Apparently, the best Bond of all time kinda lived like 007, himself. Sean Connery bought the place in 1975 with his wife, Micheline Roquebrune, and they lived there for over a decade. The palatial villa in the South of France appeared in 1983’s “Never Say Never Again” and is now up for sale. The home’s French architecture of the 1920s has kind of style and appointments you’d expect from the first 00 agent we ever knew. Down the coast from the town of Nice, near the scenic Mediterranean Sea, Villa La Roc Fleuri is a sight to behold and also bears some of the best views from its cliff-side location. 10,700 square feet of space includes indoor and outdoor pools, an indoor fitness complex, landscaped terraces along the sea, a two-car garage, and even two guest villas for the less savory friends and family. The current owners expanded the property, so the villa is located on an expansive 1.25-acre lot and a long, scenic drive to its entrance. The asking price is a mere $33.87 million.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
