Lionel Messi and his family appear to have discovered their residence in Paris, following a month-long stay at the luxurious five-star Royal Monceau. They have settled into a magnificent castle worth £41 million, known for previously accommodating Charles De Gaulle.
Lionel Messi appears to have finally chosen a permanent residence in France, and it is a £41 million mansion located on the outskirts of Paris. Although not as grand as Versailles, this mansion, also known as the ‘Pink Palace,’ was briefly occupied by French President Charles De Gaulle for three days during the Second World War in 1940.
After leaving Barcelona when his contract expired, Messi joined PSG this summer. The 34-year-old bid an emotional farewell to Barcelona, his home for over 20 years, in a tearful press conference before arriving in the French capital a couple of days later.
After only a month, Messi seems to have found his home in Paris.
Messi and his family live outside the main villa.
The castle appears incredibly large from its exterior.
Since his arrival in Paris, Messi and his family have been residing at the Royal Monceau, a luxurious five-star hotel situated in the center of the city. According to the hotel’s website, it is described as a modern and lively design masterpiece located in the heart of the City of Lights. The hotel offers various amenities, including a spa with a wide range of treatments and luxurious living facilities.
However, Messi is determined not to remain confined to a hotel, as was the case with Jose Mourinho during his time at Manchester United, who stayed at the Lowry.
A cinema room is available in the residence.
The pool is also exquisitely luxurious.
Messi’s wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, has been given the responsibility of finding a suitable home for the family. As Messi’s childhood sweetheart and a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, she has a specific set of requirements that the property must meet.
The desired property should include an indoor pool, a gym, several children’s rooms, a private and secure parking lot, a home cinema, air conditioning, and a garden. These parameters resemble the features of their previous home in Barcelona.
The kitchen is incredibly luxurious and well-appointed.
Lionel Messi likes to play pool.
It seems that she has discovered her desired property in the expansive ‘Pink Palace,’ a 2000 square meter mansion constructed in 1899. This property is listed by Sotheby’s and is described as a tranquil and luxurious haven located just 20 minutes west of Paris.
Situated within the beautiful Ibis Parc of Le Vésinet, this remarkable Grand Trianon palace, recognized as a historical monument, offers 2000 square meters of space suitable for both family living and entertainment purposes.
Lionel Messi would be enjoying a truly regal sleeping experience in the mansion.
It is simple to understand why Messi’s estate is valued at £41 million.
“The property consists of the main villa, which boasts multiple reception rooms, four suites, a cinema, a playroom, an indoor swimming pool, a squash court, and a gym. Additionally, there is a caretaker villa, accommodations for staff, and a guest house spanning 500 square meters with four suites. The property is complemented by garages and set within impeccably maintained and lush landscaped grounds spanning 7000 square meters.”
It is worth noting that Messi made his debut for PSG against Stade de Reims before the international break.
