Historic 'La Croix des Gardes', Jewel of the French Riviera

The largest remaining estate on the Cote D'Azur, this legendary property is an homage to the glory days of the French Riviera. In 1955, the property became famous as the set of Hitchcock's "To Catch a Thief". Megastar Grace Kelly fell under the spell of this unique Castle, positioned a few minutes from the port of Cannes and the 'Palais des Festivals'. 

Dating back to the early 19th century, this villa was built alongside a series of outstanding properties in the region, such as the 'Villa Rothschild', 'Castle Vallombrosa', and 'Villa Romée'.  The region became known as 'Quartier des Anglais'.
