L'hôtel Bretonvilliers, situé dans l'Île Saint-Louis, rue Bretonvilliers, nº 2, et quai de Béthune, dit autrefois quai des Balcons, avait été construit en 1642 par Androuet-Ducerceau pour Le Ragois de Bretonvilliers, président de la Chambre des comptes.
Bretonvilliers Hotel, located in the Ile Saint-Louis, Bretonvilliers street, No. 2, and Quai de Bethune, formerly known as balconies quay, was built in 1642 by Androuet-Ducerceau for Ragois of Bretonvilliers, chairman of the House accounts. He had been decorated by Vouet, and we could see paintings by Mignard, Poussin, Bourdon, etc.. All this has completely disappeared, as the greater part of the hotel, which, from 1719, housed the offices of the general farm, and in 1793 became the center of manufacture of arms established in Paris. Claude Le Ragois of Bretonvilliers, Secretary to the Council of King Louis XIII and financial "with interests in farms," had erected between 1637 and 1642, a palace with garden terrace overlooking the Seine. This housing complex created on the plans of the architect Jean Androuet Du Cerceau, and added six reporting hotels designed by the architect Peter The Mute, occupied the entire eastern tip of Ile Saint Louis. This was one of the most prestigious aristocratic hotel in Paris in the seventeenth century. Its interior involved orders to the workshops of great artists: Simon's Vouet for a firm in 1643 or that of Sebastien Bourdon for the first floor gallery of the twenty years later. The first of these contractors had already made significant sites for Claude de Bullion in 1634 (Hotel de Bullion), then to the chancellor Seguier from 1636 (hotel Seguier). We also noted in the salons of the hotel Bretonvilliers works of Poussin and Mignard (Dulaure). From 1719, the family Bretonvilliers, which was no longer the hotel, rented rooms to the General Farm. The latter moved in the "general aid office”, responsible for collecting taxes on beverages and foods. We then regrouped on the Ile Saint-Louis "Management of helps and entering in Paris” with office with of the" Receiver General of helps and areas of France”. At that time, the East India Company, Association of Financers, managed the regulation governing the General Farm. One of its directors, the general farmer Marino Hague, interested in the affairs of governance of aid, had rented the farm offices in the hotel Bretonvilliers.
