Dolce and Gabbana’s Former French Riviera Retreat Lists for €17 Million

A French Riviera villa that previously belonged to Dolce and Gabbana has hit the market. A palatial three-story oceanfront villa on the French Riviera that was previously owned by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana—better known as Dolce and Gabbana—hit the market on Monday for €17 million (US$20.1 million).

The contemporary six-bedroom coastal spread is in Roquebrune Cap Martin, some five miles northeast of Monaco, and is “undeniably one of the most inviting properties on the Riviera,” according to Alex Balkin, executive director of Savills’ French Riviera, the brokerage handling the listing.

“It is clear there is a unique charm to this setting and property which undoubtedly attracted the current owner and one that the seal of approval from the former illustrious owners definitely confirms,” Mr. Balkin said.

The owners purchased the property from the Italian fashion mavens in 2012 and embarked on a full refurbishment of the property that embraces a Mediterranean-inspired aesthetic and combines “sharp design with a welcoming atmosphere,” according to the brokerage.

Mansion Global couldn’t identify the owners of the villa, or how much they paid for it. Savills Despite their overhaul of the property, elements of the Dolce & Gabbana era remain, including a catwalk-style wooden bench on the terrace, which would be used for impromptu fashion shows with and for their guests, Savills said.

Reached via a sweeping driveway, the villa has an open-plan living area with a relaxation zone, a lounge, a dining space and a sleek modern kitchen with skylights, according to the listing.

Upstairs are two main bedroom suites, each with private terraces and sea views, and down on the garden level on the home—a space ideal for guests due to its privacy—is a living area and office, a kitchenette and three more bedrooms. Savills There are a number of terraces throughout the home, including a covered dining terrace, a favorite spot of the owner due to its “exceptional views,” the listing said.

Outside on the home’s lush grounds—complete with palm trees and Mediterranean plants—an infinity pool is joined by a cabana, a fitness terrace, a boules pitch, a staff security room and independent accommodation.

Mr. Dolce, 62, and Mr. Gabbana, 58, founded their eponymous brand in 1985, and both are worth upward of $1 billion, according to Forbes.
