Many celebrities, such as Elton John and Brigitte Bardot, have homes on the Cote d’Azur. Officially, the Côte d’Azur is home to 163 nationalities with 83,962 foreign residents, although estimates of the number of non-French nationals living in the area are often much higher.
The area was frequented by the likes of Coco Chanel, David Niven, Isadora Duncan, F Scott Fitzgerald, Aldous Huxley, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, and now may be one of the world’s best places to live?
