Summer Evenings
On Mondays and Tuesdays from 5 July to 31 August

In July and August we will exceptionally open the villa at nightfall. On Mondays and Tuesdays, come and discover the villa and its gardens during evening events that will revive the magic of the golden days of the Riviera. The villa will be open from 7.45pm to 11.30pm, enabling visitors to discover the icon of the Riviera, where the wildest parties of Côte d’Azur took place. Alleys and basins of the French-style garden will be illuminated by hundreds of candles. 

Music, fountains, a bar, and candles will create the setting for a romantic and glamorous visit of the villa and some of its gardens.

The dancing performance "Les Lucioles de la Villa" features two dancers from the Ballet de Nice— dressed in illuminated dresses—interpreting choreographies in the setting of the garden’s pools. Concerts are organised every evening. 

Our restaurant offers packed lunches to take away and to enjoy in the gardens. A temporary champagne and wine bar is open on the marble terrace until 10pm.
