Let’s Snoop around F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Art Deco French Villa

By

3rd May, 2013

Alright, so you might have noticed I have a weakness for French real estate p0rn. [Sigh] I don’t know why I do this to myself. Anyhoo, check out my latest find, a 19th century restored villa up for sale on the French riviera, which writer F. Scott Fitzgerald himself allegedly acquired for a summer, where he would have entertained the likes of Ernest Hemingway. A villa fit for Gatsby himself, you might be aware that Fitzgerald spent many summers living it up along the Côte d’Azur and actually wrote The Great Gatsby while holidaying there. This particular villa however, known as the Villa Picolette, is said to be where he stayed while writing his last novel, Tender is the Night … well, at least that’s what Sotheby’s claim, who are trying to hawk the seven bedroom mansion for $35 million in a very shaky economy. But come on, let’s just pretend this is all absolutely 100% true and imagine Scott, Zelda and Erny sipping on cocktails here all summer…

And this is where you say … “Shutup and take my money”:

Hey, that bell tower and those roof tops certainly look similar to this edition of Tender is the Night
