The most expensive slice of luxury real estate on the Côte d’Azur is for sale for to the tune of US$69 Million. Villa Alang Alang situated on the French Riviera (or Côte d’Azur) is as famed as the Mediterranean coast is for its glamorous Saint-Tropez and Cannes beach resorts thanks to the recent impromptu, high profile performance by Sting at Live Nation’s annual Cannes Lions wrap party. How is it that during this period of economic uncertainty that a piece of French real estate can command US$69 Million? Well, imagine this – Cannes, a posh (understatement) town in the Alpes-Maritimes region, best known for its namesake, world-famous film festival and continuous stream of red-carpet celebrities, has an even more exclusive district – La Californie.
Sitting at the cliff of the La Californie hill, with panoramic views of the Bay of Cannes and the Esterel, is Villa Alang Alang. The sights from this 8 bedder 8 bath, palatial mansion are breathtaking to say the least. Add to this to the reputation of the area for aristocrats, artists and jet set for the last 50 years, Villa Alang Alang is simply the premier home to own for the truly global elite.
“The beach is incredibly popular with kids, and as far as we know Alang Alang is the only property on the Riviera with this kind of feature,” – Fredrik Lilloe, Knight Frank’s Riviera CEO
The extensive 1592m² Villa Alang Alang is set in 1.3 hectares of exquisite landscaped lawns, featuring a stone-walled private “beach” for keeping out prying eyes as well as a state-of-the-art gym (we mean it has EVERYTHING including a full-size boxing ring) and spa. Needless to say, the palace with 8 bedder, 8 bath, with 3 entertainment rooms and 2 swimming pools is impeccably designed and fully fitted. Offering every possible comfort and convenience, to up to 16 guests and living in fabulous style. Stylishly decorated in the style of a luxury Balinese retreat, the villa has a chic contemporary feel thanks to the thematically out of place but artistically impressive Tyrannosaurus Rex skull which greets guests as they enter the living area.
Luxuriate in the magnificent outdoor infinity pool and jacuzzi, enjoy an after-dinner aperitif on one of the villa’s multiple, scenic terraces with panoramic sea views, Villa Alang Alang is definitely well worth every single one of its 69 million dollars.
