The Villa L’Aiglon subsequently became indeed the exclusive residence of Princess Grace of Monaco, where she graciously welcomed numerous prominent figures. Among the notable guests, Joséphine Baker experienced an enchanting sojourn, captivated by the allure of the surroundings and Monaco itself. Following her passing in 1975, Joséphine Baker found her final resting place in the Principality, leaving behind a lasting connection to the distinguished estate.
