesthouse whose design pays homage to Art Nouveau and Emile Gallé. The interior was redesigned by Parisian designer Patrice Nourissat in the 1980s. The mansion contains one of the largest private collections of Art Nouveau furniture and decorations (including furniture by Hector Guimard, Louis Majorelle and Emile Gallé, sculptures by Rodin and Carabin, and engravings by Mucha). 

Following a painstaking renovation from 2015 to 2017, this Art Nouveau gem now welcomes guests to the House of Perrier-Jouët.
