They perpetuate the presence of Eugenie de Montijo, wife of Napoleon III, who on a summers day in 1855 chose a sandy hillside overlooking the sea not far from the Phare plateau as the site of the Imperial residence, the Villa Eugenie.

The style is synonymous with an era, the Second Empire, which was to establish the reputation of Biarritz as the Queen of Resorts and the Resort of Kings.
