Choosing a home in the sun
What makes your perfect holiday home is something you need to tell us in more detail, but in general you are buying comfort and lifestyle. You might still want to rent it out to discerning renters to cover costs, it may still need to be a solid investment you can sell at a profit, but at the end of the day it has to be a place you feel comfortable. A place you feel at home and that you want to come back to time and time again. We will listen to what you want. We do not go outside of your criteria or budget. We recognise your time is valuable. Find the perfect holiday home.
Finding the perfect investment
There are plenty of fantastic buy-to-let apartments in Nice but it is a different market. Distance to the beach is more important than size. Poor communal areas or lack of a lift will help reduce the price but may not affect rentability. We will guide you through what makes a good investment property. Good properties often go within a couple of days, and often sell before they hit any web site. We are better connected than any other estate agency and can get you the hottest deals. Read our investment guide.
