In front of the little port of Arziglia, the elegant white silhouette of Villa Garnier stands out. It was the residence of the well-known Parisian architect Charles Garnier (1825-1898), the creator, among many works, of the Paris Opera and the Casino of Montecarlo. Inside the building, now owned by the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Aosta, paintings by the French painter Paul Baudry and frescoes by Ernest Meissonier and Goustave Boulanger can be seen. The villa is surrounded by a magnificent palm grove and sun-drenched terraces where exotic plants grow. In the garden you can still admire the bust of Charles Garnier by the French sculptor J.B. Carpeaux and a column from the Tuileries palace in Paris (which Garnier loved very much, but which he was commissioned unfortunately to demolish).
