Villa Vigier

Viscount Vigier's neo-Venetian style villa was demolished in 1967 but the park that surrounded it remains.

Designed by Jean-Pierre Barillet-Deschamps, the latter was in charge, at the same time, of the landscaping of Paris, in connection with Baron Haussmann. Viscount Vigier made his garden a renowned laboratory of rare plants where rich winterers came to stock up. Some of the palms are considered to be the first specimens on the coast.
