Mandarin Oriental Exclusive Homes has welcomed the breathtaking Château de la Croix des Gardes into the growing portfolio for 2024. The extraordinary 16-bedroom estate is the latest property to join the collection, bringing the number of homes in the Côte d’Azur to a total of six, solidifying the region’s reputation as a renowned destination for luxury homes.

Mandarin Oriental Exclusive Homes is a branded collection of the world’s finest private vacation homes, chalets and mansions. Operated in collaboration with luxury home rental platform StayOne, each home is hand-picked for its outstanding quality and sought-after location, while also providing personalised service and experiences in keeping with the legendary hospitality of the award-winning brand.

With a rich history dating back centuries, Château de la Croix des Gardes stands as a testament to French Riviera glamour. Set amidst 25 acres of manicured Italian-style gardens, the estate offers unrivalled seclusion and panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea, situated just minutes away from the famous Croisette in Cannes. While the exterior of the estate invites leisurely exploration with its exquisite infinity pool, various terraces and beautiful gardens, the interiors are equally as meticulously curated.

Stepping into the Château guests are welcomed by a harmonious blend of classic sophistication and modern comforts. Each room is tastefully designed, featuring 16 impressionist-inspired en-suite bedrooms spread across the main house, cottages and pool penthouse. Guests can indulge in a plethora of entertainment options, ranging from the cosy cinema room to the exclusive private bowling alley. For those seeking outdoor recreation, the newly constructed tennis court offers the perfect setting for a friendly match.

Additionally, the magnificent grand ballroom, accommodating up to 100 guests, sets the stage for celebrating milestone events in style. The Château Manager and Head Butler will be available throughout guests’ stay to deliver the impeccable services renowned of Mandarin Oriental.


Since its cinematic debut in 1955 as the backdrop for Alfred Hitchcock’s “To Catch a Thief,” featuring the iconic duo Cary Grant and Grace Kelly, Château de la Croix des Gardes has been intricately woven into the fabric of cinematic history. As the Cannes Film Festival flourished, the Château became a favoured destination for Hollywood icons such as Brigitte Bardot.

Today, this captivating estate continues to charm celebrities and international brands. Notably, last year it hosted Donatella Versace’s La Vacanza fashion show, further cementing its legacy as a timeless emblem of Riviera elegance.
