Property overview

An extraordinary and rare private estate for sale in the French Riviera; comprising three magnificent villas, a guesthouse and a residence for personnel, all within 30 hectares (74 acres) of park with spectacular views of the surrounding hills and sea.

The Domaine de Provence Estate is situated in a unique and peaceful area of Saint-Jean de Cannes and would make the perfect retreat, either for those seeking complete privacy or possibly as a company to entertain their clients. Despite its secluded location, this exceptional property is easily accessible and is just a 20 minutes’ drive from Cannes. Ideal for the film festival and ten minutes from the private-jet airport of Cannes Mandelieu.

The property offers a panorama of exceptional beauty with views over the Bay of Cannes, the setting for the world-famous film festival. Found up in the hills of Saint-Jean de Cannes, away from prying eyes this one-of-a-kind estate would certainly be a home worthy of a very discerning customer. Vistas also include Lerins islands and Esterel Mountains.

Surrounded by breathtaking nature, with some acres of landscaped grounds, olive groves, century-old trees, lavender fields and pretty meadows, the main residence comprises three state-of-the-art luxury villas. Providing the highest level of comfort and the latest technology, they would be ideal for entertaining the great and the good of the film world or could also be rented out individually if the owner preferred. In addition, there is a separate house for staff. 

Offering an unparalleled lifestyle, the owner here can awake to views of the sun rising over the bay before enjoying a work-out on the 4 km outdoor fitness trail, a game of tennis on the private court or a dip in one of the three heated swimming pools. They can then recharge in the spa and fitness area, complete with steam room, sauna and jacuzzi, before enjoying a light lunch on the terrace with olives from their own groves. This rare property also includes a private helipad with flight times to Cannes, La Croisette of just two minutes.

The total living area of all the residential buildings is approximately 2,080 sq m (22,389 sq ft), excluding the personnel residence). The properties include:

Regional info

The Côte d'Azur has been a playground for the rich and beautiful since the 1950s and remains so today - especially its most stylish resorts at Nice, Cannes, St-Tropez and Monte Carlo.

Although the warmest months fall between May and September, February is a particularly lovely time to visit - when Mimosa blossoms create a riot of colour against a backdrop of sparkling blue water.  It is easy to see why the clear light of the area attracted so many artists - from Matisse and Chagall, to Picasso and Cocteau.

In terms of activities, there is something for everyone.  The area's rich artistic heritage has given rise to a wide range of galleries (over 150 in fact), whilst a sandy beach shaded by umbrella pines - and home to every kind of water sport imaginable - is never far away. 

The Côte d'Azur is also a treat for food-lovers - the choice of cafes and restaurants, each serving its own take on the area's sun-drenched cuisine, is simply endless. For an intimate atmosphere, inventive menu and friendly service, try Le Peche Gourmand in Grasse. 

As one would expect, getting there is straightforward - the region is served by Nice Côte d'Azur airport and a second, smaller airport at Mandelieu. Once in situ, getting about by car or train is easy, whilst the towns are best explored on foot.
