Domaine de Chantilly: A Jewel in the Crown of France

Domaine de Chantilly is a jewel in the crown of France with over 8 centuries of French history.

Located in one of the largest forests near Paris, the Domaine de Chantilly encompasses 7,800 hectares of land.

The stunning estate was owned by the same family, originally built in 1358 and was added on to over the years until the 19th century, after which the Duc uc d'Aumale, having no living heirs of his own, bequeathed the domaine to the Institut de France.

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'.
