Tropezian Real Estate Market Analysis

Signpost of St Tropez, Ramatuelle and Gassin– In general

The most famous fishing village in the world is also one of the most active real estate markets in France.

It’s a special market, as there will always be lovers for heavenly places.
Here, we invest above all in pleasure.
Saint-Tropez is a perpetual discovery, with constantly new detours that seduce lovers of this unique setting.

We are essentially in a second home market where properties presented at their fair value lead to rapid transactions.
This point illustrates the role played by the real estate agent during the estimation phase of the property, while some owners sometimes let themselves be dragged by the media that report the prices of exceptional transactions.
The risk is to scare away customers and to “wear out” the few real villas for sale by leaving them too long on the market.

The trend, in terms of desired houses, oscillates between the authentic mas to renovate and the contemporary turnkey villa.

Ownership on the peninsula is a privilege that is not acquired at less than 2 million euros for a villa with 4 bedrooms with swimming pool and work needed.

For a contemporary turnkey villa, without sea view, you need to invest 3 to 5 million euros.

In addition, in order to enjoy a sea view, an investment between 6 and 8 million euros will be the minimum required, and double if you are looking for a property with a large park and a panoramic view.

As for the waterfront villa, located in a sought after area, it will take 20 million euros and a renovation will often be necessary.
Finally, if one aims for the ultimate luxury, the budget to be provided will be 40 million or more.

The prices mentioned here concern the most popular locations in Saint-Tropez: Ste-Anne, Capon, Canoubiers, Tahiti and secure areas such as “Les Parcs de Saint-Tropez” or “La Capilla”.

Neighbourhoods in the area, such as those near the beaches of Pampelonne and Escalet in Ramatuelle, or those of Moulins de Paillas and Sinopolis in Gassin, are more affordable, but the criteria “sea view” is always subject to additional charge.
