Tour a $28M Oceanfront Mansion in the South of France

On the coast in the south of France, an impressive Belle-Époque mansion is on the market. Nestled in the seaside near beautiful French Rivieria beaches, the property could appear at first to be a small hotel with its unrivaled exterior beauty. But, luckily for the buyer, it’s a home—albeit an opulent one—with glimpses of the water at nearly every turn. Including the pool. A patio with the atmosphere of an expansive balcony also allows for uninhibited ocean views. Asking approximately $27.97 million (€23 million), the Cap D’Ail listing awaits.

Built in 1901 but renovated extensively in the years since, the home nevertheless feels like a monument of sorts to bygone style. A slender 0.3 acre lot houses the sumptuous spread, itself a 5,920 square foot palace with 7 bedrooms and 7 full bathrooms. The home unfurls across four levels, which climb efficiently upward to maximize a lavish floor plan on such slight acreage.

A smart layout allows not only for such spaciousness inside but also a sleek smattering of outdoor amenities. That pool that overlooks the ocean sits amidst a neat green lawn. Large terraces open out from various levels.

With a wine cellar, too, the mansion is like a fantasy of the South of France come to life. Côte d’Azur Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
