The Best Time to Purchase a Villa on the Cote d’Azur
There is actually an ideal time to conduct your property search and buy your villa on the French Riviera
– the spring or the autumn months. These times of the year fall outside of the hectic summer season and the extremely quiet winter months. In the spring and autumn, houses tend not to be as often in use by owners or rented. So, this will give purchasers the opportunity to more fully view and consider the villas that they are interested in purchasing.

Payment Options Available for Purchasing Your Villa
Cap Villas – A Carte Professionelle Estate Agency
Cap Villas possesses a Carte Professionnelle – a legal requirement in France for companies that sell properties within French borders. At Cap Villas, we work directly in collaboration with a local French real estate agency that has direct access to all the premier villas in the area. On purchase transactions, Cap Villas acts as the representative for the buyer and the estate agency represents the interests of the seller. Together, we split sales commissions on a 50/50 basis.
Property Audit Guidance
A crucial part of any home-buying process necessarily involves assessing the soundness of your proposed investment. At Cap Villas, we would be pleased to arrange for French property specialists – such as engineers, architects and builders – to conduct inspections and audits of properties you are considering purchasing. Audit reports of this sort form an invaluable part of your property search, helping to offer you the security that you are choosing wisely when buying a property on the French Riviera.
The Compromis de Vente
With our years of experience in the French property marketplace, the team at Cap Villas can help to guide you through the intricacies of local laws and regulations regarding property transactions.
For example, once you, as a purchaser, have agreed upon a villa price, you will be required to sign a compromis de vente, a legally binding document. The next step would then be for you to pay a deposit to the seller’s notaire, or legal representative in the sales transaction.
As the buyer, you will need the services of your own notaire. At Cap Villas, we have good relationships with several excellent notaires and will be happy to supply you with introductions. Our recommendations are completely impartial and we take no fees for this advice.
In addition, if you would like, we can offer you assistance with currency transfer matters. We are in regular contact with Currencies Direct, who will be able to provide you with a currency rate quote in order to facilitate your property purchase in the South of France.
If you are in need of tax advice in regards to your property purchase transaction on the Cote D’Azur
, Cap Villas can connect you with outstanding bilingual and English accountants in Nice. They will make certain that you receive the best tax guidance available and that you are in compliance with all the relevant laws before you transfer the funds to buy your property in France.
Acte de Vente
A few months after both parties to the property sale have signed the compromis de vente, and once all the legal requirements have been satisfactorily met, you and the existing owner will be required to sign the acte de vente. You will then make the final payment, receive the keys and take possession of the property. Congratulations!
