Hôtel Lulli. C’est à Daniel Gittard que Jean-Baptiste Lulli confia en 1670 la construction de son hôtel. Molière lui prêta 11 000 livres pour acheter le terrain et le faire bâtir. Lui fit sculpter sur la façade de la rue Sainte-Anne une timbale, des trompettes, des cornets, une guitare, des partitions, ses attributs de musicien, et fit somptueusement décorer l’intérieur de boiseries et de peintures des écoles de Boullongne et de Le Pautre, afin de donner à sa demeure le même luxe qu’étalaient celles des grands seigneurs du voisinage. Resté en possession des descendants de Lulli jusqu’en 1807, l’hôtel a perdu aujourd’hui l’essentiel de sa décoration intérieure.

English translation: "Hotel Lulli. In 1670 Jean-Baptiste Lulli entrusted the construction of his hotel to Daniel Gitlate. Molière lent him £11,000 to buy the land and build it. He had him carved a timbale, trumpets, cones, guitar, sheet music, his attributes as a musician on the façade of Rue Sainte-Anne, and sumptuously decorated the interior of woodwork and paintings from the schools of Boullongne and Le Pautre, in order to give his remains the same luxury as those of the great seigneurs of the neighborhood. The hotel remained in possession of the descendants of Lulli until 1807 and today lost most of its interior decoration. [AWS Translate]"
