She likes a little water does our Sealion Dion. So much so that some reports have her draining the whole of Florida or somesuch (which we find hard to believe – there’s so much water in Florida) for this little Petit Trianon of a swimming pool/amusement park/principality (well, we think it’s bigger than Monaco. And in much better taste!)
What it is is… a house (we’re liking the white roofs, by the way. Celebrity houses often have such ugly roofs. Don’t they think of Santa’s view when they’re building these things?) with a nice swimming pool looking onto the sea. Bit of decking, loungers… nice. Well, that’s just that bit up there.
Come out of the back door (don’t mind if we do!) after you’ve had your chocolate covered croissants flown in specially from Paris and it’s a whole other ouija board-game of cards.
Get past the already rather impressive pool and explore if you will the extensive slidery for that small Celine Dion child with the long hair to bomb down. Finger on your screen the ‘lazy river’, which has a current to waft swimmers round and peruse what seem to be three beaches, where we would have lifeguards in Speedos with the lining cut out, vodkas and tonics with a squish of lime and mini ice buckets with little bottles of poppers, which always go down so well whilst swimming. Or bumming. Or bumming while swimming.
The neighbours are up in arms (about water use and wells being dug and something and nothing) but we’re already packing sarongs and high but comfy corky wedgies. Not because we’ve been invited. It’s just a nice thing to do on a Tuesday after lunch.
Which celebrity would lavish $20 million of their hard-earned on this little pile, a hop, skip and a jump from the ocean? Guess. Go on, just guess. We'll start you off. Is it Gloria Estefan? No, it's Celine Dion.,
