Are you looking for properties in Grasse so that you can settle in the South of France? Grasse is an investment hotspot, and these are the some of the best homes for sale in this up-and-coming Riviera town…
The perfume capital of the world’s property market has blossomed over the last few years. A project called Espace Martelly has rejuvenated many areas of Grasse, which has encouraged international investors to buy up property in the area. Prices are still up to 25% lower than in more well-known neighbouring Riviera towns.
The work is still ongoing, but when it is completed in 2021, Grasse’s top-notch amenities will include a new four-star hotel, quality shops, five-screen cinema, theatre, casino, modern offices and public gardens.
More good news for Grasse property investors was announced recently. A new financial award called “Action Coeur de Ville” will also be injected into the town’s transformation, creating even more beneficial medium-to-long-term investment opportunities.
If you are looking to buy property in the South of France, then consider Grasse. You can watch a France 24 film about today’s perfume-making process in Grasse here:
