Alice Watson-Smith from Fine & Country Cannes explains why she thinks the South of France is the best place to move to.
In Cannes, it’s all about the lifestyle. Everything is so easy, with a relaxed pace of life. We have lovely markets, pavement cafes, and of course the magnificent views. Here, the locals take the time to really enjoy their leisure time. The South of France is one of the most welcoming parts of France as it is so cosmopolitan.
The most popular areas to live are in the Côte d'Azur, which has over 300 days of sunshine per year. The hottest days are in August, which is also the peak season for visitors. Even in January the weather is still good and there are a lot less people around, making it a very relaxing place to be. It’s never cold and damp here, and I find that winter can be the best kept secret. February is the wettest month, so be aware of that if you are planning a holiday. My favourite months to be in Cannes are in September and June, when the weather is beautiful and the streets are less busy.
There are lots of beautifully fresh dining options in Cannes. We have French quality cuisine including great seafood, as well as Italian influences that travel the short distance across the boarder.
The popularity of the Côte d'Azur means it’s a secure location to invest in property. For €180,000, you could own a studio apartment. Property prices can range up to €3,000,000 for beautiful villas. We find that the most popular homes cost between €300,000 and €400,000, as these are achievable prices for holiday homes and investment properties.
If you are thinking of moving to Cannes, I recommend doing your research on the area and knowing exactly what type of property you want. With no visa requirements to move here, it’s a fantastic opportunity to change your pace of life.
