JFK and the Kennedy Family’s Former Côte d’Azur Vacation Spot Wants €31.5M

Just as the Hamptons has long been a playground for the rich and famous, so has the Côte d’Azur. This South of France region is full of incredible villas, landscapes, culture and fashion hubs, and wineries. It’s no wonder the Kennedy’s, one of America’s most prominent families of the 20th-century, often retreated here.

While JFK came to the area to holiday as an adult when one of his brothers rented a villa in Roquebrune Cap Martin, the famous U.S. president’s time here stretches back much further. While his father was the 44th U.S. Ambassador to the U.K., the Kennedy clan would often come and stay at the Domaine de Beaumont. Now, the exquisite estate built in 1920 and designed by architect Jacques Couëlle is for sale asking €31.5 million.
