In Grimaud, in the 1925’s, Emile and Edmond Bernheim designed the estate of Beauvallon to develop a golf course, near which the villas of the estate were gradually established. From then on, this residential complex overlooking the Gulf of Saint-Tropez brings together in an exemplary way the constructions of renowned regional architects and works of major representatives of the Modern Movement.
After having built the golf club-house, in 1928 Pierre Chareau receives from Edmond Bernheim the commission of the villa Vent d'Aval, designed to house the three generations of his family (including his daughter, Annie Dalsace, for whom Chareau built the Glass House in Paris at the same time). The work begun in 1928 seems to have been abandoned shortly after, and completed after the war by André Barbier-Bouvet, a local architect open to modernist tendencies (1950).
