Prince Karim Aga Khan IV used to host parties here whose guest lists included Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve and Spanish King Juan Carlos at this 13-bedroom 1960s villa designed by Italian architect Luigi Vietti. Now, for an undisclosed amount — and for only the second time ever — it’s up for sale.

Included is the 8,600-square-foot villa (divided into three units), one choice acre of waterfront, and the guest list of your dreams. (I’d be happy with a handful of close friends and a few Peroni’s.)

You can bet that the Prince, current Imam of Nizari Ismailism, has had quite a few kicks here, but having been built by Vietti, she’s still ripe for a few more, no doubt.

You probably wouldn’t come across too much trouble trying to find a place for your yacht, either. (Again, Blues Dory would suffice.)
