Where to Buy in Provence
The historical region of Provence now largely translates to the modern Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. It includes the departments Var, Bouches-du-Rhône, and Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, as well as parts of Alpes-Maritimes and Vaucluse. There are many beautiful places to choose if you're looking for property in the area, but there are some in particular that we often feature in our listings. Some of the most popular locations include:
Cannes - home to the Cannes Film Festival, Cannes is popular with the rich and famous. Although it can get busy in the summer, our Cannes villas offer privacy for anyone who wants to escape the crowds.
Mougins - the commune of Mougins is surrounded by forest, making it the perfect place to buy a property if you want peace and quiet, and to be surrounded by nature.
Gassin - located close to Saint-Tropez, Gassin puts you close to the action while offering you more privacy. It's high on a hill but still close to the sea.
Cap D'Antibes - the peninsula of Cap D'Antibes might be only four miles long, but it offers the ideal hideaway for anyone looking for a luxury villa.
The Provencal Style
The Provencal style of architecture is one that you're likely to be drawn to if you're looking for a property on the French Riviera. Rather than the sleek look of many more contemporary villas, the Provencal style is more traditional. If you want colourful wooden shutters and flowers growing along the facade of your villa, a Provencal villa might be for you. The grounds surrounding your villa can also be designed in a sweet Provencal style, favouring tradition but still ensuring everything looks up to date. Although the exteriors of many of our villas look traditional, inside you can still benefit from modern design and conveniences.
Amenities and Facilities in Our Provencal Villas
The Provencal villas you will find listed on our site offer all you need in a luxury property on the French Riviera. Bedrooms can be as few as 3 or as many as 9 or 10, while the living area available could be under 200 metres squared or could be in the thousands. You will struggle to find a Provencal villa that doesn't have a swimming pool, which is ideal for any summer retreat. You'll also find modern conveniences, including fully equipped kitchens and even extras like cinema rooms to provide everything you need when you stay. [-]
