Largo’s Palmyra Estate in Ian Fleming’s Thunderball

This home is owned by Largo in the 1961 Thunderball movie, the second movie in the series, although slated to be first, it couldn’t escape scheduling complications.

Facing certain death, James Bond has to deal with sharks in the pool on the left side of the house, only to escape what has become a series of needlessly complicated punishment dished out by one of the many villains he encounters.

The pool was specially built by the studio for the movie.
