Decorated in regal designs and looking out over beautiful scenery, it's no surprise this grand palace was a beloved holiday destination of Queen Victoria. Now, you get to follow in her royal footsteps. The lavish interior showcases material and craftsmanship from across the world – find Brazilian marble next to Polish wall panels. However, the effortlessly cool style remains authentically French. Extravagant and luxurious, the palatial home is perfect for indulging in a week of wellness. Unwind in the deluxe sauna, cleanse the mind and body in the hot tub or swim a few lengths in the indoor heated pool. If you prefer to relax in the great outdoors, the stretching green gardens are a peaceful haven. Stroll amongst the exotic flowers and verdant plant life, taking in the fresh scents and captivating colours of the natural scenery. The home exudes a sense of seclusion at all times, yet it's still well-connected. The cultural hubs of Nice and Cannes are just a short drive away, whilst the cosy town of Grasse can be reached in a couple of minutes. Here, you'll find notes to its historical past as the home of perfumery, alongside sleepy cafes and quaint boulangeries.

About Cannes

Think of Cannes on the Côte d’Azur and images of super-yachts, sun-kissed beaches and starlets strutting the red carpet for its iconic film festival will surely spring to mind. But Cannes' dazzle reaches far beyond the flash of the paparazzi's cameras. Yes, Porsche-admiring and celeb-spotting are some of this city’s perennial pastimes, but scratch beneath the surface and you’ll see a city rich in culture and natural beauty. Stroll along...
