Seeing the Hilltop Riviera Domaine for the first time, you might quite justifiably think that it was result of several centuries of changes and additions. In fact the castle was built in exactly one year, in 1927. Couëlle, the famous architect, visionary and ecologist, was only 26 years old in 1927 when he designed this building. It was just one of a series for which he was responsible in the region between the two World Wars. The Hilltop Riviera Domaine assembles architectural elements from the 12th, 15th and 16th centuries. These elements came from ruins in the Pyrenees and Provence, and in giving them a new life in a new building, he saved them from destruction.
Situated just west of Cannes, the Panormaic Artist's Castle occupies a magnificent seafront site first settled by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago. Originally erected by the Villeneuve family during the 14th century, the fortress was destroyed and rebuilt eight times before it was transformed into a glass factory in the 19th century. In 1918, the American artist Henry Clews acquired the ruined property, which he restored with his wife, Marie Elsie Whelen Goelet. Two towers, Saracen and Romanesque, were integrated into the walled complex ; a turreted gatehouse, tall ramparts and sea view terraces reflect the Clews’ own eclectic taste.
The castle is an architectural masterpiece. Often considered to be a “Little Versailles”, it is conveniently located less than an hour away from Paris. This castle perfectly combines the exclusivity of a royal estate with its proximity and easy access to Paris
