The Cote d’Azur, once an unassuming coastline along the Mediterranean, is now one of the world’s most beautiful, vibrant and sought-after locations for buying a luxury property. Iconic towns and cities like Cannes, Nice and Saint-Tropez embody the area’s elite lifestyle with their unbeatable nightlife, designer shopping and world-renowned restaurants, not to mention stunningly beautiful beaches.
Also called the French Riviera, the Cote d’Azur is in the southeast corner of France, extending along the sea all the way to the Italian border. The area sees around 300 days of sunshine each year, which is why practically every luxury home here has a vast outdoor area and sometimes even private beach access. The winter season can be relatively mild, too – unless you head into the nearby French Alps for a weekend of snowboarding or skiing, of course. The region is also known for its healthy gourmet meals with a focus on fresh seafood, as well as delicious wine that’s made right in Provence.
Whether you plan to live in the Cote d’Azur year-round or you want a second home to escape to now and then, you’re in for a leisurely and pleasure-filled experience. While the area is known for being first-rate in everything from dining and shopping to real estate and yachting, the only pressure you should feel is to bask in the good life. Spend your days soaking up the sun poolside or seaside, the scent of perfume in the air and boats going by on the Med. Once the night falls, you can head to a casino, nightclub or rooftop terrace and stay until dawn if you’d like.
