Located on a cliffside in one of the most exclusive areas of Cannes and offering sweeping panoramic French Riviera views, this nine-bedroom mansion is one of the most luxurious in the Cote d’Azur.
On the market for an undisclosed sum, the residence has an unparalleled reputation – fully booked during the Cannes Film Festival and all other conventions, and the striking venue for impromptu gigs by the likes of Sting. Come summertime, families vie to rent the space for vacations.
And now, the sprawling estate has hit the market with Knight Frank French Riviera.
It’s worth keeping in mind that Alang Alang is also available for rent, should prospective buyers wish to get a feel for the property before committing.
Alang Alang: High-end luxury in the hills of Cannes
The new owner will delight in 17,223 square feet of interior space and four acres of manicured multi-level gardens, complete with a 25-meter infinity pool.
Situated in the secure and private area of La Californie, Balinese-inspired Alang Alang boasts a sunny southwest exposure and glorious vistas out to the sea from your very own sandy beach terrace.
Wander through the large covered courtyard that houses a koi pond and waterfalls, enter the main entrance hall, and then take in the capacious living area with a fireplace and bar.
You’ll also discover a dining and TV room, a generously sized modern kitchen with a breakfast bar, plus a cinema, a fully-equipped gym, an office, and a cellar complete with a tasting room.
And let’s not forget the on-site spa with a heated plunge pool, steam and massage rooms, hair and nail stations, and heated relaxation beds. A treatment team is available on request.
Take the lift to the first floor and you’ll be wowed by the master suite with a sitting area, walk-in wardrobe, bathroom and several private balconies, plus a private deck with an American-style hot tub.
Alongside an additional eight en-suite bedrooms (most with terraces), there are also staff quarters spanning an impressive four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Back outside, the pool is surrounded by a bar, multiple terraces, and an alfresco kitchen and eating zone. There’s also a second swimming area at the end of the grounds.
La Californie: Exceptional location
Sitting in an elevated position a short distance northeast of the center of Cannes, Alang Alang overlooks the glamorous town and the glistening sea beyond. You’re just a 10-minute drive from the beach and top-end shopping along Boulevard de la Croisette, and a short ride from quality golf at Royal Mougins and Mandelieu. Furthermore, Vidauban and Terre Blanche – number one and two courses in Southeast France respectively – are just an hour away.
Out and about, Nice is half an hour by car, Monaco is less than a 60-minute journey, and you can reach Saint-Tropez in 1.25 hours. Come winter, if skiing is your sport, Isola 2000 is reachable in two hours, while Chamonix, Val-d’Isère, and Verbier are around six hours away.
Back in Cannes, you can enjoy all manner of watersports from diving to yachting, and you’ll find no less than four marinas in the area, should you need to dock your boat. There’s also a casino at either end of La Croisette, if that tickles your fancy. Food- and drink-wise, you’re surrounded by first-rate places, including La Table du Chef, Astoux et Brun, La Folie Douce, Cave Riviera, and Michelin-starred La Palme d’Or.
