Relocating to the French Riviera

by | Jul 28, 2022

Are you thinking about moving to the French Riviera? We can only recommend you doing it, simply because it’s the most beautiful place in the world if you would ask us – but we’re not really objective here 😉

Relocating is a huge step, especially if you’re coming from another region or even country. There’s a lot of things you have to take care of and doing that all from a distance is quite a challenge.

That’s why we came up with some tips in collaboration with Esmeralda van Puijenbroek, owner of Moov Mobility Consulting – a relocation specialist for businesses and individuals.

These tips are made for people that would like to rent or buy a place on the French Riviera.

Visit the area if you can

It’s difficult to get all the correct information and full picture when you just Google “Living in Nice”. Especially in a big city, there will be some areas that are nicer or safer than others. Make sure you’re doing some proper research or are able to personally explore the region before relocating.

Where to start

Consider getting in touch with a professional, like a relocation specialist that could advise you on the region, relocation admin and get you connected with good service providers (and of course give you all the insider information on the best local spots!).

Don’t submit your personal information

When researching, be careful not to submit your personal information to public platforms or marketplaces – people are sometimes able to use your information for fraudulent activity so just be aware and where possible, seek out professional solutions.

It’s corrupt in a not so bad way, specialists have access to priority procedures

When working with a relocation specialist, you’re more likely to find a suitable place to live because Moov has connections on the French Riviera. This region in particular still does things in a very traditional way so not everything is digital and online – including real estate listings. The specialists at Moov know a lot of real estate agents and get listings for apartments and houses before it goes on the market to the public.

Also specialists and specialised companies have access to priority procedures and will get things done quicker simply because we don’t have to follow the same route as you would have to take. Unfair right? but it’s true.

We’d love to help you relocate and find you the best possible place to live – with ease! All you’ll have to do is unpack those bags and enjoy your new beautiful home.
