The Villa's story begins at the turn of the 20th century when Prince Nicolas Vlassov decided to build it as a tribute to Hortense de Beauharnais, Napoleon I's daughter-in-law.
A fervent admirer of Queen Hortense, the mysterious Russian Prince acquired furniture that once belonged to the woman who became the wife of Louis Bonaparte, the Emperor's younger brother and King of Holland, to decorate his new house: a silver-plated copper bathtub with balusters (still in working order in a bedroom on the 1st floor), bronze locks, decorative Versailles-style parquet...
The ghost of Queen Hortense, mother of Emperor Napoleon III, drifts happily around this seaside house where time seems to have stopped. The listed Villa was transformed into a charming hotel with every modern convenience, while retaining the memories that make this place so special.
