Wish you could scoot around the French Riviera with Grace Kelly in your passenger seat, as Cary Grant does in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1955 film “To Catch a Thief”?
Well you can’t. But you can now own the home where the masked ball scene in the film was shot. Though the listing for this glorious French castle– the Chateau de la Croix des Gardes– does not have a price (and we were unable to contact the broker), Le Figaro (a French newspaper) estimates it costs upwards of €50 million.
The castle is so beautiful it was also featured in Alain Resnais’ “Last Year at Marienbad.” It has had many owners, including Louis-Eugène Perrier, the guy who made your favorite overpriced water.
Taking up almost 13,000 square feet, the castle sits on 24 acres and has thirteen bedrooms and nine bathrooms. It overlooks the Bay of Cannes and has a spectacular garden.
In our opinion, whoever buys it has a moral responsibility to throw the largest party at the Cannes Film Festival.
