The French Riviera is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after destinations in the world when it comes to holidays that are all about the art of living, luxury and glamour. Staying here means discovering and rediscovering a succession of cities, villages, ports and natural sites of unparalleled splendour. From Nice to Roquebrune-Cap-Martin and Monaco, via Villefranche-sur-Mer, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Beaulieu-sur-Mer, Eze and Cap-d’Ail, the French Riviera is synonymous with excellence, even in summer idleness!
Since its “discovery” at the end of the 19th century by the British aristocracy, seduced by the mildness of its climate and the depth of its light in all seasons, the French Riviera has put forward its unique personality, based on a double blue, that of the Mediterranean and that of the sky, with the Alps in the background. The offer of top-of-the-range rentals is sure to satisfy the most demanding clients, with the sea view and its proximity to the sea being a priority criterion, of course.
There is one sector that manages to raise the prestige of these outstanding destinations even further, the “Golden Triangle”, bounded by Villefranche, Beaulieu and Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. The magic of the Côte d’Azur comes largely from the majesty and unparalleled elegance of its legendary capes, whose properties are among the most sought-after on the Mediterranean coast. Seasonal or long-term rentals are a sure thing, and are confirmed year after year. The solidity of this market was once again confirmed in 2020, when travel restrictions led wealthy customers to rethink summer holidays to bring them closer to home without sacrificing anything in terms of quality. On the other hand, these particularly demanding requirements call for real specialists in the specificities of each sector on the French Riviera.
For more than 25 years, Hausmann Real Estate has been considered as a reference in terms of prestigious rentals on the French Riviera. Its reputation is such that many clients make exclusive use of its services and know-how in a wide range of areas, including the Var coastline and the Saint-Tropez peninsula. Hausmann Real Estate’s multilingual team speaks, in addition to French and English, Italian, Russian, Dutch, German and Armenian. For Hausmann Real Estate, it’s more than just a question of language: it’s about understanding the subtleties of each culture. Whether it’s for a few weeks or several years, when considering a prestigious property rental, clients need to know that they are unique, because their project is not duplicable with another. The same is true with owners, who must feel confident and know that the keys to their property are only entrusted to a hand-picked clientele that shares their values.
Indeed, those who are used to luxury expect the best in all areas, from gastronomy to culture, from cars to yachting, from fashion to jewellery. With personalised and tailor-made services at all times. It goes without saying that prestige rentals must live up to the highest standards – this has been Hausmann Real Estate’s credo since its inception. In the choice of the villa to be rented and its services, the selection of the services offered and the needs concerning the household staff, the Hausmann Real Estate team has demonstrated over the years the seriousness and the follow-up of its support.
It is no coincidence that the agency is located in Beaulieu-sur-Mer, at the gateway to Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, in the beating heart of French Riviera’s excellence. Between Monaco and Nice-Côte d’Azur international airport, Cap Ferrat is indeed famous for its 600 villas and luxury properties of unique prestige, those dating from the Belle Epoque being probably the most desirable. But the strength of the French Riviera is that it offers something for every taste and choice, from a Provençal-style residence to a contemporary villa with a panoramic swimming pool. The fame of its beaches, capes, palaces, restaurants and luxury boutiques attracts a new international clientele every season, looking for a prestigious rental. The perfect knowledge of each site allows Hausmann Real Estate and its collaborators to bring its clients to ports or villages that may be more intimate or even unknown. Such as Eze and its heights or Cap-d’Ail and its splendid rocky coasts which have remained wild.
For nearly three decades, the Haussmann Real Estate team has been observing that
