villa-shambala5

A contemporary estate completed last year, Villa Shamballa is an immaculate luxury getaway in Cap-d’Ail, a seaside resort in southeastern France. The 9,300 square-foot home has 10 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a pair of terraces, two pools, a stone guest house and a “wine cave.” The $54.4 million home was put up for sale by real-estate developer Jean-Claude Rahan and his wife, Ursula Neuerburg, of the family who founded the German cigarette brand Haus Neuerburg. Atop a steep hillside, the home has sweeping views of the nearby Mediterranean. [via luxist and wsj]
