On October 31, 2020, the world of cinema bade farewell to the first of all James Bond films: British actor Sean Connery. In addition to bequeathing an indelible memory in the memory of moviegoers, the latter has left behind a sizeable real estate heritage, including in particular a villa set on the heights of Nice overlooking the sumptuous Bay of Angels. Nicknamed the “Villa James Bond” by the locals, the property of 1000 m2 has been on sale since the death of its owner. But sold at a price of 30 million euros, the residence of the former secret agent has still not found a buyer …
Faced with the silence of potential buyers, the agency in charge of the villa revised its sales strategy. She chose to divide the property in half and sell only the main building for 15 million euros, which is half the starting price. For this sum, the new owner will still have eight bedrooms and an indoor pool. What, despite everything, to afford a daily worthy of agent 007.

Revealed in 1962 as the British secret agent, Sean Connery lends his features to James Bond in seven of the films of the franchise: James Bond 007 against Dr. No in 1962, With love from Russia in 1963, Goldfinger in 1964, Operation Tonnerre in 1965, You only live once in 1967, Diamonds are forever in 1971 and in the unofficial film Never Again in 1983. Become an icon of British cinema, he was knighted in 2000 by Queen Elizabeth II for services rendered to British cinema. He is, according to Roger Moore (who succeeded him as 007 in 1973), “the best James Bond of all time”.
