The history of La Clé de la Porte

La Clé de la Porte has got a meaning ”the key to the portal” as there is a story telling that a very long time ago when Antibes was besieged and there was only one entrance to Antibes and that portal was kept closed. The person who had the key to the portal lived in this house.

When we bought the house we also got the hotel register or ”Registre pour l’inscription des voyageurs” belonging to the house for the period of time when the business was run, that is during the years 1935 to 1968.

So we actually continue where it once started……with the key to the portal!
