This article describes real estate in Antibes, its types, particular features and price categories, and points out the advantages of purchase and lease of residential property through Cofrance
The French Riviera has historically developed as a resort for august personalities, aristocracy and noblemen. This tradition has been preserved up to this day. While Cannes, Nice or Saint-Tropez can be visited by anyone, there are some small towns on the seacoast nearby, where recreation is not generally affordable. They are not widely known and have their own residence regulations established throughout decades. Property and services are of the elite and premium categories and agree with the high status of the guests.
Cofrance assists Russian nationals in purchasing or leasing residential property in the elite resorts of Beaulieu-sur-Mer, Juan-les-Pins, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, and Antibes. Real estate here is the most sought-after property on the French Riviera.
Antibes: Landmarks, Property and Residents
Antibes, a small town with a population of about three thousand, lies between Cannes (some 20 minute drive) and Nice (about half an hour). It is known for the largest and most comfortable marina capable of accommodating big-size yachts. It ranks the second on the French Riviera in terms of investment, and the demand for residential property in the town is continuously growing.
The town is densely built-up, no new construction is undertaken, and the market is represented by secondary housing of the elite class. The main real estate units in Antibes offered for lease/sale include:
- Villas dated the late 19th – 20th centuries;
- Houses built in the classical or modern style;
- Flats and apartments in closed residencies with concierges.
Antibes is resided by those, who prefer a calm and homelike atmosphere conducive to recreation and remoteness from crowded Nice and Cannes with their rich cultural life still accessible.
What do the real estate prices depend on?
Residence categories correlate with town districts, remoteness from the sea, and a view. The most expensive villas in Antibes are by the seaside, the most expensive flats overlook the sea, and the most expensive penthouses have terraces.
The prices of houses remote from the sea and located in closed secured areas start from €430,000, and those of villas – from €1.0–1.5 mln. Small villas in a prestigious district with no sea view cost from €8–10 mln, while those in a prestigious location overlooking the sea range from €14 mln and villas on the first line are €15 mln upwards.
Prices of flats in the Old Town of Antibes remote from the bay range from €4,500 per m2 (upper floors) and those of terraced penthouses – from €5,500 per m2. Apartments overlooking the sea cost €7,000 per m2 upwards. Flats in houses by the seaside are considerably more expensive.
