Presentation
Belvedere is the name of the house in Montfort l'Amaury (Yvelines) and composer Maurice Ravel lived for sixteen years from 1921 until the year of his death at a clinic in Paris in 1937. This relatively modest house cramped and takes its name from its location on a hillside and the view it offers of the city of Montfort l'Amaury and Rambouillet forest in the background.

It was in this house that the composer created nearly all his works from 1921, including The Child and the Spells, madécasses the songs, the famous Boléro, Concerto in G for Piano and Orchestra, Concerto for hand left.

The house, inherited by the brother of musician Edward Ravel (1878-1960), was entrusted by him to guard Celeste Albaret, former housekeeper of Marcel Proust, from 1954 to 1970. In accordance with the will of Edward Ravel 1958 the Belvedere was bequeathed to the RMN in 1971 and converted into a museum, which was granted by lease for mayor of Montfort-Amaury.
