Where is Riviera filmed? - Filming Locations for the Sky series

There are no limits to all kinds of excess in the playground of the world's super-rich. Once a friend told me that boats, whores and cocaine are the new sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. Add glamour, art crime and murder, and we've got the basic ingredients of Riviera, the new Sky series.

The show's 10 episodes explore the dark secrets that obscene wealth covers with sun-kissed ultra-luxury. Julia Stiles plays the role of Georgina, the wife of a billionaire art collector killed in a supposed accident, that she decides to investigate. The cast also includes Iwan Rheon (Ramsay from Game Of Thrones), Adrian Lester and Roxane Duran.

Riviera was filmed on location in the exclusive French Riviera, la Côte d'Azur. Nowadays very few productions come here to film as costs are very high. However, this British pan-European drama (made in times of Brexit) had a generous budget, bringing a breath of fresh air to the world of filming locations:

Riviera series House
A key location in Riviera is Villa Carmella, or the Château Diter in Mougins. The Clios family home is a renaissance-style palace with its own vineyard, two helipads and three swimming pools. It's situated on the countryside of Provence but in the heart of a crossroads between Saint-Tropez, Cannes and Monaco. Image courtesy of Sky - Map
