Why the French Riviera is the place to live right now!

From beautiful architectural buildings to incredible food and drink, France is one of the best places to live right now and, according to surveys, the French Riviera is one of the greatest coasts to live in the heart of Europe.

The French Riviera is popular with expatriates and visitors, which is not surprising due to the 300 days of sunshine to enjoy every year and also the fact that you are at 1 hour drive from Italy ski resorts. You can enjoy different activities such as swimming for lunch, or  savor a nice meal, because this area is famous for its culinary prowess. Due to the fact that there are many expats living in the area, the French Riviera is  85% an English speaking area, so if you don’t know French yet, it’s not a problem.
