The French Riviera, or Cote d’Azur as it’s known to the French, is one of the best known and sought-after locations to buy property in France, if not the world! Artists, musicians, and actors (amongst others) have been coming here over the years for the Mediterranean Sea air, the golden beaches, great climate, beautiful rocky coves and lively cultural scene and nightlife.
Buying a property in Saint Tropez often tops most people’s lists of where to buy a home in France. Located in the Var, its stunning beaches, charming old town, luxurious port filled with luxury yachts and its host of excellent restaurants and beach bars, St Tropez really is the place to be! The road from St Tropez to Cannes features some beautiful towns that are also reasonably priced, such as Grimaud, Sainte Maxime, Frejus and Saint Raphael. Saint Raphael is a place that combines great value for money and exquisite scenery, thanks to the Esterel mountain range, a red rocky coastal mountainous area, ideal for walking and cycling.
Cannes is world famous for its international film festival, luxury boutiques and top end hotels. Buying a property in Cannes is a great investment and a place where one can live the jet set lifestyle on The French Riviera. Nice is the Alpes Maritimes largest town and a good place to purchase for its bustling lifestyle, beautiful city centre and world-renowned beach strip the “Promenade des Anglais”. Easy access from Nice Airport and a prominent expat community makes Nice a favourite with international buyers looking to purchase a property on The Cote d’Azur.
The coastal town of Antibes has long been a favourite for both French and foreign buyers alike. With its castle, cathedral, and Southern Alps as a backdrop, you can’t help but be charmed by this stunning setting; the ideal place to purchase a home on The French Riviera. If you’re looking for a very special location you might want to consider the peninsular of Saint Jean Cap Ferrat. Along with Saint Tropez, Saint Jean Cap Ferrat is one of the most sought after and therefore expensive places to buy real estate on The Cote d’Azur.
