The Bistrot Gourmand is a classic Provencal bistro with bright French windows, modern art dotted on the walls and well-presented dishes of local favourites with a modern twist. The menu changes several times a week so each dining experience here will be delightfully different! We recommend the likes of the fillet of turbot in a lemon sauce with veg from the nearby Forville market which looks and tastes terrific. As do cod in fig leaves or lamb chops in a mustard sauce.

We have created a helpful checklist to ensure a smooth and simple booking process before arriving at your dream villa. 

Pip-point what most important to you

Have a clear vision in your mind of what you want from your holiday experience. Would you prefer a quiet, private hideaway or a villa that is seafront? Are you looking for something with modern interiors and design or traditional features and charm?
If you need staff, drivers or private security it is best to let us know in advance so that they can be easily organised in good time before your holiday. It is important to communicate your needs as clearly as you can to a specialist rental company such as Elegant Address South of France, so that our experts can efficiently match you with your ideal rental property for the perfect holiday experience.

People enjoy visiting particular areas for different reasons, for instance if you want to see the Grand Prix you need to be in, or near Monaco, and if you want to be close to beaches, shopping and glamour you would choose Cannes or St Tropez. Even if you prefer a more quiet and cultural trip there are beautiful medieval towns that will charm you and invite you back each year. There really is a place for every taste on the Cote d’Azur, just try to narrow it down to your top 3 to help rental specialists find your perfect villa.

Have a budget in mind

5 steps of buying property in France


France is one of the most popular countries to buy property abroad, and it's not hard to guess why with the countries fantastic landscapes with coastlines and countryside, rich history, incredible food and of course the world famous wine. 

Whether you are looking for a holiday home or want to relocate; buying a property in France is straight-forward as long as you know the process! Here are our five top things to consider when buying a property in France. 


1. You need a 'Notaire'

Notaires is very similar to UK solicitors, they represent and act on behalf of the buyer and seller during the purchasing process of any piece of land or property in France. They are a mandatory if you are thinking of buying a house as their primary role is to ensure that everything about the sale is legal, follows the correct protocols and the appropriate taxes are paid on purchase of the property. 

Taxes can vary from 2.5% for a new build, up to 8% depending on the property's value. A proportion of the taxes also involve the french equivalent of stamp duty. 

2. Survey the property
Surveys are not common in France but it is possible to arrange one and we would advice you having one done before the inital contract. This is so there can be conditional clauses added into the contract if needed, on completion of the survey. If you do not choose to conduct a survey, sellers are still required by law to provide reports on lead, asbestos, termites, gas, energy efficiency, water drainage and natural/technological risks. 


3. Compromis de Vente

A compris is the preliminary contract between the buyer and the seller which is drawn up by the notaire once an offer has been accepted. There can be 'suspensive' clauses added into this first contract which means there are conditions to the sale, such as the buyer obtaining a mortgage. If the conditional clauses are not met then the seller does not have to accept the offer. 


4. Cooling off period
Once the Compris de Vente is signed by both parties, there is a 10 day cooling off period to allow the buyer to withdraw from the sale if they wish, without loss of their deposit. The deposit is usually 10% of the property price. 


5. Acte de Vente

This is the final contract which is signed by both parties. If the buyer cannot attend for any reason, they can appoint a power of attorney to sign on their behalf. This is then the stage when the final sale price is paid, along with the fees/taxes. 

We are award-winning specialists in the South of France who offer luxury properties for sale and rental. We will happily search the market to find your perfect property and personally assist you in the purchasing process! Contact us today to talk to our dedicated French Riviera specialists today for more information on how we can help.

France shares its borders with eight different nations so it’s easy to ‘country-hop’ and make the make the most of your holiday, even if you just pop over for the day!

3. The Weather
One of the most famous and favourable aspects of visiting the Cote d’Azur is the incredible weather. With bright blue skies, sparkling sunshine, hot summers and even enjoying mild climates during autumn, it’s no surprise that even the head to the sunny south on holiday. “Of the 60 per cent of French people who go away on holiday, some 80 per cent stay within their own country,” points out Anthony Peregrine, author of Telegraph Travel's Le Rosbif


4. The history and heritage
The French have a fantastic reputation for looking after their heritage and proudly promoting their history. They have a talent for keeping historical sites immaculate and interesting; making them relevant and exciting in the present as they were in their heyday.

Do The French Have The Perfect Work-Life Balance?

Lunch Break: 1.5 – 2hrs

The French are famous for their leisurely long lunches and leaving the office early which makes us slightly jealous and left wondering whether stress exists in France.

 How many times have you sat at your desk on your lunch break, furiously eating a salad or squashed sandwich whilst on the phone to your bank or energy company at the same time as trying to write a well versed email?



The British are notoriously bad for not taking a lunch break. The most we step away from our desks is to pop across the road to pick up a takeaway sandwich from the local Pret A Manger, or at a push, squeeze in a sweaty spin class to try and relieve some stress. When was the last time you went for a wander or took your full lunch hour to catch up with a friend?  


The French live life a much simpler way. Your lunchtime may include a restful hour and a half in a local restaurant with a friend or reading your book in the sunshine by the beach under the cloudless sky. Lunch is very important to the French. Even ‘work lunches’ will consist of a starter, main, cheese course and dessert and if you have to slum it in the work canteen (which offers free meals) you can enjoy delicacies such as fresh sea bass and greens in a butter and caper sauce.

The French have a much better and healthier viewpoint on food and lunch in general compared to the Brits. Instead of seeing lunch as a time to ‘refuel’ they believe it is a time to maintain friendship and helps with productivity.

Working Week: 35 hours


France has the shortest working week in Europe with just 35 hours. French workers also get 50% of their transport costs covered each month, double pay at Christmas and some workers even having a ‘no emails after 6pm’ rule. Extra life celebration perks include receiving 4 days off for your wedding and 16 weeks maternity leave compared to the UK’s 6 weeks. Wouldn’t that be lovely?!


People can obviously choose to work a little longer if they wish but they will either receive overtime pay or the equivalent time off next month which could add up to two extra days off! Bob Hancké, associate professor of political economy at London School of Economics and Political Science explains. “France’s working week is officially limited to 35 hours. But local trade unions can negotiate arrangements that deviate, as long as the average annual working time is 35 hours,” he says. “What’s worked above that is in principle overtime and paid as such (usually at 100% extra).”


Does it make a difference?


“One of the positive things I’ve noticed about French working culture is that even when things are busy and people are putting in the hours, you still have a life,” says Louise Preston, 31, who’s spending a year working in Paris as head of curriculum development at a small start-up. “We work in a high-paced environment but my colleagues still all play sports, go to the cinema, eat out or visit art galleries during the week. Life isn’t just about work, and even if you finish late, you still make the effort to do something, like head to a late-night exhibition. There’s a real value to spending spare time wisely and I just don’t think that exists to the same extent in the UK.”

It’s no surprise, then, that research carried out by totaljobs.com has found that British workers suffer more stress and feel less able to deal with their workloads than the French. According to the 2014 research, only 13% of UK employees reported feeling no stress and “on top of their workload”. The French were among the least stressed, with 64% of employees reporting that they felt no stress at all at work and had no problem handling their workloads.
87% of UK employees feel stressed and can't handle their workload
 Although we have different working laws and longer working weeks, the French do seem to be onto something. They have a healthier view on a work-life balance, not letting it take over your personal time and development. Although we might not stop working at 6pm we will definitely start by treating ourselves to a lunch outside of the office today!
