History: The first historical traces of Villa Edge Road date back to around the 1870s. At that time, the entire area belonged to the English who divided it into huge properties. Built on a plot of land that has never changed since the beginning, the Hollandia villa was then designed at the request of the Grand Duke François III of Melcklebourg-Schwerin of fragile health who at that time had to spend a long stay on what Stephen Liegeard called the Côte d'Azur. The latter would very soon leave the property in favor of another (Villa WENDEN in the district of California). Some time later, another equally famous family, the ROTSCHILDs, set their sights on the property, more particularly Bettina de Rothschild, then widow of James de Rotschild. This branch of the family certainly the most powerful since the Baron de Rotschild was successively the banker of Louis XVIII, Charles X and Louis-Philippe, who died in 1868. This property then became a high place of festivity, where all would meet those who have contributed to building the history of our old continent. In 1887, the property was to be twinned with another even more imposing villa (Villa Marie-Thérèse) where the Rothschilds then decided to settle. The Villa Hollandia at the beginning of the 20th century will be sold several times to industrialists who will modify it very little, thus leaving it its former glory. In 1920, this beautiful residence became the property of an American family from Baltimore, the D'ARCY HILLES, during the Second World War it was requisitioned and was used successively by the German and American armies. It was then, and this until the 1990s, the property of a Lyon family before being completely renovated by a famous Cannes resident, Mr. Claude MULLER
