Best Property for Sale in Provence in 2017

A selection of ten of the best properties on the market in Provence ( PACA ) in 2017

A house in Provence

Owning a house in Provence (the French region of Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur, or PACA) is the ultimate dream of many British house hunters. PACA was beloved of British royals and the super rich as long ago as the 18th century. And it just went from strength to strength with the patronage of film stars and the jet set after the end of World War II (Coastal Provence - Land of the Rich and Famous). Next came Peter Mayle, whose book, "A Year in Provence" persuaded hundreds to head for the Luberon in search of a lavender-scented Provencal idyll. They found the idyll, but as a result, property prices pushed higher and higher.

Property in Provence can be affordable

Property seekers with less wealth began to avoid Provence (Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Property Guide), thinking that property there would be out of reach. It is still the most expensive region outside Paris, but aside from the fabulous millionaire's mansions (of which there are plenty!) there are places where affordable property can be found. You just need to know where to look. We've found some great affordable properties which we have listed below. The recent economic situation certainly has hidden benefits for property seekers!

Perfect Provence

The region is arguably the most blessed in all of France. It's got a fabulous Mediterranean climate and coastline, a mouth-watering gastronomy and is impossibly picturesque. Imagine waking up to views of olive groves and lavender fields every morning! Or, living beside the glorious Parc du Verdon, near the famous gorges!

Why not look at the glamorous city of Nice?

Nice is the region's undisputed capital city. Cosmopolitan, oozing wealth and glamour, Nice is the archetypal Rivera town. The harbour is packed with the gigantic and luxurious yachts of the super rich, and the upmarket restaurants line the quayside. The Mediterranean Sea sparkles a brilliant blue in the almost constant sunshine. Nice really is a stylish piece of heaven on earth.

Property for sale in Nice

You'd imagine property in the best areas of Nice would be sky high in price, and some of it surely is. But there are some great bargains to be found if you keep your eye on the market. We can help.

Luxury properties for sale in Provence

If you have a higher budget, Provence really is the region to find something special. We have four properties around the million mark and above listed here.

PACA property - who buys here?

Provence appeals to anyone who appreciates the finer things in life. In this region of southern France this means a near perfect climate (The Winds of France), fine food and wine, beautiful land and seascapes and a stylish and comfortable lifestyle close to excellent amenities. Provence has a strong cultural identity too, with many festivals and traditions to enjoy.

Holidays in Provence - lots to keep you busy

When it comes to activities and sports the region is second to none. The coast offers superb sailing and power boat sports among others, and Provence boasts more than 50 golf courses. Inland there is great walking, horse-riding and a catalogue of adventure sports, while even skiing is possible as you climb into the mountainous areas of the region. With twelve ski resorts there's plenty of choice for snow sports fans.
