The Élysée Palace is the official residence of the President of the French Republic.

It is located on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré near the Champs-Élysées in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, the name Élysée deriving from the Elysian Fields, the place of the blessed dead in Greek mythology. Important foreign visitors are hosted at the nearby Hôtel de Marigny, a palatial residence.

The palace has been the home of personalities such as Madame de Pompadour, Nicolas Beaujon, Bathilde d'Orléans, Joachim Murat, and Charles Ferdinand, Duke of Berry. On 12 December 1848 under the Second Republic the French Parliament passed a law declaring the building the official residence of the President of France.
