Preserved as a historical monument since October 29, 1975, this impressive manor, distant from the seaside, was commissioned by the baron Henry de Rothschild. Passionate for horse races, he had chosen a venue situated close to the racecourse. The villa was built in 1907 on the area of the “Ferme du Coteau”, belonging to the novelist Gustave Flaubert’s family since 1837.
The profusion of architectural elements decorating the elevations (towers, bow windows, large ground-floor terrace) and roof projections (steep-faced roof, a lodge raised by a pyramid, imperial roof decorations) adorned with ceramic finials strengthen the picturesque character of this place.
External decorated details are in contrast with simple internal volumes. The entrance, oriented to the west, opens on a central hall conducting to smoking, living and dining room to the north, dining room for children, room and great staircase to the south. This staircase leads to the private apartments situated in the first floor; the back stairs are reserved to the house personnel.
Indoor, you can also admire the paintings and sculptures of artist Enrico Campagnola.
