French Riviera Property Search Newsletter
Summer 2012

Firstly Wishing a Happy Independence Day to our American Friends..


Why are you getting this Newsletter? We know that you may not be seeking to buy or rent in this beautiful area right now, but maybe friends, colleagues or family members will be looking and you will remember us and how helpful it will be for them to have reliable, honourable assistance and guidance. Thank you for your trust.

Summer is here and musical activities abound throughout the coast. Music of all kinds – jazz, rock, classical, opera and many more styles. From the casual Nice Jazz Festival to the rarefied atmosphere of the classical concerts in the courtyard of the Prince’s Palace in Monaco. From the beautiful musical accompaniments to the Firework Festival in Cannes to the Monte-Carlo festival summer concerts featuring world-class popular artists. From chamber music and picnicking in a beautiful old chapel in an olive grove, to concerts in the courtyard of the magnificent cathedral in Menton overlooking the moonlit sea.

My opera-loving husband is torn between 3 outdoor productions of Mozart’s "Marriage of Figaro” this season – the Archbishop’s Palace in Aix-en-Provence? The glorious villa Eilenroc in Cap d’Antibes? The lovely square in the village of Gattieres? What a dilemma! Personally I like to see and hear some of my heartthrobs singing with the Mediterranean Sea in the background – this year it will be Tom Jones and Roberto Alagna for me.

Remember, the weather means that virtually every one of these summer concerts will be open air.

Many of our new clients arrive with us courtesy of a recommendation from a previous client, a colleague and of course family and friends. You can see a selection of our testimonials on our website.


In order to complete your house purchase here on the French Riviera, it is essential to show proof of your insurance cover when you sign the final contract. For those purchasing an apartment, although not essential, it is of course desirable and for clients wishing to rent out their new purchase, they must have special rental insurance which covers all areas including garages and pools.
We obtain 2 quotations for insurance - net, with no commission to us, as part of our services to our buyers. Having worked with Generali for several years we have found their services to be excellent, their prices fair and of course they offer all documentation in English so there are no surprises.
