This impressive property is situated in the charming hillside village of Grasse, the perfume capital of the world. The Duke of Valance built this property for his mistress in 1910. During World War II, the property was seized by the Germans and used as a lookout point due to the home’s location that allowed them to see everything near and far in the surrounding areas. The present owners have carefully restored this holiday villa to the highest of standards offering new, modern appliances while still maintaining the home’s character and history.
A few of the home’s original doors and the fireplace were salvaged and now add asophisticated authentic charm.
