    On 16th September we are planning in association with the Princess Grace Irish Library (PGIL) a visit to the famous villa E-1027 of Eileen Gray in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. After major renovations, E-1027 recently opened up to the public. The tour starts late afternoon (5pm) - followed by an aperitif on the villa's terrace.

    Tickets €25 per person, which all goes to the restoration fund. Price does not include transport to get there.
