A French Villa’s Scandalous Past

A French Villa, Villa Marizzina, on the market for $32.87 million was originally built in 1901. It has seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms. This villa was renovated completely before being available for sale. The villa found by the French Riviera is the site where an exiled Russian aristocrat, Grand Duke Andrei Vladimirovich, and a Russian ballerina, Mathilde Kshessinska, lived. The two were romantically involved and running from the Russian revolution. The renovations and remodeling can’t hide the history of this villa.

Key Takeaways:

  • Villa Marizzina was once the home of Russian ballerina Mathilde Kschessinska and Grand Duke Andrei Vladimirovich.
  • Now, more than century later, the seven-bedroom, seven-bathroom Villa Marizzina is on the market for €30 million, or about $32.87 million.
  • nothing could erase the home’s unusual history—a tale of an exiled Russian aristocrat and his lover, a famous ballerina who fled the Russian Revolution.

“This 1901 villa on the French Riviera recently underwent a top-to-bottom renovation.”
