Sir Elton has previously hosted the likes of David and Victoria Beckham, comedian David Walliams and actor couple Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka at the property which was once dubbed his ‘Pink Villa’.

He bought the Belle Epoque villa surrounded by the green spaces of Mont Boron in the 1990s and locals have described it as the ‘Bel Air of Nice’ thanks to the concentration of multimillion-pound mansions in the area. 

Sir Elton’s home is just a 20-mile drive away from Cannes, where the annual film festival is held, and he is said to enjoy tending to his plants in the garden of the property, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The property was built in the 1920s and adapted by Sir Elton with designers Fred Dilger and Monique Gibson. 

The pool now features Egyptian Deco statues of the four seasons, while his bedroom has an Andy Warhol panting. 

The home is also said to feature a tower room overlooking the Mediterranean, a metal mask sculpture by Roy Lichtenstein and slipcovers for the chairs with co-ordinate with 14 sets of china.
