Overview

Charlie Luxton takes his coastal property showcase to the sun-kissed beaches of the Mediterranean.

Starting the journey on the Costa Brava, Charlie traverses the Med, visiting a range of architectural masterpieces, ranging from surreal and abstract homes to a restored 1960’s villa. Along the way he visits the former home of Briget Bardot in the Cote d’ Azure, a home carved into the rocks above Mallorca and a property with a guest suite that appears to float above the ocean in Crete.

This is a show that shatters the illusion of classic European homes and shows how the magnificent Mediterranean landscape gives rise to immense creativity and ingenuity of design.
