Description

At the tip of Cap d’Antibes, on a superb plot of 11 hectares, you will find the villa Eilenroc. This exceptional residence symbolizes the luxury and voluptuousness of the Belle Epoque. It was built in 1867 following plans by Charles Garnier, the architect of the Paris and Monte Carlo opera houses.
The park surrounding the villa is planted with traditional species of the Mediterranean landscape. At the heart of this conservation area, a public rose garden offers the fragrances and essences of its thousands of varieties, mostly created in Antibes Juan-les-Pins, the capital of roses.
In 2011, a scented garden was also created at the entrance to the rose garden. In addition, the coastal path allows a 3.7 km walk from the beach of the villa Eilenroc to the Garoupe Bay. Walkers can enjoy the breathtaking panoramic view along the Cap d’Antibes and the Villa or make a stop at the small beach l’Anse de l’Argent Faux.
