Cote d’Azur – Jet Set Destination


Residential real estate is a tale of two markets – luxury and everything else.

To fully understand the luxury property market, it’s helpful to consider the following classifications.


  • Global Economic Hub

    e.g. London; Hong Kong; New York
  • Metropolitan

    e.g. Austin, Texas; Durban, South Africa; Portland, Oregon
  • Suburban

    e.g. Greenwich, Connecticut; Orange County, California; New Canaan, Connecticut
  • ‘Jet Set’ Destination

    e.g. Cote d’Azur, France; Turks & Caicos Islands; Cayman Islands
  • Weekender

    e.g. The Hamptons, New York; Muskoka, Ontario, Canada; Saint Jean de Luz, France
  • Lifestyle & Regional Resort

    e.g. Bordeaux, France; Santa Fe, New Mexico; Porto, Portugal

There is really no one definition of luxury – much like beauty, it’s in the eye of the beholder.

From $1.2 million entry level properties in Florida to the ultimate $147 million ‘weekender’ in the Hamptons, the definition of luxury changes depending on where you are.If you have the means, there’s a broad enough range across the markets for you to find your own definition of luxury.
