Purchasing a seafront property on the French Riviera is the best thing you can do if you care about a happy lifestyle and your health. A waterfront property is one of the most wanted properties in the South of France, and there is a good reason for it. In fact, there are ten good reasons why you should try to buy waterfront property.

A seafront property on the French Riviera is forever a High-Value property

Buying a seafront or waterfront property in the South of France will cost you more than the same villa five or ten minutes inland. But waterfront villas on the Cote d’Azur are the kind of properties that will keep their value, no matter how the global economy goes. Buying a waterfront villa in the South of France is an absolute valuable asset in your real estate portfolio.

Great rental profit

When you are the happy owner of a luxury waterfront property along the sunny Côte d’Azur, you might use it as a second home. You could be there for a few holidays per year, living in the best location there is. Endless sea views, the silence and the privilege of being part of the French Riviera lifestyle. Of course, this is what most people envy: to feel how it is like to live on the seafront in the South of France. That’s why renting out your property will give you a nice extra income boost. With that extra income, you could quickly pay the property fees, your gardener and your cleaners for the whole year. Just a thought; maybe you prefer to keep the property for you and your family alone.

The best sleep ever in a seafront property

People have their best sleep when they listen to the hypnotizing sounds of the ocean. Or in this case, the Mediterranean Sea. It’s like the breath of Earth, the non-stop flowing energy of the tides. You will notice that your sleep will be more regular and complete. Dr Natasha Bijlani, a psychiatrist from London’s Priory’s Roehampton Hospital, told Metro: “Sea air is good for sleep because it’s generally cleaner and fresher, with higher levels of oxygen, which can improve sleep.” Negative ions in sea air accelerate your ability to absorb oxygen and also help balance your serotonin levels, one of the body’s happiness hormones.

Ten advantages of purchasing a seafront property on the French Riviera

A healthy dose of vitamins and minerals

The sea has always been a natural source of healing. Thalassotherapy and Hydrotherapy treat diseases of the body and mind. But a daily dose of the sea is absolutely the key to a healthy life. The magnesium in the seawater reduces stress, relaxes your muscles and will give you a state of calmness. Now you understand why most people like to go to the sea: it gives them a good feeling.

If you were living in a seafront property on the French Riviera, or when you visit the Med, there are more natural gifts to enjoy. Sea air and mist are full of negatively charged hydrogen ions: powerful anti-oxidants. And when you dive into the sea, you will encounter iodine. This iodine treatment supports your immune system and boosts your thyroid activity. The thyroid plays a significant role in the metabolism, growth and development of the human body. Wow! All this happens to your body when you swim in the sea.

Zen attitude

Knowing that you are living in front of a healthy source of positive energy, you will feel Very Zen in a waterfront property. Next time you are visiting the South of France, have a walk near waterfront properties at coastal villages like Menton, Cap Ferrat, Villefranche sur Mer, Cap d’Antibes, Sainte Maxime or Saint Tropez. More information about the best French Riviera seaside villages can be found on our website.

If you walk around the seafront, you will notice that local people living in a seafront property are very relaxed with a big smile on their face. Their secret? They invested in a property that will always keep its value, but what’s more important, it brings them and their family lots of health and therefore, happiness.

Invitation to a sporty lifestyle

With some much beneficial influence from the sea, you will start to feel extra sportive in a seafront property on the French Riviera. If your waterfront property comes with a boat garage, you could take a little boat out and sail along the sea. Or go surfing or take kiteboard lessons. There are many watersports to do, and it adds up to your healthy and robust esteem.

Powering up the whole year

Even when you are not living on the Côte d’Azur the whole year long, the holidays that you can spend in your waterfront property will give you enough positive energy to last the rest of the year. People at work will look at your tanned face, your confident smile and will ask ‘what is your secret?’

Inspiring views

Maybe a waterfront property is the ultimate smart choice to make in life. The ocean has inspired many famous and rich people. ‘The sea stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy’ said Robert Wyland. If you are a business entrepreneur, by merely staring at the sea, your challenges will become easier to understand. And with understanding, a solution is never far away.

Social empowerment

If you like to be with friends, buying a waterfront property is the best gift you can give them. Enjoy the long lunches and dining parties together, with the seafront on the horizon. Just make sure you have enough rooms in your seafront property on the French Riviera.

Great gift for your children

Last but not least, while you are enjoying the luxury of a French Riviera luxury property, there will be a time in your life, you start thinking about the afterlife. When you know that the family waterfront property has given you so much joy, health and pleasure, it will be a great gift to pass along to the next generation. Have your notary draft up a deed that embeds your children as beneficiary.

You can also put the property directly in an SCI; a French legal structure that holds the property with you and your children as a shareholder. Ask us to bring you in contact with an expert. But first, look around to discover the best luxury properties on the French Riviera!
