Cannes, Cote d'Azur, France


5 Bedroom House For Sale in Cannes, Cote d'Azur, France

Ref 042013-005 - This exquisite luxury villa overlooks Cannes, in a very sought after area above the city. As soon as the big main double entrance doors to the villa are flung open, and one enters the hall, the real magnificence of the villa and its situation is revealed, including the inspirational view out and beyond to the sea, across a beautiful garden, which is entirely private and hidden from the rest of the world. The interior is where passion meets perfection; the renovation has been effected with such love and attention to detail over years, and at great cost, with infinite respect to the history of the building, and to the wants and needs of the wealthy connoisseur of finer living in the 21st century. The floors, ceilings, and stairways are original, and perfectly renovated by the very best artists and craftsman. The modern day Italian stone masons and Austrian carpenters brought in to do the work are as proud of their craft as their forbears were, and their work is there today to stand once more, the test of time. This magnificent home is delivered without a flaw. The villa has been reborn with the use of only the best materials (Miele and Rosieres, Old Oak and Calcatta Oro), and the pride and skills of the best craftsmen in Europe. The home that has been created is opulent in mood and utterly functional in design, with un-spoilt charm and beauty left intact. This villa is quite spectacular, a true masterpiece! AREA DESCRIPTION: Cannes is situated midway along the French Riviera (also known around the world as the Cote d'Azur) between Monaco and St Tropez, and only 30 minutes from the Nice International Airport. Since Victorian times, she has attracted the most discerning of international visitors who come here to enjoy the sandy beaches, world class shopping, 5 star restaurants and everything that goes under the banner of âquality of livingâ. With a population of just over 70 000 residents, this French Riviera hotspot has become a second home to many internationals who use it as an escape to enjoy the fine weather, convenient location and easy going lifestyle. From luxury villas in Super Cannes and La Californie, to beachfront apartments in Cannesâ aptly named Palm Beach or along the length of the famous La Croisette, as well as charming townhouses in the older quartiers of âLe Suquetâ and Marche Forville, there is a property in Cannes to suit all tastes and budgets. There is a huge variation in the price one might have to pay for a villa or an apartment in Cannes dependant on its size, state and position â however, being a small town most property locations are convenient, often being less than a 20 minutes walk from the centre, the beaches of La Croisette, the Rue d'Antibes for shopping, the Old Port and the Port Canto, and the charming restaurants on Rue St Antoine. This small-town feel and convenience adds to the âjoie de vivreâ enjoyed by all those who live in here, or have chosen it as a destination for their second home. For more than two centuries, Cannes has been attracting international buyers and homeowners, encouraged by the completion of the railway towards the end of the 19th century, as well as the arrival of streetcars. The British, Russian and American super-rich and aristocracy including the Rothschildâs and Queen Victoria herself flocked to the town. The luxury hotels such as the Miramar, the Cartlon and the Martinez lining the sunny Boulevard de La Croisette were constructed and in the early 20th century, initially for people who wanted to enjoy warmer winters, but slowly people began to use Cannes as a summer vacation destination, and very gradually summer became the most popular season for visitors. (Winter in Cannes is the best kept secret however â so please donât tell anyone!) During the 19th and early 20th century, most of the grand villas of Cannes were built, reflecting the wealth and luxury for which the Riviera has become so well known. The oldest residential area of Cannes, known as the Quartier des Anglais is home to many of these villas, many of them remaining as family homes still today. After World War II Cannes started to evolve rapidly from a French Riviera seaside town of many glorious second homes and holidays properties. With the first Cannes Film Festival in 1946 she began to attract the attention of serious business people from around the world from many different commercial sectors, and the international congress and business conference business began to blossom. With the building of the current Palais des Festivals in 1979, Cannes positioned itself as a top class destination for exhibitors worldwide. These congresses brought a huge increase in visitors (and many businessmen) to Cannes in the winter months as well as summer, creating property investment opportunities in the centre of Cannes for short term rental apartments as well as the traditional holiday homes for which she was best known. Real Estate investors began to purchase apartments in La Banane (Cannesâ centre) and the adjacent areas of Palm Beach, Petit Juas and La Californie, all in order to provide short term rental accommodation to the increasing numbers of visitors and to provide an overflow to limited hotel accommodation. Over the decades, rental and investment properties have become a strong market and very sought after for property investors from around the world. As a result of this rapid growth and development the property market for both luxury villas on the Cote dâAzur and apartments in Cannes has grown ever stronger, with demand often outstripping supply. It is without doubt the busiest, most vibrant and the most loved town on the French Riviera and as such maintains a reputation that is difficult to match anywhere on the Cote d'Azur.
