A jaw-dropping private Provencal estate sitting majestically above the French Riviera that was once Brigitte Bardot's home has gone on the market for €5,950,000 (approximately £5,235,000).
Le Castelet is an historically-rich property dating back to the 13th century, with the original foundations being laid during Roman times with thick medieval stone walls.
It was once a holiday home to Hollywood star Brigitte Bardot, but is now an exclusive, high-end boutique retreat. The actress spent a lot of time here in the 1950s following her divorce from her first husband.
The estate boasts breathtaking panoramic views over the Estérel Mountains and Cannes Bay, and is set in picturesque surroundings peppered with timeworn olive groves, and even its own vineyard.
The estate features several buildings on four floors (with a lift to help you zip around more efficiently), two heated pools, a Jacuzzi, an artist studio and caretaker premises.

You'll also find two pool houses with summer kitchens - perfect for all those pool parties you'll be hosting - all lovingly renovated and tastefully decorated with the finest authentic materials.
Nestled in its lush, lavish gardens, olive trees, and vineyard, there's 14 suites, as well as vast reception rooms, outbuildings and recreational areas.
The interiors are as you might expect: grand and opulent with a traditional air. The hallway features a sweeping red staircase, while the lounge boasts statement art and those epic views.
The reception also oozes character with exposed stone walls and time wooden beams.
Just a short 30 minutes to vibrant Cannes, this tranquil estate has upscale restaurants and shopping on its doorstep, combining the best of both worlds.
The soul-stirring property is for sale via Christie's International Real Estate for sale €5,950.000.
