Francine Weisweiller, the owner of the place, made the acquaintance of Jean Cocteau during the shooting of the film inspired by the novel "Les enfants terribles". Jean Cocteau was a painter who, after staying in the villa, asked permission to draw on the walls of the house. He said: "We should not dress the walls, we had to draw on their skins, which is why I treated the frescoes linearly with the few colors that enhance the tattoos. Santa Sospi is a tattooed villa ". His inspiration came to him from the Greek Mythology and the French Riviera. After attacking the different walls of the house, he attacked the ceilings and then at the entrance, making two magnificent mosaics. From 1948 to today, the villa remained the same. The decoration and furnitures did not move, and the villa was listed in the supplementary inventory of historic monuments on May 5, 1995. It was also labeled "heritage of the twentieth century".
