Line Renaud’s Secret Paradise
Line Renaud, who is celebrating her 95th birthday this Sunday, July 2, 2023, lives in a mansion located on the heights of Rueil-Malmaison, in the Hauts-de-Seine. A secret paradise, with a very strong identity. Indeed, the half-timbered facade and the small tile roof are recognizable among a thousand.
A Luxuriant Garden
This place is nicknamed La Jonchère due to the strong vegetation that reigns there. Indeed, one finds there a luxuriant garden, in which notably lives a majestic cedar of Lebanon of more than ten meters. “It was the first tree we planted, offered by Michel Audiard in 1952,” the actress told the Parisien in 2018, who fell under the spell of this house seventy years ago, with her husband Loulou Gasté.
A View of La Défense and Paris
What has also changed is the view of La Défense and Paris. It has been blocked, the fault of the large sequoia from the Yellowstone Park planted in 1964. “We baptized it with champagne, we didn’t think it would grow. I can’t cut it, it’s my little corner of America,” the actress told our colleagues, who also has in her garden fruit trees, an alley of pear trees in U, the alley Simone, the name of her mother, as well as large beds of roses and lavender and beautiful lawns impeccably mowed. Moreover, she who had not hesitated to host Muriel Robin and Anne Le Nen in this beautiful house (while the work on their new villa just next door was completed) does not hesitate to share sublime photos of her at La Jonchère on her Instagram account.
