David Niven's Window


We've popped along to Cap Ferrat today to David Niven's villa, originally called Lo Scoglietto (Little Rock). He bought it from Charlie Chaplin but its history goes back far beyond that.

Today: a bougainvillea-clad window to whet your appetite. Tomorrow: we'll see this beautiful house from the sea and learn more of its history.

The photos were taken in September but you'll find bougainvillea in flower in January too. My neighbour has a wall covered in it.

Jameson, one of the reasons I've not shown this villa before is that, as you'd know, it's nearly always in shade - from the sea side - so I'm not crazy about the photos. Anyway you'll see.

Beautiful. I love the color of the building & your composition!

It is fun to discover celebrity homes. I would guess that David Niven's house has class. I will look forward to seeing more.

Cap Ferrat is so beautiful. I marvel me again and again, on the beautiful bougainvillea, which is so exuberant flowers in your area. Beautiful pictures!

Happy 2012!

Warm wishes, Helena

Beautiful window!
Who owns this villa now?
Looking forward to hear its (hi-)story! Will look at my pics later to see if I photographed it, too, a couple of years ago..
