Not everyone can be a Hollywood star partying at the Cannes Film Festival. But those willing to fork out 275,350 pounds, or about $462,000, can get pretty close.
A luxury package offered by Oliver’s Travels during the May 14-24 festival lets travelers play celebrities for four days at a two-bedroom villa in the French Riviera, complete with a personal stylist, hairdresser, jeweler and security team.
The latter isn’t just for show either, as the faux celebrities will have up to 1 million pounds worth of diamonds at their disposal – on loan, of course. Other perks include a helicopter ride over the Cote d’Azur and airport transfers in one of 43 sports cars. If that doesn’t bring out your inner celebrity, nothing will.
