Overview of the areas of Nice - The key investment areas.
As you can see by the map above, the areas of Nice that attract the largest equity growth are the areas populated by holiday makers and tourists. This drives Nice's economy and being close to the beach and the Old Town is crucial.
The other crucially important issue which surprisingly many people forget about during the excitement of buying is that you must get a trustworthy, English speaking notaire (property lawyer). Many agents will press you to their favorite Notaire, claiming that they speak English - it's only when there is a problem that you find you can't communicate. A good notaire could spare you many sleepless nights. For a list of Quality Notairs contact Dennis Broadfield at email@example.com.
Overview of the areas of Nice
Nice, the fifth largest city in France is both the administrative centre of the Alpes-Maritime department and the gateway to the Riviera because of its international airport.
Nice has been a magnet to well-healed tourists for nearly 200 years for a multitude of reasons, including its weather, outstanding geography, beautiful provence hill villages and it's laidback lifestyle.
Renowned for its grace, Nice has in more recent times become a hub for research and development in the computer and science industries with the creation of science and technology parks at Sophia Antipolis.
Nice's is a large enough city not to be effected by the seasonal downturn of other towns on the Riviera. Even in the winter the cafe terraces are filled with people happily drinking and eating, watching the world go by and contemplating the beauty and ever changing environment.
One of Nices largests attractions and the most visited site in the city is the famous flower and food market on the Cours Saleya in the Old Town right near the beach. From here there are wonderful walks along the sea to the Port area and in the other direction following the beach footpath you walk past luxury hotels like the Negresco and Palais de Mediterranee and Nice's more elegant beach clubs like the Beau Rivage.
Nice is also a city of art and culture. After Paris, it has the most museums in France. The city is animated at night as well as in the day. This is seen in the summer with the Nice Jazz Festival held in the gardens of bourgeois Cimiez, and the flower "war" on the Promenade des Anglais in which participates pick the prettiest women on the Cote d'Azur.
Each day on the Cours Saleya in the venerable Old Town, there is the great flower market where one can also find fruit and vegetables, organic goods and local produce. The redevelopment of the Malaussena quarter north of the train station is attracting buyers from around Europe, while our villas and farmhouses in the Nice countryside are always popular.
