The French Riviera - What else?

Wouldn't you be just a little bit surprised to come across, for example, Brad Pitt at your local bakery in the morning when you went to buy a baguette and some croissants? On the French Riviera, this is not an impossibility, even during other periods than the film festival, as many world celebrities have chosen to invest in a holiday home right here. And who can blame them for that - after all, we live in one of Europe's most sought-after regions! "Celebrities" have been drawn to the French Riviera for centuries - English Queen Victoria settled in her Hôtel Regina on the Cimiez Hill in Nice already in the 19th century and the list is infinite…

Did you know, for example, that John Lennon's son Julian lives in Eze and that Angelina and Brad Pitt chose a French obstetrician to assist the birth of their twins in 2008, at the Santa Maria clinic in Nice? Brad and Angelina later bought the Château Miraval in 2011, a well known wine castle in the Var. More or less all Swedes may know that the royal family has a summer house in Sainte Maxime, but perhaps not that Elton John actually owns a villa in the Mont Boron area above the port of Nice or that Mel Gibson has chosen ... Valbonne as his second home. George Clooney and his wife Amal just became owners of a magnificent Provencal mansion in Brignoles in the Var, something that will probably boost the village’s popularity enormously!
