Address Villa Nellcote 10 Av. Louise Bordes, 06230 Villefranche-sur-Mer, France

During a forced exile, the Rolling Stones shook the villa Nellcote in the Alpes-Maritimes to its foundations.

It was in the late 1890s that the Villa Nellcote was built on a promontory overlooking the sea. The owner was then an important banker. A persistent legend states that the house was used as a Gestapo headquarters during the Second World War. Keith Richards himself reported seeing wrought iron air vents decorated with swastikas. Bought for 100 million euros in 2005, it has 16 rooms. Invisible from the street, hidden behind an imposing gate, it reveals itself more from the sea.
