I. The real estate market in Antibes: old Antibes, Cap d'Antibes and la dolce vita 

Real estate in Antibes is a paradise for Russian, English, American, Danish, Swedish and even Dutch foreign investors.

Antibes, the jewel of the Côte d'Azur, attracts many investors every year. Its real estate market, dense and diversified, reflects a rich history and a varied geography, between sea and mountains.

1. An attractive but competitive market

The desire to acquire a property in Antibes is not uncommon. The city, with its fine sandy beaches, its historical heritage and its proximity to economic hubs like Nice and Monaco, offers an idyllic living environment. But this attractiveness generates strong competition, causing prices to fluctuate and making transactions more complex.

2. Constantly evolving regulations

As in any popular city, Antibes sees its real estate regulations evolve frequently, whether in terms of town planning, heritage protection or taxation. This constant evolution requires constant vigilance. Between VEFA, old buildings, CCMI, co-ownership, real estate in Antibes allows you to obtain a second home in an ideal sunny setting.
