Quartier Godillot

Having made his fortune by equipping the armies of the Second Empire with godillots (shoes), Alexis Godillot went on to remodel this district, designing a number of villas for the "rich winter visitors" (many of them British): St Hubert house, the Moorish villa, the Anglican St-Paul's Church and Tunisian Villa (Av. De Beauregard), along with a number of former mansions: Hôtel des Palmiers (1884, now the Jean-Aicard high-school on Rue Gallieni), and the Hôtel des Ambassadeurs (Av. des Îles-d'Or).
