After Elton John welcomed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex into his Nice summer home, we see which properties are currently on offer in the celebrity playground. Don't worry, these ones don't come with a £15 million price tag!

Nice is usually thought of as more of a high-end holiday destination rather than somewhere to purchase a property, with a beautiful and undeniably pricey coastline. However, the city is well worth considering as a base for your property search, says Patrick Joseph of "We have a very good choice of properties in and around the Nice area to cater for different budgets", says Patrick, "and one of the great benefits of Nice is that it's very well connected, thanks to the international airport and proximity to ski slopes, Italy and Monaco".

When it comes to celebrity neighbours, Patrick says: "Elton John has owned a house there for many years, the Rolling Stones lived there in exile for a while too, and many others including royalty, even".

"We get enquiries from clients from all over the world, usually looking for an 'Airbnb-able' property for their own use and providing income. Overall, Nice is a charming and timeless place, offering everything that represents stylish Mediterranean living."

Here's a taste of some of the properties currently on offer in the aptly nicknamed 'Nice la Belle'.
