Product description

Review

I loved every word (Sarra Manning Red)

Lovell dissects their lives and curates the interesting parts, bringing together the creme of high society. A sparkling group biography that brings to life a bygone era (The Lady)

Lovell wears her detailed research lightly and has produced a sprightly, well-paced account, rich in fascinating anecdote . . . an entertaining and zesty read (Sunday Express)

Lovell is superb on the great villas of the Riviera (The Times)

[A] blissful book - it's like basking in the warm Med (Rachel Johnson Mail on Sunday)

Mary S Lovell's social history is a meticulously researched and highly entertaining story about the characters who populated this decadent world . . . confiding and intimate, and it's an illuminating read (Hannah Beckerman Observer)

Book Description

A portrait of high society in the twentieth century, told through the stories of the guests of Maxine Elliott and Prince Aly Khan at the Château de l'Horizon in Cannes.
