Not to be confused with Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat on the Cote d’Azur, Lège Cap Ferret is one of the chic seaside playgrounds close to Bordeaux and this is a rare opportunity to buy a five-bedroom waterfront villa – for €6.3m. For this price tag, it’s all about the unobstructed panoramic sea views.

Again, with this one, it’s all about the view with one of the best views of the Eiffel Tower and Seine we’ve seen, especially from the terrace of this four-bedroom penthouse apartment on the Left Bank. It’s got all the smart home technology and modern comforts that you might expect for the €10.5m.

Historic properties like this one in the Var rarely come onto the market, and this exquisite estate on 70 acres with 350 olive trees and views down towards Nice is no exception. Renovated in 2012 to a very high standard, the nine-bedroom property in Le Broc is ready to move straight into.

In the heart of the Alps’ Three Valleys, close to the beautiful traditional village of Saint-Martin-de -Belleville, this five-bedroom ski chalet is a mountain lover’s dream. The sleek new-build home offers the very best in authentic charm and modern comforts, with a sauna, home cinema and garage.

This beautiful Italianate chateau in the Loire Valley seems to offer an awful lot for just over €3m. The 687-year-old former hunting lodge and winery offers 23 rooms including 11 bedrooms, making it an ideal wedding venue and also a chambre d’hote. Elegance and history in abundance, with its tree-lined avenues, stables, and lake making it the ideal trophy home for any discerning millionaire.
