Ideally located on the prestigious Avenue du Roi Albert, east of ‘la Californie’ in Cannes, this unique castle of the nineteenth century, completely renovated and expanded, faces the Lérins Islands and offers a magnificent view of the sea.
Witness of a golden era, the house, plans by architect Rimbaud were carried out around 1868, became a real castle in 1872, when Aristide Boucicaut, founder of ‘Bon Marche’, built two additional wings, and various annexes such the chapel or the winter garden.
At the heart of a landscaped garden of over 8000 sqm, the property boast’s exclusive views of the Mediterranean, the Lerins Islands and the Massif Esterel. Its glass roof, its iconic stained glass windows overlooking the coastline, welcomed Aristide Boucicaut who played the organ. Later, balls were organized, and sometimes accomodated multiple guests in the house.
Upon entry by a high gate, we discover the park planted with rare trees, stone-paved roads, Japanese pathway, beautiful streams and waterfalls, an infinity pool with summer lounge and pool house.
With 5 levels and 900 m² of living space, the Château Soligny offers superb reception rooms, 8 majestic suites, quality installations such as a home cinema, a wine cellar and tasting room. Advanced home automation system, air conditioning, alarm, garage for 6 cars and lift.
Decorated with taste and elegance, the castle has been renovated with prestigious materials – ebony, marble, mother of pearl, leather flooring – a guarantee of quality and prestige.
Cannes Californie takes its name from the famous American exclusive Los Angeles residential area. Just like its US sibling, Cannes Californie is located on the hills of Cannes, overlooking the bay with grand panoramic sea views.
Whilst being close to downtown Cannes, the area is quiet, set among a mix a luxury villa, from period Belle Epoque, to Provencal Chic and lately contemporary. Cannes enjoys perfect position, halfway between the Italian border, St Tropez, Nice Aiport and Auron ski slops.
