About the Côte d'Azur

The Cote d'Azur is often referred to as the 'playground of the rich', and rightly so in our opinion! The region features stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea, whilst also giving easy access to the nearby Alpes-Maritimes. Properties in places such as Monaco, St Tropez, Cannes are always popular, while Saint-Jean Cap Ferrat can provide some of the most stunning properties on the coastline. The Cote d'Azur begins at the western point of St. Tropez, and ends at Menton, just on the Italian border - all of which is easily accessible from the perfectly positioned A8 autoroute, or the SNCF train service, meaning that you can be anywhere on the Cote d'Azur within two hours by road or train - or even sooner if you can make use of the numerous helipads located throughout the region. An added bonus of the region sees easy access to nearby ski resorts which can be accessed simply by heading north, into the Alpes-Martimes.
