Yakimour is the name of a magnificent villa located near Cannes which belonged to the Sultan Aga Khan and his wife the Begum. From the 1940s, Yakimour was to become, like the most beautiful bourgeois houses on the Côte d’Azur, the meeting place of the international aristocracy and the many artists, painters and writers such as Picasso, de Stael or Scott Fitzgerald who had elected domicile in the South of France.
