Always passed by by bicycle...

in front of this monument - from the time i was a kid and i stil love it. Old times meets nothing because life in the cab d'antibes still feels like a 1930s experience.

The staff here exists only in the physical sense. Don't expect even the slightest of direction regarding the property/history etc & if you can't read French, forget about it entirely. The grounds were cool to see, despite the lack of context beforehand. Usually would have done some research before, to understand what the significance of the property was besides the... More

This must have been a truly beautiful place once. Sadly, this is no longer true. Only the ground floor is open - and even then, most of the original furniture has long since disappeared (lost, mislaid or even half-inched?) The grounds, however, are beautiful. The staff were not the friendliest, however and their notices at the main gate are very... More

This mansion is worth visiting. It has a fabulous location and with a lovely garden. Be aware that it is not open every day so do check the opening days.

Overlooking "millionaires" bay visiting this house gives you a great feel of how the rich and famous lived on the Cote. The grounds are a bit neglected and the house is rather empty, but it is nevertheless worth going and admiring the scenery .

The Villa Eilenroc is architecturally one of the most beautiful villas of the Cote d'Azur. Built in 1865 in the style of the Petit Trianon it enjoys an unrivalled site overlooking the aquamarine waters of the bay. Next door is Villa La Croe, sometime home of Wallis Simpson and her husband Edward VII . Unfortunately the last owner Mme Beaumont... More

This villa is located on prime property in the Cap d'Antibe. You can take a hike (5km) from the plage de Garoupe along the rugged coast or take the bus to arrive. If you take a hike bring water as there is no amenities along the path. The path is not open on rainy and windy days the gate will... More

A great way to view the scenery of Cap d'Antibes. Stunning view. If you come on the first or third Saturday of the month, you might get to see the villa too

This is stately old home that is now accessible as a museum piece, situated on several acres of gardens. Most of the gardens are in a basic state of care, but the rose gardens are beautiful. Well worth the miserable EUR 2 per person to get into the site and wander about
