This former holiday home of the Rothschild family is a great place to get away from the maddening crowds. Serene and cool, you can get on with you work except when the kids from the local school decide to hold impromptu discos on the steps. There seems to be no authority there to deal with them.

Although now a library, this cilla is absolutely stunning and qorth a look to see what an authentic villa of the era actually feels like. It is also a nice place to go and read or study on a wet day when not much else is going on.

The Mediatheque de Noailles in Cannes is a hidden gem that represents the 19th century architectural designs. Originally built and owned by the Rothchild family and then bought by Cannes Municipality after WWII to turn to a library. This amazing building and surrounding gardens deserve more attention, efforts and promotion among tourists. A lovely place to be in in a... More

The garden is great and well done with some interesting information... More

The mediatheque is situated in a very nice building with a parc in front of it. Not only can you go there with kids to borrow books, listen to music and stroll in the big garden - they also organize aperos on some evenings. On top of all that, during the film festival they arrange concerts every day, for free!... More
