Tramway de Nice will create opportunities for investors and holidaymakers - bringing the suburbs closer to the sea

Villa des olives* is a child friendly villa with large grounds and room for up to 12 guests. A 15 minute drive to the water, Villa des olives will soon be even closer to the coast thanks to Nice’s new tramway, which is set to welcome its first tram on December 11th; cutting commute times and making downtown Nice pedestrian friendly.

Holiday letting properties in Nice currently attract an average of 5.9 booking enquiries per month (70.8 per annum), an astonishing 77% above the yearly average. For investors looking to take advantage of the new route around the heart of Nice now is the time. Holiday home investors and holidaymakers alike previously deterred by the chaotic city centre traffic of Nice will soon have a reliable, more eco-friendly way to get around. Whether it’s from their apartment to the shops or to dip a toe in the Mediterranean shores the Tramway is expected to open Nice and its property market to all.

“Nice is incredibly popular for short term lettings, but proximity to the sea is almost an obsession,” comments Ross Elder, Managing Director of “Many of our 200 properties in Nice highlight their distance in meters from the water, so the tramway will hopefully reduce the need for this detail, whilst also opening up other parts of the city to visitors and investors.”
