Around Villa Eilenroc in Cap d’Antibes…


If you read Eilenroc backwards, it says Cornelie. That was the name of the wife of the Dutch man who built this neoclassical palace on an 11 hectare plot. Charles Garnier, who was the architect of the opera houses in Paris and Monaco, drew the plans. The astounding gardens were created in 1873 by the next owner, a Scot who was returning from India. In 1927, the property was bought by the Beaumonts who modernised it in the Belle Epoque fashion and hosted many high society parties. The inside of the house is currently undergoing some restoration work, but the famous path “Chemin des douaniers” runs along the property and offers delightful sights of the villa as well as spectacular sea views.

I did this walk one late afternoon in December and it was most pleasant, so you definitely don’t need to wait until summer to enjoy Antibes!
