Roquebrune Cap Martin
Situated 4 kilometers from Menton and Monaco, this seaside resort rises to 300m. altitude on 933ha., starting at the water's edge and going all the way up to its perched village.
The history of Roquebrune Cap Martin is felt everywhere, much to the pleasure of history and architecture lovers, and those nostalgic for the Roaring Twenties.
The past reveals itself in the medieval village and castle,St. Marguerite's church, the ancient olive tree, the cave of Vallonet and Le Corbusier's cabin.
The luxury of the villas, some of which resemblepalaces remind us that here, in Roquebrune, statesmen, royalty, writers, and artists all came looking for inspiration and rest: Winston Churchill, Coco Chanel, Sacha Guitry, Jacques Brel, Silvana Mangano...
