Historical buildings

With the sea on one side, you can on the other hand experience some of Antibes historic and architectural famous buildings.

You can see them in that order: Chateau de la Garoupe from 1907, Chateau de la Croë from 1927, which for a time was the home of the Duke of Windsor and his infamous wife, Wallis Simpson (today owned by Roman Abramovich) and finally Villa Eilinroc from 1867. The villa was a gift to Antibes from its last owner, Hélène Beaumont, back in 1982 and beautifully represents the Belle Époque era in French history.
