Villa Arnaga, Cambo les Bains

Built by playwright Edmond Rostand in the early 1900s, Villa Arnaga served as his family's home until his death in 1918. A museum since 1960, it showcases relics relating to Rostand's life and storied career, including the 1992 Caesar (the French equivalent of the Academy Award) that Gerard Depardieu won for his role in "Cyrano de Bergerac," based on the play of the same name by Rostand.

  • Very nice and interesting place to visit for fans of the legend. I went there on a rainy day and I still had enough to see to spend a few hours there. Also the price was very honest. I didn't take the guided tour and didn't feel like I was missing anything. Of course, the guided tour surely will provide more information.
  • Stunning gardens. Excellent chateaux. Staff very helpful and pleased to assist. A pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
  • Beautiful house with original paintings and costumes. Stunning garden
  • Absolutely gorgeous place. While visiting family in Cambo-les-Bains,I visited this well preserved and organized Villa. English ,Spanish ,French self guide are available in each visiting point which is very helpful. Allow yourself to have at least more than 2 hours to complete the visiting the villa and take a stroll in the garden.
  • Very beautiful musuem with a splendid garden. A must visit, even if you did not read anything from Edmond Rostand.
