Buy a property in Nice and brush shoulders with the likes of Elton John, Bill Gates and Bono
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 My-French-House.com. "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'.
This stunning one-bedroom, second-floor flat is located right on the promenade, with an incredible sea view. The apartment has a luxury contemporary finish, and even comes fully furnished.
With excellent proximity to amenities and transport, this immaculate two-bedroom apartment has beautiful parquet floors, bespoke fitted storage, and two good sized terraces with space for entertaining.
In the heart of the old town, with beautiful views across terracotta rooftops, is this one/two-bedroom duplex penthouse apartment. At the top of a charming historic building, the property offers large living spaces and the possibility of easily partitioning off a second bedroom.
