Property in Mont Boron
Possibly the most celebrated suburb of Nice, Mont Boron is perhaps the best located in terms of access to the Riviera’s hot spots. It crowns the hill overlooking Nice, tumbling slowly down to Nice Port on one side, and the bay of Villefranche on the other.
Like Cimiez, there are plenty of places to buy bread, drink a coffee and pick up the daily newspaper. Better still, many of our properties for sale in this area are also within walking distance of Nice Port. Public transport is also of a high standard in this area, with two bus routes wheeling their way around the tangle of villas and upscale apartment blocks every 20 minutes or so.
In terms of building stock, Mont Boron is as elegant as they come. The fabulous fin de siecle villas and apartments here are joined by some grand architectural follies including several castles, a Floridian mansion and a Rajasthani fort. Matisse adored this area and was a member of the local club nautique. Wealthy modern day residents include Elton John, who lives by Mont Boron’s panoramic park on the centre of the plateau.
A volley of cool 1970s apartment blocks lie at the bottom of the hill, close to the Port and beach road of Boulevard Franck Pilatte. We often have properties for sale in this coastal area of Mont Boron, many with sea views, balconies and terraces.
Old or new, prices in Mont Boron have remained as upbeat as any other timelessly elegant area of the French Riviera. Stock is limited and there is always a market for rental and purchase in this sought-after suburb of Nice.
