Provence has a strong history of being a land of opportunities. Indeed, since ancient Rome, its coastlines have been an ideal migration spot for shepherds in search of pastures and for those who wanted to settle and make a living from agriculture (vineyards, olive trees ...). Nowadays, it is also because of its climate that the French Riviera continues to constantly attract new inhabitants. Full of a vast and exceptionally varied traditions, the Provencal housing heritage still seduces and fascinates. Discover an overview of some real estate treasures that can be found in this beautiful region.
You can also find in French Riviera a wide choice of properties close to the sea. When you get closer to the coastline, you will find many properties in very different styles.
The distance from the beach is a key element of your real estate project ? The French Riviera is full of properties right in front of the water. These villas give you direct access to the sea, so you can admire the magnificent Mediterranean views.
If you prefer spectacular views of the sea, French Riviera offers magnificent contemporary villas located on the heights. Many have large bay windows, perfectly adapted to their environment, and offer the most beautiful views of the sea.
Finally, if you are looking for a house with character, there are many seaside Belle-Époque style properties. Built in the early XVIII century, these exceptional properties represent the architectural innovations of the beginning of this century, symbols of the emerging local bourgeoisie. New materials and new construction techniques bring character and history to these properties.
