My Villa

Coming to Cannes for business or pleasure? Rent now Le Grand Jardin on the Saint-Marguerite island facing Cannes, one of the most exclusive properties on the French Riviera with Casol Villas France!

Looking for the ultimate experience on the French Riviera? Arrive by boat or helicopter to a 13th century, private walled estate on l'Ile de Sainte Marguerite, the only villa on the island, and celebrate Le Joie de Vivre with your family and friends on your 14,000 m2 (150,000 sq.ft) botanical gardens calling you for slow strolls in this Mediterranean secret sanctuary.

Love to go jogging in the morning? Be free and discover the Sainte-Marguerite island, a 2 km2 (500 acres) land part of the Lérin Islands, offering you nature with beautiful parasol pines, clear water beaches, the Fort Royal, and that also include the smaller Ile Saint-Honorat to the South.

Recently given a new life in 2022 by an important real estate company and a rare triumph in every sense : Le Grand Jardin invites you to this eco-friendly, era-defining and region’s colourful history. Picture sweet-smelling citrus trees, tranquil and trickling natural pools and legendary sea views only the city of the cinema could produce.

With no neighbors around, gaze at the stars at night, in all the peace of the world, or enjoy magical moments with your loved ones around the pool with your favourite drink in your hands!

A destination for kings and emperors for the last 800 years, Sainte Marguerite has long allured the world’s elite, with previous owners including Louis XIV and the 15th century Dukes of Guise. Do you know the story of the Man in the Iron Mask? He was once held captive in the island’s fortress in the 1600s. Legend also has it that Napoleon once grazed his horses in the garden, while cannonballs were prepared elsewhere on the island before being fired at passing ships.

The Concept

Enjoy privacy and time for yourself, with the 12 bedrooms across 7 separate buildings, in the 3.5 acres property : the Governor’s House, 3 cottages, 3 Pool Suites, 1 Guest House, and the Old Fortress Tower.

Time to explore your property? Savour a moment in the sun-beaten days while exploring the garden and wine cellar.

Culinary moments? Life is sweet at Le Grand Jardin! Wake up and smell the roses, strolling through an abundant garden to handpick ingredients for harvesting before each meal. Its sprawling fruit and vegetable beds are hemmed in with olive and lemon trees — and that’s just for starters. Everything you need is on your doorstep.

And, it could all be prepared at a moment’s notice. Dine al-fresco on long tables adorned with roses and irises plucked from the gardens or tuck into citrusy cocktails at the sun-drenched outdoor bar!

Real estate connaisseur? Experience the latest improvements, thoughtfully created with sustainable materials including rock flooring, white and grey marble, with neutral beige and teak wood floors. Inspired by the beauty of the South of France, live fairytale moments in this clean-lined architecture of Le Grand Jardin, surrounded by water, still not far from the mainland in Cannes.

Need to host a VIP wedding, produce a film or organise a special event during the Cannes Film Festival, Mipim, Cannes Lion Festival, Longines Global Champions Tour, Cannes Yachting Festival, ILTM or F1 Monaco Grand Prix? Simply contact us to discuss your special needs.
