Carré d’Or

The Carré d’Or is a premium neighbourhood for buyers looking to invest in the Nice real estate market.

The Carré d’Or or ‘Golden Square’ bears this name for a reason. It is a vibrant and cosmopolitan area packed with chic cafés and bars, just perfect for people watching. There are also several designer shops for a spot of retail therapy.

A favourite area among our clients and other potential property buyers in Nice, the Carré d’Or area is defined by its borders; The elegant Boulevard Victor Hugo to the North, Place Masséna and Avenue Jean Médecin to the East, Boulevard Gambetta to the West and to the South, the Promenade des Anglais.

Property for sale in the Carré d’Or really does offer the perfect location for potential buyers. Every apartment for sale in the Carré d’Or is no more than ten minutes stroll from the beach and most apartments have the Pedestrian Zone of Rue Massena and Rue de France right on their doorstop. The Zone Piétonne, as it is known to the locals, is a bustling area that is extremely popular with tourists. Buying an apartment in this area, you’ll be safe in the knowledge your pied à terre is among the most rentable property in Nice.

Though the Pedestrian Zone is the central feature of the Carré d’Or , surrounding streets including Rue de France, Rue de la Liberté, Rue Meyerbeer and Rue de la Buffa, are still just a stone’s throw from nearby shops, restaurants and of course the Promenade des Anglais. These streets can also be a little quieter than the Pedestrian Zone itself, but remaining just as popular with tourists.

The Northern border of the Carré d’Or, Boulevard Victor Hugo, is reminiscent of the luxurious, tree-lined boulevards of the Capital. Well-maintained, French style buildings and the adjacent Alsace-Lorraine park make Boulevard Victor Hugo home to much sought after apartments.

One bedroom apartments for sale in the Carré d’Or area of Nice start from around 200,000 Euros, while for a two-bedroom apartment, this figure is approximately doubled. Investors can also find exceptionally large Bourgeois style apartments in this area. These spacious and elegant properties command a minimum buying price of around 600,000 Euros.

The Carré d’Or is the epicentre of Nice and investors buying an apartment in this area of Nice can rest assured they won’t find anywhere closer to the action.
