The Château Garibondy, also refered to as the ‘Château du Cannet‘ is a magnificent castle located in the hills above Cannes in Le Cannet which has been inhabited by noblemen and aristocracy since the 18th Century. Important historical figures such as Lord Brougham, known as the official founder of Cannes, Sir Alfred and Lady Cecilia Paget, Queen Victoria, King Edward VII and Princess Diana of Wales’ stepmother Countess de Chambrun have all resided at the Château Garibondy. Today, this stunning property steeped in history is owned by an English family and is available for rent for weddings, holidays and special events.

The Château Garibondy has 11 bedrooms and bathrooms accommodating 22 people comfortably with separate accommodation in a 3 bedroom villa / barn conversion  for a further 6 guests. The property has 2 wonderful south-facing terraces ideal for outside dining. Inside the Château are several  spaces great for entertaining such as the drawing-room and the Wedgewood dining room.

During the summer months, dining can be open air whereas in the winter months a marquee can be constructed to provide protection from possible bad weather.
