Luxury Villa by the sea, Cannes


Located on the hill of La Californie, this large, resolutely contemporary and luxurious villa enjoys a magnificent view over the entire bay of Cannes. The architects took up the topography of the site to place, as if suspended, this audacious architecture with lines highlighted by the large overflowing exterior terraces.

Integrated into an environment of Mediterranean architecture, the design breaks with this past style to stand out with a totally contemporary style, marked by two levels of entirely glazed and sliding facades, behind which all the reception and night spaces benefit from the exceptional panorama.

The base of the house is finished in dark grey-tinted concrete, to accentuate the lightness of the two entirely transparent upper levels. It houses the wellness and spa areas, a gym and a sports car garage.

The exterior is omnipresent from all the interior spaces, which open onto terraces on the periphery with direct access to the pool house area and the sea view of the lush vegetation on this part of the hill overlooking Cannes. The all-glass facade breathes with the outside environment, mirroring the wooded landscape. 

This design for an exceptional luxury home in Cannes reflects the expertise in contemporary architecture, perfectly integrated into its environment, that architects Thomas Vielliard and Jacques Francheteau bring to each of their projects.


This luxurious villa, set in a green setting overlooking the sea, embodies the architectural ambitions of Vielliard & Francheteau in every detail. A signature that can be recognized by the choice of raw materials highlighted for their intrinsic qualities, the use of large glass walls erasing all boundaries between interior and exterior spaces, the decompartmentalization of spaces that opens up perspectives and clears the horizons of their residents.

Whether a luxury seaside villa or an exceptional contemporary home nestled in a lush Mediterranean garden, each creation is designed to meet the specific needs and aspirations of our distinguished customers. The architectural approach is based on the harmonious fusion of refined aesthetics and uncompromising functionality. Each project is guided by a passionate quest to achieve the ultimate in elegant, timeless design.

At Vielliard & Francheteau, this holistic vision of luxury residential architecture applies as much to the construction of contemporary homes as to the renovation or extension of existing prestigious residences. The result is an entire lifestyle embodied by exceptional living spaces: home cinema, private wine cellar, luxury sauna, private SPA, garage for classic cars and top-of-the-range landscaped gardens.
