Drawing back the curtains in the bedroom of your seaview villa to reveal shards of sunlight dancing on the water below must be one of the most heavenly ways to wake up in your France property.
For many people on the Cote d’Azur, such an awakening is an every day affair. Whether gazing at a regatta of sailing boats gliding across the bay on a summer’s day or marveling at the blueness of the sea against a backdrop of snow-capped mountains on a winter’s morning, little else can compare.
And this is exactly why buyers seeking their perfect property for sale South of France come here. There are few places on earth which offer house-hunters the such quality and variety of seaview property for sale.
There are simply thousands of seaview villas along the French Riviera which enjoy second to none vistas over the region’s spectacular coast line, from the white sandy beaches of a Saint Tropez property in the south, to the rugged shores of a Menton property in the north.
No canvass is ever the same. Seaview houses perched high on the hillside overlooking Villefranche-sur-Mer, for example, enjoy second-to-none views of the stunning St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat peninsula, rich in lush, green vegetation and imperial buildings and the sparkling deep water bay in-between. The bay, situated between the Cape of Nice and Cap Ferrat is one of the deepest natural harbours in the Mediterranean and is the first and only port of call for many of the larger cruise ships.
Likewise seaview property for sale South of France in the city of Nice looks out over the magnificent Baie des Anges, which extends to the horizon, uninterrupted except for the odd sailing boat, or distant ferry taking passengers to Corsica.
Seaview houses in Vence, however, get a completely different perspective than properties nearer the coast as they benefit from a sweeping panoramic view which stretches from Nice to the Cap d’Antibes.
Meanwhile, a France property built on the rocky spur near Tourrettes-sur-Loup, some 12kms away from the coast, enjoys an even richer vista of the French Riviera over acres upon acres of pine forest, olive groves and gently undulating fields of lavender until it reaches the ocean.
Before buying your dream seaview real estate it is essential to work out what seaview you are after, whether it be a view over the Lerins islands, in the Bay of Cannes, or of a picturesque fishing village from a Saint Tropez property. The coastline of the French Riviera has a canvas to suit every taste.
