Handily located on the Promenade des Anglais, Villa Masséna is a wonderful example of Belle Epoque architecture.
Built at the turn of the 20th century by Danish architect Hans-George Tersling, it has a Neoclassical style with Italianate influences. Prince Victor of Essling, grandson of the local marshal André Masséna, lived here during winter.
It was gifted to the city in 1921 and has recently been renovated. It now displays interiors faithful to a reinterpretation of the Belle Epoque era and has beautifully landscaped gardens which have also been restored.
