We focus on the finest areas along the coast: Cap Ferrat, Beaulieu, the strip between Nice and the Italian border. The property they offer is unrivalled. People move down because of the climate, but find that we have it all – inspiring culture, great schools, the beach, glorious mountains and, of course, amazing restaurants.
One of my favourite places to eat is La Môme in Cannes, which has a terrific atmosphere – there’s a beach branch on the Croisette. Le Galet has the freshest fish in Nice, and Club Dauphin at the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat serves the best lobster sandwich ever.
We have world-famous cultural and sporting fixtures here – the Cannes Film Festival, the Monte-Carlo Masters and the Monaco Grand Prix – but there are lots of less well-known events. We have so many concerts and exhibitions, Antibes has a charming old town, and you can go into the hinterland for hiking, cycling and climbing. Plus you can kitesurf and paddleboard along the coast.
Many people who come here from London, Paris or New York say they’re overwhelmed by how busy those cities have become. It puts into perspective what is important for people nowadays: to be in nature – though they also need a place to work.
