The Villa Les Cèdres’s is located off the coast of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat with most breathtaking views of the popular bridge Villefranche-sur-Mer near the medieval town of Eze Village. Look to your east and you would stare at the beauty of the Alps separating France and Italy.
The historical connect
Live life the king size – an idiom we think fits the one who has lived here in times and will live in the future. This property was constructed for the King of Belgium back in 1830. Inspired by the Kingdom of Sardinia that ruled Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat in the 19th century, the property has some olive trees that are over 300 years old.
