Château de la Croix des Gardes

The Story

Let's start from the beginning

A Legend is Born

The Château de la Croix Des Gardes was built in 1919 by Swiss industrialist, Paul Girod. A Florentine-style mansion sitting on the peak of the hill, surrounded by woodland and gardens, the ‘jewel’ of the elegant ‘Quartier des Anglais’.


Alfred Hitchcock, Cary Grant & Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot as well as well as Leslie Caron, all fell for the majestic charms of Château de la Croix des Gardes. The houses’ history is intimately intertwined with the rise of Riviera.

Festival de Cannes

Legend says that Hitchcock initially discovered the Château as a guest at one of the first parties held to mark the Cannes Film Festival, which led him to use it as a backdrop to frame Grace Kelly and Cary Grant’s on-screen romance.

Guests & Partners

Brigitte Bardot and Leslie Caron were amongst the frequent event guests held at the Château, and brands such as Chopard used the stunning scenery to welcome guests to private parties.
