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.

"Villa des Bijoux" is the official name of the property.

The villa flagged in the picture is not the correct one. It is close to this one though. It can be found with a little web searching homework.

Look up 328 Route De St. Jeannet on Google Earth, then check out Street Veiw & you have found the house.
