Create your own masterpiece!
This exquisite Villa of the early 20th century has earned its place on the Côte d’Azur. Enjoying a panoramic view of the Mediterranean, it lies on the south end of Cap Martin, between Monaco and Menton, in the Roquebrune-Cap-Martin commune. The medieval village of Roquebrune sits in the hills further north.
During the first decades of the previous century Cap Martin was the place to be for the rich and famous. People like the English Queen Victoria, French Empress Eugenia, Coco Chanel, Greta Garbo, Winston Churchill, to name a few, passed their time here. The famous French architect Le Corbusier would go on walks on the little path above the sea, between the Cap and Monaco. In the local graveyard, lies the sister of the last Russian Tsar Ksenia Aleksandrovna and her husband.
Cap Martin, similarly to Cap Ferra and Cap d’Antibes, boasts some of the most picturesque villas and gardens built at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. Cyrnos, the villa of the Empress Eugenia, Cypris, Zoraïdes, Villa Del Mare, which belonged to the President of Zaire Mobutu, are, alongside this property, one of their kind. A remarkable quality of the villa is its large 2,6 h terrain, now a rarity on the Côte d’Azur.
