The South of France, and more notably the French Riviera, has become one of the prime spots for a second home and luxury property investment.

Many visit this famous European coastline during the spring and summer months, kicking off with the Cannes Film Festival and the F1 Monaco Grand Prix. During these events, many will decide to stay in some of the world’s most famed hotels in Cannes, including the Martinez, whilst others will reside in their apartments looking over the port of Fontvielle in Monaco, and the rest will relax by the pool of their grand and luxurious villa. The question is, how do you decide between a luxury modern villa in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, one of the most sought after areas on the French Riviera for a luxury property, and a traditional, character property, perched on the well-famed Cap d’Antibes?

Modern or Traditional?

Each style has their charms but for those looking to invest in a luxury property on the French Riviera, choosing between a modern or traditional property can be difficult. New and abstract estates are continuously being constructed along the Cote d’Azur, built with the greenest facilities and finest luxury amenities. However, traditional and character properties in the South of France have a very cosy Provencal charm, which is difficult to find anywhere else.

Modern and luxurious villas, are built with style and technology in mind. They are completely fitted with the most up-to-date equipment and furnishings. The importance of lighting in these modern estates tends to be a lot greater as well. Many are built with high ceilings and tall windows, which enable natural light to enter for longer periods of the day.

All along the Cote d’Azur and the South of France, you will find beautiful Bastides and grand Chateaus. Usually built in old stone with red clay tiled roofs, cultural and picturesque villas surrounded by olive groves yield a relaxing atmosphere. For those who enjoy the ‘French way of life’, investing in a Provencal villa is the perfect choice. If you would like it modernised, why not decide on renovating? If renovation is out of the option, Cap d’Antibes has a selection of beautiful and exclusive luxury villas built in the ‘Belle Époque’ style. Even though these villas were built hundreds of years ago, they continue to compliment a modern lifestyle.
