Sir Elton has previously hosted David and Victoria Beckham, comedian David Walliams and actor couple Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka in the property 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 32-mile drive from Cannes, which hosts the annual film festival, and according to the Hollywood Reporter, he enjoys tending his plants in the property’s garden.

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 images of the four seasons, while his bedroom is panting Andy Warhol.

The house is also said to have a tower room overlooking the Mediterranean, a metal mask sculpture by Roy Lichtenstein, and covers for the chairs to match 14 sets of porcelain.

Sir Elton is one of the many celebrities who enjoy Nice as a playground of the rich – with others such as actress Dame Joan Collins, U2 frontman Bono, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, actor Sean Connery and singer Tina Turner.

The singer entered into a civil partnership with Canadian filmmaker David in December 2005, before tying the knot when same-sex marriage became legal in England and Wales in March 2014.

The couple are parents to sons Zachary, nine, and Elijah, seven.
