Interesting article from The Times newspaper, mainly focussing on the Italian Riviera but also mentioning the French Riviera too.
The article includes comments from HH Director, Tim Swannie
“The Italian Riviera is much more informal” says Tim Swannie, the founder of the property-buying agency Home Hunts. “When you cross the border you can feel almost instantly that it is less developed. The Italian Riviera consists of many smaller towns hugging the sea, there are fewer attractions compared to France and the hotels and restaurants tend to be smaller and more local”
The article goes on to compare amenities and property prices in both locations. The truth is there is something for everyone on both rivieras, they are neighbours and area easily accessible wherever you live along the coast.
