How Would You Like to Buy the Perfect Cote d’Azur Property For You?
What if You Could Also Buy For 28% Less Than the Market Value?
Many of RHFs clients fly in for a three or four day property viewing visit whereby we aim to show them the very best property at the time that fits the budget and the wish list of you the client.
Often this results in the ideal conclusion, i.e. you find the home of your dreams and get an offer accepted.
Often though it can also result in discovering that your budget maybe isn’t quite enough to get exactly what you want and then comes the question of either compromising your wish list or increasing your budget.
Sometimes your visit can result in actually finding the perfect property, getting all excited about it and then when decision time comes and you end up walking away due to worries about the market or your ability to actually afford it.
This can be the worst possible outcome as you could easily miss out on all the plusses and pleasures of owning a property in this beautiful location…
Occasionally you might visit, view all the best available properties, and decide that nothing actually fits your requirements perfectly enough…
Lastly, many of RHFs clients are now looking for a good solution to the question of where best to invest your money when the stock market is unpredictable…

On Time… On Budget… High Quality…
To help our clients get exactly what they want we are prepared to introduce our builder and construction package to you and to over see the build for you and make sure that it is delivered on budget, in time and to a high quality…
Sizes Costs and Margins…
To give you the best idea of the costs involved (i.e. the savings!) here is an outline guide to help you get an idea of what you can get for the money based on the following standard of quality build:
- 240m2 (~2700 ft2) of villa.
- 2500ms (~2 thirds of an acre) plot.
- Sea view or other quality location. (Remember the three rules of buying property!)
- Latest “Monomur” construction (5 times the performance of other materials).
- Underfloor heating.
- High performance hardwood argon double glazed windows.
- High insulation, green construction, low running costs.
- Beautiful stone floors in the living areas.
- Stunning solid oak parquet floors in the bedrooms.
- Four double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms.
- 10m x 5m swimming pool.
|Sea View Plot or Plot in Walking Distance of Sought After Village/Town|
Average special RHF price per square metre € 2,900 (a special concessionary discount from our preferred builder passed on to you).
Note: The normal regional construction costs to this standard are between minimum €3,000 per m2 and up to €4,000 per m2 so already there is a saving here of 240m2 x €100 minimum i.e. a saving of €24,000 compared to other construction companies).
A villa averaging 240m2 will roughly cost therefore € 696,000 to build.
The typical cost of the building land (in the right location) will be approximately € 550,000.
Land plus build costs therefore should be around ~€ 1,250,000
The finished value of a villa built to the above standard and in the “right location” at todays values will be approximately € 1,500,000 to € 1,600,000.
Profit or Safety Margin of up to 28% on Day One!
The “safety” margin or the “profit” margin therefore on delivery could be at least € 250,000 (20%) and perhaps as high as € 350,000 (28%)…
Nice to have a built in profit from day one and comforting to know that you would be getting so much extra value for comparitively little budget…

My dear colleagues Karin and Leo de Bruine sold this fabulous sunny villa in les Adrets (beautiful views, situated in a quiet area and with a fabulous, big garden and overflow pool - what more could a person wish for!!) and I did a painting for their client, a sympathetic lady from Singapore who, by the way decided to buy it while the rain was pouring down - that’s how much she liked the house – and she was wearing summer gear and tiny Hermès sandals. Luckily Leo, always the gentleman, had a big parasol handy – and as you can see it worked out. Needless to say that rain is not common in our area!

For many people, learning a new language is a great idea but one that makes them uneasy. In fact, the main thing you have to do when you start out with another language is remember lists of words and sentences. What happens is that you gradually learn more words and then the rules of grammar, and you find out it’s much easier than you imagined. What often happens is that people find they can one day speak a new language without even realizing how much they’ve learned. Not all methods of learning work for everyone, so when you decide to learn French, or any language, you have to use the right method for you.
Find a friend who knows French fluently to help you learn French. Such a friend will greatly accelerate your learning the right usage of the language as well as the right pronunciation. Another great advantage is you’ll feel more comfortable with making mistakes and trying new words or phrases. One important point is that learning will become a lot of fun for both of you. Also, as you two work together both of you will realize the best approach for you to learn. You really can learn much faster this way because this person will recognize the best way for you to learn and will be better able to help you.
You can also take a class in the language you want to study. Taking a class has always been the most recommended way to learn a new language. Because taking a class is one of the best ways to learn! Skilled instructors have figured out the best way to learn a new language a little bit at a time. They teach everything in a well designed order, so you learn everything using a well tested system. The classroom setting also gives you instant feedback, so any errors that you make are always corrected. Another thing some people like about a language class is that it can be a relaxed and social way to learn, as everyone is working on the same goals and no one will be upset if you make a mistake.
Start labeling everything in your home with labels that have their French name attached. Learning the names of everyday items will be very helpful in your French learning efforts. This way is the best way to learn for some because these words literally become apart of your everyday life. So, when you put some clothes into the dryer you will automatically be reminded of the word for dryer. It won’t be long before hearing the word or seeing it used elsewhere will bring to mind a visual image, and you’ll start to truly understand what is being said in the language you want to learn! So you can learn another language in a way that is enjoyable. If you get a little creative, you can see that there are many ways to make it simpler and more fun! It may take you a while to find and settle on the system that is just right for you. If you are like many people, you may find that you have to study a language using several different methods until you one day find the system that perfectly accommodates your own style of learning. If this happens to you, there is no reason to be upset. Another thing that often happens is that all the studying you’ve done one day “clicks” and you realize that you can really speak French well!

…and finally darkened the shadows, added more contrast for a sunny effect and finished the trees – and there you have the result! The sunny happy house RHF sold to the lucky new owners!

My good friends Bill and Carole Lomas, who have a real estate firm too – “Maison 2“, sold a wonderful 3-bedroom property in Seillans, a village in the Var… With a stunning view.
The main house itself has 600m² of living space and is set on a private estate of 13 acres bordering on the river Brague. It is completely secluded and every view from it is over private land. The villa has a total of 9 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, including a downstairs ‘guest wing’ with 2 double guest bedrooms plus a separate two-bedroom annexe.
The immaculate, extensive gardens are a perfect playground for all ages. There is a large pool, heated of course, with a fully equipped pool house. A new orchard with greenhouse, along with a large new playhouse/atelier is situated on top of the hill where the new full tennis court is also situated.
The river Brague is filled with fresh water trout, there is a man-made pond with fish, ducks and turtles, as well as a waterfall. A footpath runs around the entire property for a lazy afternoon walk. And just outside the property there’s a large nature reserve. For the real walkers: it is a 3 hour walk along the river to the medieval village of Biot — and the beach.
You ‘ll agree that this must be one of the finest properties on the market today – in a very exclusive location! And it is now back on the market – Riviera Home Finders’ Jeroen Zaat has it in exclusivity. If you are interested in this property or want more information you can contact him directly or via the RHF website!
