The world’s most expensive house is on the Côte d’Azur

With grounds so grand that it takes a reputed 50 gardeners to tend them, the Villa Leopolda in Villefranche-sur-Mer has been snapped up by the Russian billionaire, Mikhail Prokhorov, for some 500 million euros. The deal is to be finalised next month.
