Medieval splendor in the French Riviera of Mougins

The French Riviera has always been a place of interest for foreign buyers. The sought-after medieval village of Mougins is just 15 minutes away from Cannes on the Côte d'Azur. In his latter years Picasso has had a house in Mougins, so it is not surprising that it is famous for its galleries where works by Picasso, Matisse, Rodin or Damien Hirst and more can be found. Another attraction is its restaurants with Michelin stars. The international gastronomy festival Les Étoiles de Mougins also takes place in June every year. The Mougins Hills overlook Cannes Bay, which offers hunters an additional attraction. For those who are looking for a top-class choice in the region, the Mougins School offers a British curriculum adapted for the international community. apartment in qatar

Whilst it is true that the area was a magnet for the wealthy and well-known - past and present - property can be found at reasonable prices.

For example, the construction of Coeur Mougins is advertising apartments from €180,000. The Mayor of Mougins has given the development permission to bring in new residents in the long term.

The residences range from studios to three bedrooms and villas. The apartments have access to a private pool, state-of-the-art shopping mall, movie theatre, and more. The project offers a magnificent view of the mountains and coast. The high-end project is scheduled for completion in 2022. According to INSEE results, the average property values in the area increase by approximately 2-3 percent year-on-year.

Ski Centers

In France, it is always wise to search transport options if you are looking for a house. For buyers of ski resorts, the proximity to an airport with budget flights means you are unable to fly much and get to the pistes as soon as possible. Even though France has proposed a new eco-tax airline, only between € 1,50 and € 18 will be added to each flight, experts do not think travel demand will significantly impact it. It is also important to be close to an airport or a transport hub if you are looking to rent your property for revenue.

One way is to find property near Geneva Airport, which handles nearly 18 million passengers annually. It provides low-cost flights to a broad spectrum of Europe – Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Kosovo, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the United Kingdom. In Britain low-cost flights from 21 regional airports around the country are currently available.

There is an ample selection of ski resorts within easy access of Geneva Airport, as well as experts on ski resorts and Halo Financial Associate, Erna Low, says in her 2019-20 property study on the French Alps that nearby Samoëns has one of the most beautiful villagers in the Alps. "Your life will be revolutionized by a second home in the Alps. But only if you use it often.

Ski vacations, summer holidays, holiday breaks: you must pack as many as you can in your year – and to do so you should choose a place near the airport, Geneva is the obvious option. Geneva is a place of choice. The Swiss hub not only serves flights from each corner of the United Kingdom, but also from all six London airports. It can also be directly reached from Dubai, New York and Moscow."

So if you are an enthusiastic skier or just want to relax with a nice view, French ski resorts are among the best places to purchase an apartment in Europe.
