Extending the town of Cannes along the coast, Mandelieu has a private airport and six different ports. It is also near to Nice airport as it is not necessary to cross the town and takes but 15 minutes via the motorway. This property is slightly set back from the town centre, in the pleasant Capitou district which stretches along the bottom of the neighbouring hills; a location that provides an unobstructed view not only of Cannes Bay but also of the Grasse hinterland and the Estérel mountain range.
Built in the 1920s for an opera singer, very famous at the time, this villa includes some twelve rooms spread over three floors.
Art Deco style constructions all have one thing in common, which is that they always appear to be in their place whatever the latitude and the surroundings that have seen them prosper. This villa is a prime example and proves the rule courtesy of its way of emerging from the hillside, protruding from the terraced garden like a liner cutting through the waves. Leaving aside the facades which have been somewhat neglected but which could easily be given back their splendour of yesteryear by a few light restoration works, its unspoilt refinement and soberness still have a powerful effect. Ideally located, away from the hustle and bustle despite being but a stone’s throw from the town centre, this property is one of those that bring all kinds of projects to mind, especially as it would give its new owners free rein as regards conversion possibilities.
