Measuring 10,000 square feet, Mille Fleurs, or ”thousand flowers” in French, is located on the Saanich Inlet in British Columbia. Tucked behind gates, the eight-bedroom estate appears every bit the historic European estate, but was actually just built 10 years ago. It comes equipped with every luxurious amenity you’d expect, like a wine room, pizza oven, and 17th-century fireplace imported from France. There’s also a summer house, along with a 2,000-square-foot guest cottage, in case any of the family plans on stopping by for a visit with Baby Archie.
The natural surroundings of the estate are also clearly a draw for Harry and Meghan, who love to head out for strolls with the dogs and Archie. Surrounded by Vancouver Island’s majestic mountains, lakes, glaciers, and waterfalls, it’s the perfect spot for any outdoorsy adventure enthusiast.
“Harry and Meghan have the best of both worlds in this Old World-style mansion with modern amenities, set amid the glorious Canadian landscape of mountains, lakes, glaciers and waterfalls,” says Erik Gunther, realtor.com celebrity real estate expert.
This won’t be the first time that Harry and Meghan hung out at Mille Fleurs. According to Page Six, they spent six weeks there over the Christmas holiday. By the way, if you’re wondering to whom the palatial spread belongs, The Mirror reports that Mille Fleurs is owned by a Russian oligarch.
