This historic waterfront estate is located in the seaside town of Cap d’Ail, just beside Monaco. The villa offers new, modern appliances while still retaining its Belle Epoque charm. The home is set on 3 floors and has 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, numerous terraces, and an infinity pool.
This eclectic, gracious abode offers a relaxing and luxurious setting with incredible sea views and private access to the sea. Built around 1900, this was one of the very first palaces in Cap d’Ail. The villa – in which Queen Beatrix spent some time during her childhood – has remained in the very same family for generations.
This majestic property enjoys idyllic gardens, panoramic views and a supreme location. The home offers a traditional living plan that is set over three floors. As you enter the villa, you arrive in the entryway on the top floor where there is a large living room area, with access to a terrace overlooking the sea, as well as three en suite bedrooms.
On the floor below there is a fully fitted kitchen, the laundry area, a living and dining room, and three additional bedrooms. On the lower floor there is a fantastic room with beautiful patterned cement tile, a large dining table, and a second kitchen. This lower floor opens onto the main terrace that overlooks the infinity pool and sea. The terrace offers a lovely dining table and lounge area as well as access to the pool and gardens below.
The interior spaces are bright with natural light, spacious and decorated with carefully selected antiques and quality furniture pieces. This luxury holiday villa was designed in an eclectic yet relaxed style that lends to a grand aristocratic flair. The numerous balconies and terraces as well as the large windows throughout really allows guests to live both indoors and outdoors.
The infinity pool is below the home and can be accessed by stairs. From the pool area, there is a private gate that leads to the sea. Whether you would like to curl up and read a book in the gardens overlooking the sea, go for a morning swim in the sea, or dine al fresco on the terrace, this villa is the ultimate Riviera getaway.
