This home tour has to be one of the dreamiest we've ever taken: it's Sean Connery's Bond villa, people! Yes, the one that featured in Never Say Never Again. Sir Connery remains the most loved of the nine actors who have played 007, and his off-screen lifestyle, by the looks of this spectacular South of France villa, is just as glamorous as that of the world's most famous fictional spy.

First, there's the location: perched on a picturesque hilltop overlooking the Bay of Nice. Following the success of the Bond franchise, the Scottish actor relocated first to Spain, and then to the South of France; we don't blame him – the sea views are stunning there, especially when enjoyed from a saltwater outdoor pool.
The main stonehouse villa is built in the classic 1920s style and is covered in wisteria outside. Inside, the the five bedrooms and five bathrooms are spread over five floors, with a grand entrance hall featuring floor-to-ceiling windows with bay views.
The interior style is understated and relaxed French chic, with well-proportioned rooms featuring traditional furniture and windows offering sea views. The upper-level master suite has his-and-her baths, a dressing room, and a private balcony. The bottom level has a fitness complex with gym, hammam and large indoor swimming pool that opens to the gardens, shower and dressing areas.
Speaking of the views – wouldn't you pay $33.87 million just for that view alone? The South of France has attracted artists, actors, and just about anyone who loves the sea for over a century; we don't doubt that this beautiful home will be snapped right up.
