Need a child-friendly Riviera property that is minutes from the beach? Here are five hand-picked suggestions from the Home Hunts team…
With more than 100 kilometres of coastlines and beaches, the French Riviera is one of the most popular locations in France welcoming more than 10 million visitors each year. It also hosts more than 50% of the world’s superyacht fleet, sea lovers keen to exclusively explore the area’s clear, mottled-blue waters, beautiful bays and breath-taking islands, such as the Îles de Lérins and the Île de Porquerolles.
While even the most popular beaches on the Côte d’Azur’s are uncrowded during the warm spring weather, the summer season is a little busier. Living in a property near the beach can help you avoid the traffic and means you can get there quickly and easily. Here is a selection of family homes that are close to some of the best beaches on the Côte d’Azur.
