Mont Boron

Wealth Management in Monaco

Mont Boron is the most prestigious area of Nice. Bordering Nice's historic Port, Mont Alban and Villefranche sur mer, Mont Boron is a hill that descends to the Mediterannean Sea, emcompassing many stylish villas and plush residences along the way.

The steep incline ensures breathtaking views of the the Baie des Anges (Angels Bay) on one side and Villefranche Bay and Cap Ferrat on the other side, with the surrounding Tourqouise blue sea. In the upper areas of Mont Boron, one can find a 57 acre protected forest (Parc Forestier du Mont-Boron) that sits behind some of the more prestigious villas, guaranteeing privacy and tranquility. Mont Alban fort is one of the landmarks of the area, where views of Nice and Villefranche and even Italy can be enjoyed.

Lower Mont Boron, from the Port of Nice rising to the Col de Villefranche via the Moyenne Corniche road, benefits from the proximity of commodities such as newsagents and bakeries at the Col de Villefranche and from the commercial centre of Nice. In winter, the snow-peaked Alps can be seen in the distance, a reminder of the relative proximity of great ski resorts (90 minute drive). For waterfront property, the Cap de Nice boasts excellent waterfront apartment buildings and several villas with direct access to the water.

Due to the long history of Mont Boron as a destination for the well heeled, the predominant architecture is Belle Epoque, Art Deco and 1950's style. Large Belle Epoque villas can be found on Mont Boron with magnificent views and privacy. These properties regularly run into the several million Euro price bracket.

Apartments in Mont Boron start at 500,000 Euro, going to a multiple of this figure for waterfront property or vast apartments in some of the older Belle Epoque villas. The newer apartment buildings generally have terraces and secure parking.

Villas in Mont Boron are heavily influenced by the Belle Epoque style and demand is therefore strong. Prices start from around the 1,000,000 Euro mark on the Mont Alban side, rising as one gets closer to the waterfront.
