Summary
"The Riviera Set is the story of the remarkable group of people who frequented the exquisite Chateau de l'Horizon in Cannes from 1930 to 1960. The Chateau was frequented by Winston Churchill, the Duke of Windsor, Wallis Simpson, Lady Thelma Furness, Anthony Eden, Lloyd George, Jenny Churchill, Gloria Vanderbilt, Lord Beaverbrook, J. P. Morgan, Prince Aly Khan, H. H. Aga Khan, Rita Hayworth, Gene Tierney, Anthony Eden, Noel Coward, Pamela Harriman, Greta Garbo, Yvonne de Carlo, Rhonda Fleming, Fred Astaire, Charlie Chaplin, Judy Garland, Douglas Fairbanks, Maurice Chevalier, Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly, Nancy Mitford, Debo Devonshire, Elsa Maxwell, Lady Diana Cooper, Princess Daisy Fellowes and many more British aristocrats and celebrities. It is a wonderful story of romance, laughter and scandal - which only ended when Prince Aly Khan died tragically in a car crash in 1960 (though as a footnote Princess Diana stayed there after the breakdown of her marriage)."--Publisher's website
