Here are summer 2019’s hottest properties for sale on the French Riviera

With the warmer days drawing very close, it’s time to take a look at what’s available in terms of beautiful properties with views.

From modern, Californian houses to 5 bedroom art déco villas, below is a French-Riviera flavoured selection of the hottest, most luxurious estate opportunities available for purchase in the South of France.

The dream property exists, and it is located near Cannes. The residence features a panoramic view, four living floors, two large living rooms (with matching kitchens), a bar, a piano room and a large outside patio. Here is what you’ll get for your 1000 square metres footprint building. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg: the entertainment side of the property is just as amazing. Appliances include, for instance, a large, heated swimming pool, a fitness room (with jacuzzi), a sauna and a massage room. But that’s not even the end of the list, as you can add two cellars (one for your French wines, the other for your Cuban cigars), a large dressing room, a play room and its own movie theater. Did we even mention the numerous aquariums laid out throughout the vicinity? And the separate 1-bedroom apartment?

This charming Mediterranean home closes our list. Facing true south, this villa is your ideal secondary residence in the French Riviera. The house is located within walking distance of the city center and is surrounded by all the shops you’ll need to survive a summer on the coast. Overhanging on Cap Ferrat, the property is composed of three levels and has a footprint of about 300 square meters, within its walls. The parcel features a swimming pool and its pool house, and the whole residence was recently renovated.

Hidden somewhere in Mougins, this double house with sea views has everything you want and need from a villa on the coast. The property is 2250 square metres in total. Its five-door garage can park just as many cars, and the parcel in total can house seven more. The pool goes hand in hand with the rest of the property and the garden will serve as your touch of greenery for the hottest days of the year. The living part is composed of two houses: a large, 445 square metres main habitat, featuring several  reception rooms, several suits, an independent apartment, a fitness room and a wine cellar. The guest house consists of four equally beautiful suites and reception rooms.

Cap d’Antibes used to be overlooked, but with properties like this popping up — and being renovated — in the area, it becomes harder and harder to just ignore the siren’s chant. The prime location comes from the imagination of (name of the architect / additional info = email jacques@magret.com). The ground parcel features a traditional French garden, two pools, 900 square metres of living area and several terraces that all face the Mediterranean Sea. Included, is an independent caretaker’s house, a massage room, a gym, a wine cellar and a jacuzzi.

Rare are those properties that are both so big and so central! This noteworthy, two-level property is located within metres of the village’s city hall — it’s hard to get more “downtown” than this, even in a small village! Other perks include a library, a master suite and three other ones, all located on ground level. The place is also fully equipped with all of the modern appliances a property of this standing would need. Surface-wise, the living spaces add up to just around 500 square meters, while the recently renovated landscape garden occupies around 8 200 square meters of land. Probably enough to have some fun during the summer…
