In Côte d'Azur, one can find the small, historic commune of Saint-Jeannet. This house in the hills was used as the notorious jewel thief John Robie's ( played by Cary Grant) villa in Hitchcock's classic 1955 film To Catch a Thief. The property was featured prominently in the beginning of the movie, when Robie evades the police after they come to seize him for questioning after the latest string of jewel thefts. The movie also ends with Grant and Grace Kelly together on the villa's terrace.
