French Coastal Properties – Southern France: Pricing Examples
The Southern coast, including the regions of Languedoc Roussillon and
Provence has numerous coastal resorts and towns offering a wide range of properties and prices, many of which will compare well with the
Northern and Western coasts although there are certainly some properties at higher prices than can be found anywhere else in France – but the vendors normally don’t allow them to be publicised!
The Mediterranean is quite different again in many ways including the slower pace of life to a certain extent but on the other hand you have many very busy and built up resorts. It really does depend on personal taste as to where you will choose. At the top end of the market is a front-line property on Cap d’Antibes which has recently been refurbished, priced at 27,000.000 €. At the other end of the scale is a neat little detached property with terrace within 200m of beaches priced at 99,000€ in Herault.
Starting from 280,000€ are new apartments opposite the beach in Antibes les Pins. The development also offers a pool and landscaped gardens and is walking distance to the lively resort of Juan les Pins.
In Nice a 3 bedroom apartment with balconies is within 500m of the beaches is priced at 295.000€. It includes underground parking and is a ideal home for permanent living or holidays as well as being a good investment.
However on the renowned Promenade des Anglais in Nice an entirely renovated double aspect 2 bedroom apartment, with terrace overlooking the sea is priced at 485,000€
In the popular and very French resort of Cap d’Agde a recently built single story 3 bedroom villa with quarter of an acre is situated 300m from the beach and is priced at 495,000€
In Gard there is a selection of newly built houses around a marina with their own moorings at the end of their small gardens. There is direct access out to sea and into the canal system. Properties range in price from around 175,000€ up to over 540,000€.
The Mediterranean area offers many apartments which are front line onto the sea and a fewer number of private villas which are at a premium.
Sea views and even more so, direct access to the beach can double the price of a property, but it is something worth paying for as properties are limited.
So if you are looking for a property by the coast then France has it all to offer, whether you are looking for the quieter wide sandy beaches of Pas de Calais and Normandy, perhaps the more dramatic beaches of Brittany, the varied resorts of the Western coastline and the Atlantic or the very pretty coastline and choice of beaches and resorts on the Mediterranean.
