The French Riviera
Welcome to the French Riviera
Paradise on Earth
A place so renowned that it needs no presentation. Known by everyone as the epitome of glamour with its unforgettable parties, sublime settings, extraordinary characters, and landscapes that seem straight out of a postcard. The French Riviera is truly paradise on earth.
During the 19th century, this location was put on the map with the arrival of wealthy British, Russian and French visitors who came to “winter” on the Riviera. These visits became a habit. Gradually the towns and fishing villages in the area adapted to the new inhabitants. Soon, towns such as Cannes, Nice, Menton, and Monaco were home to magnificent villas, flamboyant casinos, and splendid botanical gardens. All this, thus giving birth to the “lifestyle” that it is the French Riviera.
The rise of the Croix-des-Gardes Hill
Only 10 minutes’ drive from the Boulevard de la Croisette, where the early morning sounds of the Port gently fade into the click of cameras, and Spring’s soft light turns swiftly into the evening glitter of the silver screen.
The Château is located above the historic ‘Quartier Anglais’, to the east of the city, established in the early 19th century by the likes of Lord Henry Brougham, General John Taylor, and the Rothschilds.
On the peak of the Croix-des-Gardes Hill, where ancient look-outs once guarded the port below, is a private 25-acre estate. At its heart, an impressive neo-classical castle, built in a Florentine style in 1911, originally renovated in 1917, and most recently in 2020 to reclaim its former position and prestige as one of the most covetable addresses in the area.
