Homepage Villa Théoule-sur-Mer


Ref. 1781485 - In 1925, the young architect Barry Dierks, 26, discovered in Théoule-sur-Mer a 6,000 m2 plot of land on a small peninsula on the Pointe de l'Esquillon, with a creek and a private beach inaccessible to all. This promontory on the sea enjoys a view from the bay of Cannes to Cape Roux and south to Corsica1.
Barry Dierks, who has a solid architectural background and belongs to a generation of young creators who are sensitive to the modern movement, 3 builds the villa in this setting that Noël Coward will later call "impossibly beautiful." The place becomes both his place of residence, his workshop and his showcase.
Well introduced in the French and American high society, Barry Dierks and his associate companion, they garner the contracts after this realization. Today there are one hundred and two projects run by Dierks for clients ranging from Paul-Louis Weiller to the Marquis de Cholmondeley, and the Prince of Monaco to Maxine
Elliott or General Catroux3. The villa's guest book features guest speakers including Picasso, Somerset Maugham, Noel Coward, and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Most of these guests become friends and frequent Le Trident.
Barry Dierks, following the "illness3", was amputated with one leg in 1956 and died in 1960. His companion Eric Sawyer survived until 1985 and bequeathed the villa to his nephew. The children of the latter put the property on sale in 2008 at the announced price of 22 million euros.
The house is built below. It is reached by going down about thirty steps. The entrance is at the level of the floor of the rooms, living rooms and terraces on the lower floor. According to François Fray, heritage curator, most houses designed by Barry Dierks follow this distribution scheme.
