The name of this house comes from the contraction of "mauvais port", which means "cursed port". It is, indeed, in this spot, that the Normans landed in 856 and massacred the surrounding population, before being stopped by the army of Charles le Chauve.
This finely crafted house, characteristic of pastiches built under Napoleon III, was constructed at the request of Edmond Adolphe Le Pelletier de Bouhélier, journalist and collaborator at "la Réforme" and "Nain Jaune". In 1884, he fought a duel against Paul Viardot, the son of the famous singer Pauline Viardot whose villa is just above. Paul Viardot had been a little too attentive with Edmond's wife.
Edmond Adolphe le Pelletier de Bouhélier known as Edmond Lepelletier (1846-1913) was a French journalist, poet and politician. He was a childhood friend of Paul Verlaine.
He was deputy for the Seine from 1902 to 1906 and deputy mayor of Bougival.
