La Colle-sur-Loup - 15th Century Chateau
Travel back in time in this unique castle, which has been renovated and expanded respecting the traditional materials and the unique history of the property.
François 1er was a guest at the chateau in 1538 during the Nice peace negotiations, and many centuries later, the castle became the property of the watchmaker Séverin Wunderman, owner of the Corum watch company and inventor of the Bubble watch. He had undertaken a massive renovation programme which totally transformed the castle. As an admirer of the works of Jean Cocteau, he exhibited his collection in the 12 rooms of the castle and had built a swimming pool designed by the artist.
With a total living area of approximately 1200m², the estate is like a small village with its paved courtyard, its castle of 750m², its 4 independent homes connected by telephone and internet as in a hotel, a workshop, a superb swimming pool, and a pond ... all overseen by a very sophisticated alarm system.
A real historical gem, this authentic and charming residence accommodates at least 24 people, as well as the organisation of private events, as it is located just fifteen minutes from Nice airport, and within easy reach of Saint Paul de Vence, Antibes and Cannes.
