From the glitz of Monaco to the picturesque towns of Grasse, Valbonne, and Vence, the Alpes-Maritimes offers a diverse landscape that extends to the almost white mountains. Whether you're looking to buy a French chateau or explore French Riviera properties, this region has something for everyone.
Busy summer beaches give way to tranquil coastlines in the spring and autumn. For winter enthusiasts, skiing in Auron is just over an hour from the coast, making it a perfect destination for those interested in French country estates that offer both beach and mountain access.
Nice, home to the famous Flower Market, offers a variety of quality restaurants in the Old Town. The Promenade des Anglais is another must-see, stretching the entire length of the front. The local Salade Nicoise, often accompanied by a local rosé, is a culinary delight—just beware of tourist trap restaurants.
The region's hilly terrain has led to a focus on olive oil production, except in Grasse, which is world-renowned for its perfume factories and free museums. Biot is a hub for glass blowing, and Cannes is famous for its luxury shops, particularly on Rue d’Antibes.
The Sentier Littoral is a coastal walk that offers some of the best views of the Mediterranean Sea, beaches, and coves. Whether you're interested in French vineyard properties or simply want to enjoy the natural beauty, this walk is a must.
