Castel d'Aglio Cap d'Ail, truly rare waterside apartment....... Pieds dans l'eau

Our cherished, fully renovated, apartment has the most exceptional panoramic sea views, in fact, sea views from every window! There is nothing in front of the of the building other than the gardens and the sea. You will have direct access to the sea from the gardens.....there are almost no apartments with direct access to the sea in Cap d'Ail.

Why is this so important to be next to the sea in Cap d'Ail? There are many properties with lovely sea views in the commune, but if you want to visit the sea you will need to trudge up and down a mountain! OK if you are an Ibis or a mountain goat, or have a car, but, then you will need to find a space to park! Parking is not too bad out of season, but pretty much impossible in mid and high seasons.

The south facing apartment which sleeps 4 persons has a total living area of 70 m2 and 12 m2 balcony and features living-room with English satellite TV, flat screen TV, WI-FI, luxury equipped kitchen, spacious, stone tiled wet room and air-conditioning. Almost full width sliding doors from the lounge open on to wonderful, large, sunny balcony which overlooks the private gardens leading to the sea.

It offers visitors an entirely unique experience. This rare apartment is an harmonious blend of luxury, tranquillity and seclusion and is located only a three minute train ride from the vibrant & dynamic life of Monte Carlo, although it only takes 20 minute to walk along the foreshore directly into the heart of Monaco, handy for busy events like the Monaco F1 Grand Prix or Tennis Tournament. Castel d'Aglio has striking views over the sparkling Mediterranean. There is a large 12m2 terrace to watch the morning sun rising over La Roche where Greta Garbo lived and the sunset over the neighbouring peninsula of Cap Ferrat. The road down to the apartment is studded with spectacular Villas with a rich history such as one previously owned by Lord Beaverbrook where Sir Winston Churchill was entertained. Its not by chance that the rich and famous holidayed in this area! Its not unusual to have a super yacht moored in front of the building.

This magnificent apartment has undergone a major refurbishment and is now a successful merger of old world French elegance and luxurious modernity.

Flooded with natural light, this bright spacious apartment is offered fully equipped with all modern conveniences to ensure you have a comfortable stay, including Egyptian cotton linen, free wifi, plenty of tourist information and recommendations so you can hit the ground running. It is located in the most desirable and prestigious neighbourhood in Cap d'Ail and is a most sought after and rare location for holiday rentals.

This is our luxury home from home that sits right on the Mediterranean, only a short glorious walk along the foreshore to Monaco, or a three minute train ride from arguably the train station with the most beautiful view in the world!

With multi million pound villas on either side of us, this is a very rare apartment on the top floor of the building, which gives spectacular seaviews out of every window. There is nothing more relaxing than falling off to sleep with the sound of waves breaking with a light breeze coming in through the arched french windows.

We have only just finished completely refurbishing this apartment to a very high standard, as its our intention to live in the apartment once we reach retirement in a year or two. We have tried to incorporate everything that we wish for ourselves- top of the range smart Sonos sound system with Amina invisible speakers throughout to keep the apartment clutter free, LED television with wifi, stoneclad luxury wet room, exquisite kitchen with high end appliances including a steam oven and combination oven, and Lapavoni coffee machine. The balcony is a super place to watch the yachts and super yachts sail by, relaxing with a book and a glass of excellent Rose wine, either sitting at the wrought iron table or stretched out on the sunbed. The whole apartment is furnished with handmade Neptune or bespoke furniture to fit the apartment imported from England. We have also installed double electric blinds inside and out for year round comfort. Everything that you would want in your own home from home!

We chose this secluded apartment for ourselves because of its wonderful position, not only in relation to its breathtaking views, easy access to the sea, and sand at Plage Mala just around the corner where you can hire kayaks or dayboards etc, but also because of its ease of access to the whole of the Cote D'Azure, Nice, Monaco and the French Riviera. The train station is only a five minute walk away, also overlooking the Mediterranean, with frequent services to Monaco(3mins), Nice (18mins), Cannes (55mins) Ventimiglia, Italy (30mins). Both the train and bus rides are inexpensive and afford stunning views of both the sea and the Corniche. The light in this part of the world has drawn so many artists over the years because of its amazing intense quality. You only have to mention Picasso, Matisse, Chagal amongst many others. Consequently there are many fine art galleries and museums displaying their work. The Villa Rothschild in Cap Ferrat is well worth a visit and is only 12 or so minutes away on the train. We enjoy walking in the Alpes Maritime in the spring and autumn, its a bit too hot in high season for we oldies!

Another big attraction for us to this area is the number of world class events that take place throughout the year. There's the annual Monaco F1 Grand Prix, the biannual Historic Grand Prix that takes place two weeks before the main Grand Prix, the Monaco Tennis Tournament, International Boat Show, not to mention the Opera in both Nice and Monaco. Many world famous Rock and Pop stars give concerts here - no doubt because they too like to take time off and relax in this beautiful part of the world.

There's a little of everything here from the peace and serenity of the apartment to the bustle of the markets and night life in both Monaco and Nice and the small towns in between. It goes without saying that there is a lot of high class designer shopping in this region if you wish it!

Castel d'Aglio is a recently (2014) restored luxury top floor apartment located in Cap d'Ail in the heart of French Riviera. The apartment overlooks the sea and is 3 minutes by train to Monaco. It is a short walk from the bus and railway stations. Due to its superb location the beaches and Monaco are either within walking distance or a couple of stops on the train.

The apartment has been sympathetically restored using high quality traditional materials and local craftsmen. In the furnishing of the apartment the prime consideration has been to create a comfortable and welcoming oasis for you after a busy day on the beautiful Cote d'Azure.

The bathroom is fully tiled with local tiles in earthy/neutral tones. The kitchen has been hand built and features a dining area which seats 6 people comfortably. It is fully equipped and will give you an opportunity to create some wonderful meals having spent the morning in Monaco. If the culinary arts are not for you then you are in the heart of Monaco which has some of finest restaurants.

Among the many other amenities on offer we have provided broadband/wifi;

Our apartment is great for all groups from parents with children, groups of friends or a romantic hideaway for

Pieds dans l'eau (Exceptionally rare Waterside property)

We have pitched our property at a very competitive rate considering the rare waterside position, size and quality of accommodation. The sea, beaches Monaco, Villefranche etc are all minutes away for a few Euros by train (this is a very important advantage as you will not need a car, which is a great inconvenience in the mid and high seasons, as it is virtually impossible to park) whereas all other apartments and villas are isolated by virtue of their position on the mountain, except for the fabulously expensive privately owned waterside villas to the right and left of the apartment.
