The legendary actor Sean Connery died on October 31 at the age of 90. Micheline Roquebrune, who had been married to the Oscar winner for 45 years shared that Connery had been suffering from dementia. ‘It was no life for him,” Roquebrune told the Daily Mail following the death of her husband. Connery and Roquebrune had been living on Lyford Cay in the Bahamas but also had homes in England, Spain, and France — and his villa on the French Riveria will forever be known by locals as “Sean’s place.”
The 1902s estate was used in several scenes of Connery’s Bond-film Never Say Never Again while filming in Nice and Monaco. The home overlooks Port de Nice and is 30 minutes from Monaco. The property is located on a rocky cliff with beautiful seaside views and has been listed for $33.87 million. The villa features five bedrooms and baths, an elevator, and an entrance with floor-to-ceiling windows.
“The villa is within easy reach of Nice, Cap Ferrat, and Monaco,” selling agent Edward de Mallet Morgans said. “It has jaw-dropping views along the glittering Cote D’Azur as well as more land and grounds than you would usually get for such a waterfront property. You have the sea view, but also the coastline and inland view, so even at night-time, the view twinkles with lights.”
And the location is like none other. “One of the wonderful things about the French Riviera is the sense of stardust–a favorite haunt of royal families as well the likes of Coco Chanel, Pablo Picasso, Grace Kelly, and Sir Sean Connery,” Morgans continued.
