François was born in Switzerland, but was brought to Menton 12 days after birth to be baptized at the Saint Michel basilica. Ever since he considers Menton and the Villa his second home. He now lives in Paris, but tries to escape two or three times a year to rewind at Paraisette, even for a few days.
FRrançois purchased this villa in 1922
Why FRrançois chose Old Town
This property has belonged to my family for many years, but it was just a place where people woulg go, perhaps on Sunday noon to have some pastis and a bite to eat. There was no road: in order to get there you had to walk straight up, avoiding slippery stones and thorny bushes. Once up there, you had better have your own food and drink. There was no water, no electricity and... no neighbors. But of course the view was there, together with the breeze and the silence (unless the cicadas were in full swing). Then in the late 60's a road was built which, by pure coincidence went exactly past the property. We therefore found an architect who, step by step built the property you can enjoy today.
What makes this villa unique
One of the features of Paraisette is that it is of course located on the Côte d'Azur with all the beautiful and glamorous amenities associated with the area. It is also very close to Liguria, an interesting region with worthwhile sights, cuisine and wines. We very much encourage our guests to explore that little known corner of Italy. But first and foremost, a stay at the Villa will allow you to savor the charm of Menton. Once one of the most glamorous spots of Europe, Menton was somewhat passed by the huge tourist developments of the Cote d'Azur in the 50's and 60's. Things are changing now, but, as you will look at the scenery of the old town from Paraisette or explore the fabulous gardens and Villas in and around Menton, you will still get a feeling of how it was many years ago.
