At the end of the Cap d'Antibes, on a beautiful 11 hectare site, is Villa Eilenroc.
This exceptional home symbolizes the luxury and voluptuousness of the Belle Epoque.
It was built in 1867 according to the plans of Charles Garnier, architect of the Paris and Monte Carlo opera houses.
The park that surrounds the Villa is decorated with traditional species of the Mediterranean landscape. At the heart of this veritable plant conservatory, the rose garden offers the public the fragrances and essences of its thousands of varieties, created mostly in Antibes Juan-les-Pins, capital of the rose.
In 2011, a garden of scents was also created at the entrance to the rose garden. In addition, the coastal trail allows you to take a 3.7 km walk between the beach of Villa Eilenroc and Anse de la Garoupe. You can walk around and enjoy the exceptional panorama along the Cap d'Antibes and the Villa or stop in the small beach of anse de l'Argent faux.
It is a very nice getaway, still little known to the general public.
Its visit is possible every Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., and on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Price: 2 euros (free for under 12s)
Admission to Villa Eilenroc is free from October 1 to March 31, for adults and children alike.
