Le Castellet is a private domain located in Villefranche sur Mer, located on the Moyenne Corniche, in between Nice and Monaco. It offers an easy access to the surrounding villages: Beaulieu, Eze, Saint Jean Cap Ferrat.
Many properties offer sublime views over the Saint Jean Cap Ferrat peninsula, and orientated South West, facing the Cap de Nice and the city, enjoying spectacular sunsets.
Tina Turner is rumoured to have owned a property in the domain, but announced that she sold in July 2013, in an interview with Oprah’s Next Chapter.
One of the most stunningly designed properties in the area, with an excellent position and views, is the Villa Bayview.
Part of an impressive portfolio of villas along the French Riviera and the Alpes, this is not the largest property in the collection, but can be considered one of the most popular! Offering five en-suite bathrooms and one of the most elegantly designed houses available on the luxury rental market.
This is also one of the few villas on the luxury rental market that has a car turning table! Photograph credit to the extremely talented Marc Berenguer.
LA Villa Cascade
Le Castellet offers several villas for rent, one the largest is found at the peak of the domain, offers vast living space and an ultra contemporary design. The Villa Cascade is so unique in its design and architecture, notably a long tunnel built in the rock to access the elevator – see photos below. “La Cascade” meaning “waterfall” in French, holds true to its name as the property has several of them running through the grounds.
The property has been built on five levels – including an extensive roof terrace which offers some of the best views on the Riviera.
Unfortunately the villa is no longer for rent.
