Press Architectural Digest: the most beautiful villas and châteaux in France

In the dynamic world of luxury real estate, recognition is the ultimate seal of prestige. Recently, the renowned media outlet Architectural Digest highlighted an exclusive selection of properties of rare beauty, including several presented by the Sotheby's International Realty network.

Among these real estate treasures, three residences from the Côte d'Azur Sotheby's International Realty portfolio, have captured the attention of connoisseurs and architecture enthusiasts alike.

La Muse d'Orphée: a luxury property in the Cannes hinterland

La Muse d'Orphée, located in the Cannes hinterland, embodies the very essence of Provençal elegance. This 15,000 m² Provençal bastide unveils an enchanting garden where cypress and olive trees mingle, offering an oasis of serenity.

Acquired in January 2001 after the death of Jean Marais in 1998, this property steeped in history represents the perfect blend of Mediterranean lifestyle and understated luxury. Its magnificent saltwater swimming pool blends harmoniously into this natural setting, offering an idyllic and peaceful living experience.

Every detail of this 500 m² residence bears witness to the artistry of Jean Marais himself, accompanied by his architect. The meticulously designed space offers total immersion in the Provençal ambience, combining light-coloured stone with a Mediterranean garden.

 

La Muse d'Orphée, a real treasure in the heart of Provence, is an invitation to live in a place where history, refinement and tranquillity blend harmoniously to offer an authentic Mediterranean living experience.

Architectural Digest includes it in its two lists of the most beautiful châteaux for sale in France, as well as the most beautiful villas.

Villa Grand Cap: a contemporary villa by Jean Nouvel

Designed by the illustrious architect Jean Nouvel, Villa Grand Cap is a contemporary marvel. This 545 m² all-glass residence, set on a steep 4,000 m² seafront plot, marvels at its fusion with the environment.

Spread over five levels, it is bathed in natural light thanks to its glass roofs and west-facing aspect, creating a sensational atmosphere. Each space feels like a greenhouse facing the Mediterranean, inviting nature inside and offering spectacular views over the harbour of Villefranche-sur-Mer.

Its contemporary design blends seamlessly into the contours of the land, blending in perfectly with the surrounding topography. A secret room carved into the rock and a private swimming pool add a touch of exclusivity to this unusual villa.

 

Just a few kilometres from the Principality of Monaco and Nice, Villa Grand Cap is a haven of peace in the heart of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. This property is the epitome of elegance on the Côte d'Azur, offering an incomparable lifestyle in one of the most sought-after regions of the Mediterranean.

Architectural Digest honours this exceptional villa in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat in its article on the 7 most beautiful villas for sale in France.

Domaine de Laroche-Ploquin: a historic Loire château

This majestic Loire château, nestled in 72,240 m² of wooded parkland, has been transformed into a sumptuous 4-star hotel with a semi-gastronomic restaurant, inaugurated in 2017.

 

The rooms are a tribute to classic French interiors, combining refined period furniture with modern comforts. The spacious bathrooms are adorned with luxurious fittings from the Villeroy & Boch collection, featuring noble materials such as Carrara marble and solid wood.

In addition to its historic cachet and vast open spaces, the château boasts 7 hectares of parkland ideal for extension, with the possibility of creating a spa and tennis court. Regional activities take pride of place, with a lake for fishing, a neighbouring hunting estate, stables and paths to explore on horseback.

Located in the heart of the Loire Valley, just 20 minutes from Tours and 2 hours 45 minutes from the centre of Paris, this property represents a unique immersion in history, offering an exceptional experience at your fingertips.

Architectural Digest presents this estate as one of the 6 most beautiful châteaux currently for sale in France.
