Finding a home in the French Riviera means you can escape your everyday life for regular holidays abroad. Alternatively, you may choose to relocate permanently and change your way of life altogether. Picturesque beaches, exclusive clubs and restaurants, VIP events and high-end shopping can fill your days or nights, and when you return home you can continue living in luxury.
Whether you prefer a residential area or a setting right in the heart of a town or city, homes in the Cote d’Azur never disappoint. Plus, you’ll be able to enjoy sunshine practically every day of the year, and temperatures are always mild enough to spend time outside.
Here are five of the most expensive, luxurious homes you can own on the French Riviera.
1. Impressive Estate in the Cannes Hillside
Set on the French Riviera in the Cannes hillside, this impressive estate overlooks the sea. There are eight bedrooms in the main villa, and the outbuildings have ten more. Amongst the beautifully groomed landscaping are a tennis court and an enormous pool area that can accommodate several guests. There are floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the home, and the formal dining room is lit with shimmering chandeliers. Additionally, the home has an eight-car garage.
2. Stunning Roquebrune-Cap-Martin Estate
Price: €59 Million

3. Beautifully Landscaped Estate in Mougins
Price: €38.5 Million
