The Land of Contrast, That Is The French Riviera


The French Riviera or Côte d’Azur has been the summer playground of choice for the rich and famous for well over a century, enjoying the best climate in France and some of the most stunning coastal scenery. Ever since the 1960’s the Riviera has attracted famous Artists, Writers and glamorous Celebrities including the French actress Bridget Bardot, who made her home in the enchanting village of St Tropez, where today this exceptional 7 bedroom villa with outstanding sea views and private heliport can be enjoyed for 12 600 000 Euros. Heading east around the bay, close to the medieval village of Grimaud is the beautiful 5 bedroom villa seen below, in a prestigious and private domaine, for sale at 1 050 000 Euros.

Measuring more than 3km long, the promenade of ‘La Croisette’ is considered one of the jewels of Cannes. Here in the Bay of Cannes, real estate is highly prized and from where you can saunter along the beautiful beaches meters from an array of glamorous shops, restaurants, cafés, shaded gardens and a harbour filled with magnificent yachts.

Nice on the other hand revels in its sense of ‘old-world opulence’. Especially Old Nice, with its tiny cobblestone streets, lined with ancient pastel-hued buildings, from where the scent of fresh lavender, olives and cheeses infuse the lively markets and where bars and cafés in the tree lined squares offer a shady rest bite from the heat of the sun.

With easy access to the Italian Riviera at its Eastern end and the beautiful hinterland of Provence behind, easy access to the foothills of the Alps is another plus point. Venturing forth into the hills above these seaside resorts, you’ll soon discover the ‘Arriere-Pays’; where the stylish hilltop towns of Vence and Grasse attract international buyers to their Provençal style villas and where prices can be surprisingly affordable. In the picturesque medieval village of Fayence, less than an hour from the sea and centre of Cannes, you'll find the fabulous five-bedroom villa below, with a beautiful garden for just 685,000 Euros.

In the village of Tourtour, where ancient towers date back to the 11th century, and views stretching out over the Provençal countryside simply take your breath away, Leggett are offering the beautiful 6 bedroom, 4 bathroom, newly built villa below, with its outstanding views and glorious swimming pool, for just 850,000 Euros.
