Villa Victoria, Grasse

Alice de Rothschild (1847-1922) began to spend winters on the Riviera in 1887.  Finding the coast vulgar, in 1888 she became the owner of 135 hectares of land among the perfume fields of Grasse near Cannes in the Alpes-Maritimes, and began to build a house and possibly one of the most ostentatious and extravagant gardens ever seen.
