American Couple Bought French Rivera Castle

Back in 1918, an American couple who were living in Paris decided to follow their dream and head to the French Riviera.

Henry Clews Jr and Marie Clews purchased a castle in La Napoule on the French Riviera. Click here for location.

The castle was originally constructed in the 14th Century by the countess of Villeneuve.

After their purchase, Henry who was a sculpture and Marie who was passionate about music devoted their time to renovating and restoring the castle.

Today the castle is owned by the La Napooule Art Foundation which was founded by Marie Clews in 1951.
