Villa breathtaking views
On the Mediterranean coast, between Nice and Monaco, the Villa is one of the most extraordinary monuments on the Riviera. Built between 1902 and 1908 in the period the French call the “Belle Epoque”.
An inspired architect ingeniously managed to subtly incorporate the modern comfort of villas from the Belle Epoque era into the luxurious setting of a classical ancient villa. For example, the bath in the Balaneion (thermal baths) was filled with water using the taps hidden under round grates and the action of the astonishing folding piano designed by Pleyel is hidden in a case made from the wood of a lemon tree.The Villa is a magical place offering visitors a view of living history, not only of ancient country but also of the Belle Epoque.
