A modernist villa with panoramic views of the French Riviera

Ever thought about owning your own villa in the sunny south of France? Investing in property always is a smart move but when this property also gives you a chance to escape from the daily grind while providing all modern comforts, it is easy to see why many so people are considering a new villas. They provide the perfect getaway and life long memories…

Like this contemporary five-bedroom modernist villa that is up for sale in Super Cannes, France, offering a spectacular panoramic view of the French Riviera. The private home has been recently renovated which gives it a modern appearance. Not designed by Eileen Gray or Le Corbusier, but certainly no less special. Not classified as a historical monument, it makes the house very comfortable to live in after the renovation.

This modernist white villa screams luxury, with five large suites, a swimming pool, a double garage, a jacuzzi and a separate apartment for a caretaker. The large windows provide a constant outdoor feeling with lots of light. There are several entertainment areas both in the outdoor and the indoor areas. Also, the stunning gardens overlook the Cap d’Antibes and the sea.

I know exactly where I want to put my Giorgetti Gallery dining room table with 8 Josef Hoffmann chairs. And my Le Corbusier LC2 armchairs, Eileen Gray Transat lounge chair, my Lalique lamp, Giorgetti desk set and side tables will certainly will also fit. Just like my Chanel Antaeus, Dior Jules and L’Eau de Hermès collection.

The hills dominating Cannes are generically called the ‘Super Cannes’. The region rises about La Californie, and lies above and to the east of Le Cannet. The homes over here are built on large plots, with this villa occupying 2300 m.sq. of land. They are known for their stunning views and exemplary environment. Furthermore, Super Cannes is in close proximity to the beaches and the Nice International Airport- which is just a 30-minute drive on a usually empty route.

That said, Super Cannes is a prominent European area to buy a property and this one will cost you an astronomical €8.5 million ($9.7 million). However, considering the high interest in the private homes in Super Cannes, we won’t be surprised to see if this one finds a buyer soon enough.

I wish I was rich and not so pretty…
