In July and August the villa is supposed to be open Wednesday afternoons and second and fourth Saturdays. I think it's scheduled to be opened Tuesdays and Wednesdays the rest of the year. However, I've tried to visit 3 times over the past few years and each time it has been closed when it should have been open. The first... More

Nothing really to see in the empty house, rose garden very nice and a good woodland surrounding the villa, we did the lot in 30 minutes, there is a small cove with a pebbled beach just down from the villa, a nice little place for a swim ( watch out for jellyfish ).

First the good news: it was actually OPEN (currently Wednesdays and 1st/3rd Saturday of the month, 14.00-17.00); and it only costs 2 euros. So what is there to see? The ground floor of the villa is open, but the rooms are pretty bare with very little explanation and no room guides (although to be fair they wouldn't have much to... More

The rose garden is magnificent. Hardly a weed to be found and no black spot on the leaves. Huge care and attention. All roses in full bloom.

We have visited this house and park on many occasions over the past twenty years. It is one of the best sites on Cap d'Antibes and should be a major attraction. The house is a beautiful example of its kind but, as other reviewers have remarked, it is sadly neglected by staff, who have little or no interest in its... More

The place - the building and the view and nature are fabulous. You can imagine the time when artists and famous american ex-pats spend their golden summers in Riviera and in this villa. Would truelly hope that the Antibes county would work a little more for this place inherited from Mme Beaumont. Could be so much more with a little... More

Don't expect a National Trust experience. The house is virtually empty, there are no nice guides in each room eager to explain to you enthusiastically the history of the villa and the grounds are neglected. There is also no tea room, restaurant or an audioguide. Having said that, this is one of the view bell époque villas open to the... More

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.
