About Villa Opera

Villa Opera is so serenely tucked away, it’d be easy to forget you’re just a short drive from Monaco… if it weren’t for the stunning views reminding you at every turn. Set within the hilltop commune of La Turbie. this property was once the home of Russian ballet star Rudolf Nureyev. It’s an elegant, family-friendly place for your Riviera escape. 

While the outside of Villa Opera looks positively Provençal, inside the décor is modern and stylish. From the spacious living room, you can wander straight onto the outdoor terrace to enjoy the sea view. 

Six elegant bedrooms are spread across the main building and annex. The annex itself offers room to grand jeté to your heart’s content, as Nureyev would attest (the gym was once his dance studio). It’s perfect for teenagers or grandparents who want a little more privacy. 

Outside, the private garden offers a scenic spot for a family game of badminton, while the heated pool is hemmed by trees and overlooks the ocean.

Nearby, the Roman ruin of Trophee d’Auguste is well worth a visit, as is the Monte-Carlo Golf Club. You’re also just a five-minute drive from Monaco and all it has to offer.
