A Slice of Paradise
Knight Frank brings us the heavenly Eden development, an embodiment of new-build luxury, with a view over the stunning Côte d’Azur.
Nothing compares to the French Riviera. A legendary seaside resort, ever since the late 18thcentury, this part of France has long been a playground for international aristocracy, with the likes of Queen Victoria and King Edward VII sunning themselves on its shores. Cannes is a jewel in the crown. The establishment of the world-renowned film festival in 1949 brought the big screen to its streets, attracting film stars and fashionistas ever since, drawn to the luxury yachts and five-star hotels lining the Cannes Croisette. Lured by the mild climate, beautiful scenery and easy access to Nice International Airport, many see Cannes as a perfect retreat. It’s also the place to party, with glossy private events hosted all summer long, and plenty of action in the town itself. Home to high-end restaurants and bars, boutiques and cafés, there’s plenty here to keep visitors entertained until the early hours. A night at the tables more your thing? Casinos stretch the length of the Cote d’Azur, ready to play the high stakes, and Cannes’ proximity to Monaco means a last minute jaunt out of town can forever be on the cards.
With much of the coastline already developed, many are now turning to the mountains for building opportunities. It is here that locals look to withdraw from the bustling boardwalk in search of peace, and in this very same place, residents of Eden will make their home. This exclusive development is all about privacy. With 15 apartments spread over three low-rise buildings, Eden is generously proportioned and airy, maximising outdoor entertaining space for each apartment by offering extensive timber-clad private terraces. This design affords a similar style to that of the luxury villas in the surrounding hills, with each one seemingly separated from its neighbours. Interiors throughout are neutral, open-plan havens of natural light with luxurious finishes of wood and stone, echoing the beauty of the Mediterranean landscape. The slopes surrounding the development are thick with lush, sub-tropical greenery and immaculate landscaped gardens. Terraced in order to align with the natural topography of the mountain, the graduated height of the slopes ensure unobstructed vistas of the Mediterranean from every room. Residents have use of a large shared infinity pool located at the highest point of the development, complete with breathtaking views over the bay, perfect for an early evening tipple while watching the sun set over the horizon.
