Luxury, exclusivity and a magnificent outlook

Capturing majestic Mediterranean and Monaco views and displaying a remarkable commitment to quality throughout, this tri-level family masterwork offers a lifestyle of luxury, privacy, quiet, and exquisite charm - the perfect retreat for those who seek a break from the bustling world yet still access it quickly.

The bewildering residence is set in a serene area at the top of the medieval village of Roquebrune.

There are some places to which no words can do justice – trying to condense their appeal into a few short lines leaves you wanting more or, even worse, make its charm elude you entirely. Describing L’hirondelle is like trying to clutch a soothing wind: this is an almost indescribable marvel in a setting that is exceptional in more than one way.

This unique 2,100m2 property overlooks Roquebrune and affords an unforgettable view of Cap Martin and Monaco. Cradled by a benevolent cliff, it features an Italian-inspired garden with a swimming pool,  swaying cypress tress, murmuring fountains and cool, tree-lined terraces.

And then there is the building itself, or rather the buildings. This is where the full charm and distinctive character of L’Hirondelle truly unfolds. First, there is the main house, with three stories and then, at the bottom of a park, a ‘cottage':  an ideal house for guests or for an independent family member.

The ‘historic’ house has two en suite bedrooms with terraces;   the cottage has one.  Each of the houses has refined and elegant living rooms, separate kitchens, sun-lit verandas or warm lounges with hearths or a terrace.

A few feet from a secured indoor parking, rare feature given the layout of the site, there are myriad striking idiosyncrasies that help set L’hirondelle apart, yet the property retains a noble and singularly sophisticated harmony.

The future owner of this property will be someone who has fallen under its spell and become enchanted by its unique design, as well as its location wonderfully close to one of the loveliest villages on the Riviera.
