The Home

In summary

Le Grand Jardin is a hidden sanctuary on the Cote d’Azur that’s eco-friendly, era-defining and rooted in the region’s colourful history. It’s the sole private property on the island of Sainte Marguerite and has been designed to kick all senses into action. It’s all watched over by an old fortress and offers complete privacy from the outside world for a large group, despite being moments from the flashing lights of Cannes.
Arrive by boat to this 13th-century, private walled estate and enter a haven of your own. Sainte Marguerite has long allured the world’s elite, with previous owners including Louis XIV and the 15th-century Dukes of Guise. Without hesitation, this is the most exclusive property in the South of France. Couple the history of not only Sainte Marguerite Island but the French Riviera, with the signature design, and the estate has more than one story to tell, with amaring views.


This property has been designed to promote your wellbeing, from the elegant and airy rooms to the wellness area (with hammam, sauna and various treatment rooms for you to prioritise you).
There are 12 bedrooms across seven separate buildings in the one-and-a-half-acres property: the Governor’s House, three cottages, a guest house, and the old fortress tower.
It has all been thoughtfully created with sustainable materials including rock flooring, white and grey marble and neutral beige and teak wood floors. Its clean-lined architecture is synonymous with the South of France, but the property’s significance runs much deeper than that.
You can reveal its medieval history as you host dinner for extended family and friends, and launch momentous parties that overlook an idyllic pool dotted with water lilies.


You will sink into a relaxed state of mind as soon as you arrive to the gates of Le Grand Jardin.
You will appreciate the hot stone walkways that lead from the tranquil and trickling the natural pond with its water lilies to the 14,000m2 olfactive botanical garden that calls for slow strolls in the Mediterranean heat. 
You can also enjoy the beautiful heated swimming pool (7 x 7 metres - Depth 1.5 metre) at your leisure.
Life doesn’t get any sweeter than at Le Grand Jardin. You will wake up and smell the roses, strolling through an abundant garden to handpick ingredients for harvesting before each meal. Its sprawling fruit and vegetable beds are hemmed in with olive and lemon trees.
You will be able to dine al-fresco on long tables adorned with roses and irises plucked from the gardens or tuck into citrusy cocktails at the sun-drenched outdoor bar.
