Travel Inspiration | Places: La Villa Eilenroc, Cap d'Antibes

@dana_chels

The piano lessons on the third floor of my building have started again, the terraces on my street are open again and the streets are filled again with everybody going back at work. And while I love Paris with its endless beauty and inspiration, this summer, I fell in love even more with the South of France, which showed me again that a peaceful and relaxed lifestyle changes the quality of life.

The days I spent in the south this time were slightly different from the other occasions when I visited La Côte. I wanted to be more in contact with the nature, distanced from the crowds and the city, so I’ve been walking around Saint-Jean Cap-Ferrat, Cap d’Antibes and Ile de Sainte Marguerite.

Envoûté by the perfume of pine trees and the sound of cicadas, I arrived at La Villa Eilenroc...

This villa was built in 1867 following plans by Charles Garnier (the architect of the Paris and Monte Carlo opera houses) in Antibes Juan-les-Pins, once known as the capital of roses.

“Before the eruption of the war in 1939, Villa Eilenroc was one of the grandest homes in the French Riviera. Guests included the Valentinos, Greta Garbo, European royalty and kings of industry. Should you receive an invitation to a dinner party, you might have found yourself taking a seat between Begum Aga Khan and Florence Gould, and facing the Fitzgeralds and Duke and Duchess of Windsor, who often stayed in the neighbouring property that now belongs to Roman Abramovich.” ―Riviera Insider

Dana is a fragile dreamer, they say, arriving in Paris four years ago, for love, and the city has been constantly changing her life since then. Hers is a world of books, (Marguerite Duras, Simone de Beauvoir, Anne Berest), expos, long walks sur les quais de Seine, pink skies, fine wine and peonies.
