Villa Les Cedres - the most expensive mansion in the whole world.
Multimillionaires took a fancy to the south of France as early as the nineteenth century, when industrialists, princes and bankers erected palaces on the Mediterranean coast.
Les Cedres was built in 1830. In 1904, the estate was sold to the King of Belgium, Leopold II, who became rich through mining and rubber production in Congo.
Outside, the mansion is painted in sandy pink, characteristic of the style of the Sardinian kingdom. The rooftop terrace offers a gorgeous panoramic view: from here you can see a viaduct near the medieval city of Eze and the Alps, where the border between France and Italy passes.
From the gates of the estate to the house leads a long winding path along which planted palm trees and cedars. In front of the house there is a bronze statue of Athens. Inside, the house remained the same as it was in the heyday of the Belle Époque: luxurious living rooms with marble fireplaces and piano, chandeliers, glazed sliding doors and portraits from the 19th century in carved floor-to-ceiling frames.
Les Cedres botanical garden is considered one of the ten best gardens in the world, however, unlike the rest, it does not belong to the city or the university - it is privately owned. There are 14 thousand plants grow on 14 hectares of the estate.
It is worth adding that co-founder of Microsoft Paul Allen lives in neighboring villa.
