Home of the Week: Pablo Picasso Once Used This Spectacular French Villa as a Studio. It Just Listed for $27 Million.

There are many fabled South of France villas with storied histories featuring glamorous guests (just take a look at the most recent installment of Downton Abbey). But few can compete with the history of La Vigie—which has recently come to market for $27 million. The property—which is set close to Cap D’Antibes—was originally completed in 1912 and offers an enviable location directly facing the azure Mediterranean. First built for a wealthy local family, the property was sold in 1926 to the American mogul Frank Gould whose French socialite wife, Florence Lacaze, filled it with global swells ranging from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Jean Cocteau to Pablo Picasso himself.
