The Villa Rothschild is now home to the Médiathèque Noailles. The building and its garden, both classified as historical monuments, have a rich history and bear witness to the splendour of Cannes‘ holiday resort at the beginning of the last century.
The villa was built in a neo-classical style on a rectangular plan, with a central body with two and three levels and two side wings. It had 40 rooms including 28 bedrooms. The park, planted with large trees, is rich in exotic species, blue cedar, ginkgo biloba, magnolia and palm trees. Four gardeners were responsible for its maintenance. In 1884, Baroness de Rothschild ordered a 12-metre high araucaria tree, which required a special carriage drawn by 32 horses to transport it from Golfe-Juan.
