Buying a Home in Nice, France: Top Neighborhoods and the Most Beautiful Properties for Sale

With a population of more than 300,000, Nice has 30 residential neighborhoods. But only six of them are considered good places to buy (or rent, for starters) a vacation home.

Old Town (Vieux Nice), with its colorful flower market, charming olden-day architecture (from the 16th century to the Belle 脡poque period) features many trendy restaurants and bars. In the old town, a buyer can find renovated sea view apartments as well as residential buildings on one of the quieter backstreets.

Cimiez, just east of the old town, is considered one of the most fashionable and fancy neighborhoods in Nice. It enjoys fantastic views over the city, a certain French Riviera vibe, many architectural landmarks (such as Excelsior Regina Palace), museums and art galleries. The area boasts elegant chateaus that serve as residential buildings, townhouses, and semi-detached villas.

Mont Boron, situated east of Cimiez, is the best neighborhood to buy a stunning mansion, Belle 脡poque villa, or even an ancient palace. Settled on a hill, the area offers panoramic views over the port of Nice, the Baie des Anges and, from some vantage points, the bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer. The hill is covered with the vegetation of the extensive, 57 Ha Park du Mont Boron. Buyers also will appreciate the easy access to Villefranche-sur-Mer, Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, and Monaco.

Cap de Nice is located between the port, the Mediterranean Sea, and Mont Boron. This small, prestigious neighborhood is near the famous Coco Beach and restaurant La Reserve and features a picturesque coastal path with a couple of scenic overlooks.

Cap de Nice is well-known for its beautiful villas and waterfront homes nestled on cliffs, surrounded by pines. But its primary gem of real estate is the legendary Palais Maeterlinck, a historic chateau, previously owned by Maurice Maeterlinck and now transformed into 19 state-of-the-art residences.

Moving west, we discover two more fashionable neighborhoods: the Promenade des Anglais and Fabron.

The Promenade des Anglais stretches along the entire bay, providing ample space for a relaxing stroll or cycle ride between the many beaches and residential buildings facing the sea. Trendy bars, the hustle-and-bustle of beachfront living, and numerous beach activities for all ages make the area an excellent spot to live for every lover of Nice.

The Fabron neighborhood is another lovely, forested hill where you will find upscale French-style cottages, villas, and beach houses. With its golf park, international schools, and the Promenade des Anglais for just around the corner for evening strolls, it鈥檚 a perfect place for families or retirees to purchase a holiday home or vocational rental.

Homes Around Nice: Best Property for Sale from Coastal Houses to Country Chateaus

If you are searching for an opportunity to spend several months per year in Nice but live a calmer, out-of-town lifestyle, you should take a look at Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. It is located approximately 10 km from Nice and was included in the Nice metropolitan area until 2015.

Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat has a long history (beginning in the 1900s) of hosting the ultra-wealthy during their summer voyages. The area boasts Villa La Leopolda, one of the world鈥檚 most expensive villas, and the famous villas Ephrussi de Rothschild and Santo Sospir.

Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is one of the best places in the French Riviera to purchase the home of your dreams. In this area, a buyer can find luxurious houses for sale with pools and gardens. Properties mostly feature elegant exteriors and stylish, custom interior designs. But it鈥檚 also possible to purchase smaller, 3-bedroom apartments with a water view for around US$1 million.

Less expensive but beautiful communes are located higher in the mountains near Nice, such as Saint-Paul-de-Vence or La Colle-sur-Loup. Luxury real estate available for sale in these areas includes Provence-style properties, medieval stone-built country estates, farmhouses, and other charming homes typical of the French countryside.
