A rectangular building already stood on this site at the beginning of the 19th century along the Genoa - Paris road.
Originally it was a rural house, but during this century it was transformed into a rental house for winter guests. To the north of the building, the orange tree plantations were replaced by a garden with regular flowerbeds. At the end of the 19th century, the building was raised and embellished with two hemicyclic forebodies. Its entrance was also made more monumental with the addition of a porch decorated with cast iron lantern statues.
