The Daily Mail has published photos taken of Elton and David Furnish yesterday.
The couple were seen boarding their yacht, named Hercules II. They often spend the summer months at their home overlooking Nice on the French Riviera with their sons.
Elton had on a Gucci navy and orange shirt with matching shorts. David wore a hat as well as a dark green short-sleeved shirt with a blue patterned print and matching trousers.
The villa is a 20-mile drive away from Cannes, where the annual film festival is held. Elton bought the 1920s hilltop mansion in the 1990s, upgrading it with the help of designers Fred Dilger and Monique Gibson.
Egyptian Deco statues of the four seasons are by the pool (a picture follows) because there wasn't room inside, Monique has explained.
