A place of charm and history, the castle of Montlaur was owned  by EDOUARD NIERMANS, the famous architect of the "Café Society"  of the "Belle Epoque" to whom we owe many beautiful and mythical buildings  as the Hotel Negresco in Nice, the Hotel du Palais in Biarritz, the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo, as well as in Paris the Moulin Rouge, the Folies Bergères, the Casino de Paris, the Elysée Montmartre.

EDOUARD NIERMANS is considered one of the most important architects of the "Belle Epoque" in France.

 

 

Friend of Auguste Renoir, Théo Van Gogh, Jules Cheret, Felix Ziem,

and Charles Garnier, in 1895 EDOUARD NIERMANS  married

Louise Marie Héloïse Dewachter (1871 - 1963),

Isidore Louis Dewachter's sister, the  Flemish post impressionist painter,

well known as Louis Dewis (1872 - 1946).
