A visit to Santo Sospir allows the visitor to conjure up a detailed impression of an extraordinary time. Being a house museum the visitor gets close to and appreciated this site in a marvellous way. this is a fabulous visit and allows one to get close to Cocteau and his circle. And what a complex man he was.

When I did it, tours were still organized by an offshoot of the original landlord full of anedocts. You can visit a small beautiful house decorated by Jean Cocteau.

If you have any interest in the art of Jean Cocteau, this is a must see. The villa interior has most of its walls decorated by Cocteau. The resident caretaker gives a guided tour (excellent English). Even if the art is not for you, it's still worth a visit as the Villa, time warped in the 1950's has such a... More
