Seeing the Château for the first time, you might quite justifiably think that it was the result of several centuries of changes and additions. In fact the Château was built in exactly one year.
Jacques Couëlle, the famous architect, was only 26 years old in 1927 when he designed this building. It was just one of a series for which he was responsible in the region between the two World Wars. In Castellaras, he conceived a Château that assembled architectural elements from the 12th, 15th and 16th centuries.
Founded on a historic site in the hills behind Cannes,
with a panoramic view of the sea and the Esterel
