The capital of the French Riviera
Situated right by the azur blue shores of the Mediterranean Sea in the south east part of France, you will find Nice. It is the fifth largest city in France. The international airport is located only 5 km from the city centre.
The city was founded in 350 B.C. and became very popular in the beginning of the 20th century thanks to the numerous royal families and celebrities that flocked there. Nice offers a 7-km long boardwalk, beautiful beaches and all sorts of shopping, making it one of the most visited cities.
For some years now, Nice has been undergoing a face-lift; buildings are being repaired and repainted, streets are closed for cars in favor of the new tramway that take you through the entire city from the harbor area directly to the airport. Many want to buy an apartment in Carré d’Or, the golden square, is one of the most elegant areas in Nice. Others are looking for properties for sale in Mont Boron. Fabron, to the east, is also very popular because of the villas, houses and apartments with wonderful views over the sea for sale. In Fabron the prices are a little more affordable for houses and apartments for sale in the south of France.
In terms of leisure, Nice offers the combination of sun, sea and winter sports in the mountains nearby as well as the pulse of a big city with a wide range of restaurants, night clubs and shopping.
