French Riviera: The invitation to Pierre Cardin’s Bubble house must have got lost in the post.
Seeing it from the outside would have to suffice.
But seeing it from a speed boat on the French Riviera is a pretty good vantage point.
The Palais Bullas,, or Bubbles Palace, was put back on the market a few years ago – well, fashion god Pierre was well into his 90s by then.
For £300m the specs for the 12,000sqm complex, the haunt of many a celeb, included.
Ten space-aged rooms, three swimming pools, a 500-seater amphitheatre and lush gardens.
Chic: On the French Riviera
And it has A golf course nearby, Continental Europe’s first, The Old Course, which Pierre’s gaffe doesn’t.
Still, repose en paix, Pierre.
