A villa with the potential to become one of the Cote d’Azur’s most opulent homes has gone on sale for £6.8m (7.9 million euros).
Villa Beau Site, which was built in 1870, is so unique that it is regarded as an official French historic monument.
The Cure recorded their iconic video for the song Catch there in 1987 and its nearest neighbour is the former home of actor Sean Connery.
The property comes with ten bedrooms, ten bathrooms and more than 20 other rooms, many with views over the Mediterranean towards the city of Nice.
