Property in Fleurs
“Fleurs attracts buyers looking for a rental income too. Who wouldn’t want to rent an apartment around the corner from the Negresco Hotel?”
Property in Nice’s Fleurs quarter boasts the best of both worlds. This upmarket zone is modern yet elegant, and central yet peaceful. Better still, properties for sale in Fleurs are a shade less expensive than in other city centre areas.
The quarter is anchored by the avenue des Fleurs. This is westward extension of the boulevard Victor Hugo – Nice’s grandest street. Avenue des Fleurs is similarly studded with belle époque mansions and art deco palazzi, plus other ritzy residences of Nice’s noble elite.
Two prestigious streets hem in the Fleurs quarter: boulevard Grosso and boulevard Gambetta. To the south it stretches a block from the sea. It’s worth noting that almost every avenue in the area is within a five-minute stroll of the seafront Negresco and Sheraton hotels. The district’s most northerly streets lead on to Nice-Ville train station, which is in the midst of a €60m renovation project. In 2018 the Fleurs area will be directly linked to Nice Airport via the new underground Tramway 2 station at Jardin Alsace Lorraine.
Property for sale in Nice’s Fleurs district is of appeal to everyone. Professional families – attracted by the local parks, schools and stores – make up the largest contingent. The area also has its fair share lawyers, doctors and Notaires offices. The tranquil elegance of Fleurs attracts buyers looking for a rental income too. Little wonder: who wouldn’t want to rent a modern apartment around the corner from Nice’s finest hotels?
Aside from the location, the housing stock of Fleurs is its greatest attraction. Nowhere in Nice has such a well-kept array of vintage villas and modern apartment blocks. The majority of properties for sale in Fleurs were built between 1970 and 1990 – with elevators, terraces and cracking views in mind.
