Discover Pau Pau owes

Discover Pau Pau owes much of its success to the British. First came Wellington’s soldiers who passed through in 1856 after the Napoleonic wars and liked what they saw. Many of them never left, settling down and establishing France’s very first golf course. Scottish doctor Alexander Taylor extolled the virtues of the town’s clean air, and soon Europe’s well-todo were arriving to enjoy the dance evenings, hunting parties, and buzzing social scene. Their Belle Epoque villas still dot the town and fringe the Boulevard des Pyrénées, brainchild of engineer Jean Charles Alphand. In 1891, Alphand declared that ‘Pau should have its Promenade des Anglais of Nice’ and so he set about creating one.
