Villa Carmen was named after Carmen Sylva,
Queen Elisabeth of Romania, who used to visit the town.
The legend says that her husband got lost while riding
through the nearby woods one day and that he consequently
donated a sufficient amount of money to the town mayor
to ensure that all woodland paths and trails are marked
and signs placed. That is how the famous Carmen Sylva
Promenade came into being. Villa Carmen is beautifully
positioned along the promenade.
