Luxury, the Palais Bulles on the French Riviera does not beat anything. The Bubble Palace is the most opulent, eclectic house on the French Riviera, as it is affectionately known. Built in 1975 by the Hungarian architect Antti Lovag in Théoule-Sur-Mer in the region of Cannes, it was sold to Pierre Cardin in 1991, following a 14-year building period. Now that the legendary French fashion designer dies on 29 December what will happen to this reputable private estate?
The house was listed in 2017 for 420 million dollars and was not sold. Although the local real estate brokers are the artwork of their own right, they call it the property nobody wants to buy. For several years, Palais Bulles has been on the market, yet the international sales agent Michael Zingraf of Christie’s International Real Estate refused to comment on its availability.
This house of 13,000 square feet has 29 rooms, 10 dormitories, 11 bathrooms and an outdoor private auditorium for 500 people. Cardin would rent $33,200 a day to holiday groups.
Cardin never lived in the mansion, prefer to live in the neighbourhood, as it was for entertainment purposes only. In 2017, the New York Times said Zingraf was a treasured work of art. He clarified, “It’s not about money alone. “It takes somebody who falls in love, and somebody who understands and shares the vision of Mr Cardin.” The future of Palais Bulles is unknown, says Hugh Wade-Jones, managing director of Enness Global Mortgages.
“While the Palais Bulles is an outstanding piece of land, it’s usually an elephant,” added Wade-Jones. He doesn’t think that someone should be hired. He doesn’t believe. “It’d be a shame to see such a beautiful piece of property waste,” he adds that “maybe a reconstruction could be found in the commercial market.” “In his current state, it’s sadly ultimately useless.”
The house is certainly an artistic piece. The round shape of the bubble is reminiscent of the futuristic design style of Cardin from the 1960s. “This palace has become my own small piece of paradise,” Cardin observed from Palais Bulles. It represented the external manifestations of the image of my creations for a long time through its cellular formations.
