Living in Nice

Moving to Nice

Nice is the fifth most populous city in France and the capital of the Alpes-Maritimes département. Living in Nice means enjoying all of the benefits of the French Riviera. Also known as the Côte d’Azur, between the Mediterranean Sea and the foot of the Alps, Nice is within easy reach of the principality of Monaco and beautiful Cannes. The natural beauty and mild Mediterranean climate of the area make it a very popular destination, with a diverse international community moving to Nice and the surrounding areas including Menton to Villefranche, Antibes and Mougins.


Expats in Nice

Expats in Nice and the surrounding area have access to stunning beaches, magnificent landscapes and fantastic culture. Living in Nice offers an enviable quality of life, with swathes of its historic old town of vieux Nice pedestrianised and plenty of cobbled squares where children can let off steam while adults dine on a nearby terrace. 


Living on the French Riviera

The city’s strategic location, international airport and bustling port make it a popular choice for relocation to the south of France, with expats from around the world moving to Nice. Many international families living on the Cote d’Azur choose to send their children to a combination of local and international schools. Many families living in Monaco and the surrounding towns are multilingual, with a hugely international population speaking a range of different languages.
