Pierre Cardin’s $400M ‘Bubble Palace’ in France Up for Sale

“House-hunting in the Cannes, France, area and find modern linearity staid, or downright stolid? Then you may want to take a tour of Pierre Cardin’s 1970s fantasy of a mansion: Palais Bulles, the ‘Bubble Palace’ that the late fashion czar owned for the past three decades. The home is looking for a new owner, and first hit the market in 2017 for $420 million.” The current price is available on request, according to American Luxury article which includes more photos.

Pierre Cardin

“Each of the home’s ten bedrooms received a unique treatment at the hands of a different prominent designer of the era. Lines are graceful, but on the whole surprisingly less extravagant than one might expect. It is large, though; interiors measure in at a whisker less than 13,000 sq. ft. and the property’s living areas are distributed over six levels on a promontory setting overlooking Cannes and Nice.

To enhance its Mediterranean setting, there are many indoor/outdoor living spaces, as well as a series of swimming pools and water features amid the tropical and semi tropical plantings and lawns. There are over two acres of terraces and gardens to augment this extraordinary house.”


Well, yes, I suppose one would expect an “extraordinary” house for an “extraordinary” price.
