Geocache Description:

Villa Beatrix Enea

Une maison cosmopolite

La villa Beatrix Enea a été conçue dans l'esprit d'éclectisme de son époque, début du 20ème siècle, par Raymond Larrebat-Tudor, fils d'un poète bayonnais. L'architecte a ici fait preuve de la touche d'originalité qui le caractérise : tourelle avec loggia, arc gothique surbaissé (appelé arc Tudor), façade en pierres de Bidache, portail de bois couvert d'un toit, ... Cette maison de maîtres de plus de 1 000 m² est entourée d'un grand parc ouvert au public.

Parmi ses propriétaires successifs, on trouve des personnes de France, d'Argentine, de Pologne, du Lichtenstein et d'Espagne. La villa est aujourd'hui la propriété de la ville d'Anglet qui en a fait un lieu d'exposition (à visiter, au rez de chaussée) et un pôle de la vie culturelle municipale.



Villa Beatrix Enea

Des noms composites

Le premier nom connu de la villa est Marnoger, formé à partir des trois prénoms des enfants du propriétaire, Paul Campagne : Marcel (1901-1918), Nora (1902-1956) et Roger (1905-1945). Le nom actuel, Beatrix Enea, est, lui aussi, composé de deux prénoms, a été donné par les derniers propriétaires de la villa et demeure mystérieux. Contrairement au premier nom, il ne s'agit pas des prénoms de leurs enfants.

A cosmopolitan house

Villa Beatrix Enea was designed in the spirit of eclecticism of its time, in the early 20th century, by Raymond Larrebat Tudor, son of a Bayonne poet. The architect showed here his touch of originality with some special features: a turret with a loggia, a low Gothic arch (a Tudor arch), a facade in Bidache stones, a wooden gate with its own roof. This master house of more than 10,000 sq. ft. is surrounded by a nice public park.

Among its owners, there are people from France, Argentina, Poland, Liechtenstein and Spain. The villa is now owned by the town of Anglet that has made an exhibition (to visit the ground floor) and a pole of municipal cultural life.


Composite names

The first known name of the villa was Marnoger, formed from the first names of the children of the owner, Paul Campagne: Marcel (1901-1918), Nora (1902-1956) and Roger (1905-1945). The current name, Beatrix Enea, too, consists of two first names. It was given by the last owners of the villa and remains mysterious. Unlike the first one, these were not the names of the owners' children.
