Opening of the Maison Cocteau

In 2002, Pierre Bergé funded the purchase of Jean Cocteau’s property in Milly-la-Forêt, which had lain abandoned for many years. He also funded the transformation of the site into a place commemorating Cocteau. It was Bergé’s way of honoring the man over whose work he has moral rights. The house underwent an extensive renovation before it opened its doors to the public in summer 2010.
