Château de Garibondy
A hidden gem on the Côte d'Azur
With views of the Mediterranean sea and Estérel mountains from its terraces, gardens and rooms, Château de Garibondy is one of the most spectacular properties on the French Riviera. Steeped in history, the chateau was originally a hunting lodge for the Bishops of Brignoles and later became a holiday home to the Paget, Douglas and de Chambrun families. Sir Alfred Paget (Lord Uxbridge, Marquis of Anglesea), second in command under Wellington of the Allied forces at the Battle of Waterloo, was married to Cecilia Paget, lady-in-waiting to Queen Victoria who visited and planted the magnificent 132 year old pine tree in the garden which provides much needed shade in the summer months. More recently the Compte de Chambrun owned the property who had married Raine Spencer, stepmother to Princess Diana who visited with her sons during holidays to the south of France.
25 minutes from Nice Airport, 10 minutes from the private aerodrome of Cannes and the Croisette, the secluded chateau, nestled amongst its hilltop gardens, is an ideal luxury holiday destination with 12 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, living areas and terraces, a large oval swimming pool, tennis court and separate 3-bedroom villa available for additional accommodation as needed.
