The French Riviera’s high-end real estate market is very active, with many foreign investors purchasing premier villas in the affluent locations of Cap-Ferrat, Cap d’Antibes, Cannes or Saint-Tropez. This is because luxury real estate remains a safe bet in this region with its multitude of irrefutable advantages, including the fact that it has the second-largest international airport in the country.

And when not in the French Riviera, earning income from your property through rentals is painless when assisted by Magrey & Sons.
