Cagnes sur Mer is the growth diamond on the Côte d’Azur; in less than ten years time, the new mayor has pursued a vigorous policy whereby more and more people come to Cagnes sur Mer. Is it the new wide boulevard where you can cycle, walk and dine by the sea all year round? Also the only horse racing track in the South of France; the Hippodrome Côte d’Azur that attracts each year more and more international visitors. Or is Cagnes becoming so popular thanks to the new and Europe’s largest outdoor shopping and entertainment center: Polygone Riviera? If you like shopping, and good food, conviviality, film, a casino and fun, Polygone Riviera has almost everything. The fact is clear: investing in Cagnes sur Mer is investing in a dynamic city with around 50,000 inhabitants and where there is plenty to do all year round.

Above all this bustle, the Chateau Grimaldi has been literally towing since 1309. Once owned by the rich Grimaldis from Monaco, now in the hands of the commune of Cagnes sur Mer that has made a museum of the castle, with modern art from around the world. Another clever move to attract more international people to Cagnes sur Mer. The castle is located in Haut de Cagnes, which is mostly inhabited by Scandinavian people. You hardly hear ‘bonjour’ here, but rather ‘Tak Tak’.

From your new apartment, you have daily views of the sturdy walls, battlements and the waving flags of the castle Grimaldi and Haut de Cagnes. You will feel here a bit in the Middle Ages, but fortunately, your apartment is completely new in accordance with the requirements of the 21st century. This new building is located in the heart of the city, close to the town hall. The residence, with its modern architecture and traditional roof tiles, has a back garden with a stylish wooded area and a pleasantly landscaped courtyard where you can enjoy. The apartments, from studios to large 4-room apartments plus a roof villa are light and functional with beautiful and large terraces to fully enjoy the view of the historic Haut de Cagnes and its castle.
