Valbonne, or ‘good valley’ as translated from the local Provençale dialect, lives up to its name in being the near perfect location in the South of France where to invest in real estate. A beautiful, historic village made up largely of 16th century buildings, Valbonne is a mere 10 kms from both iconic French Riviera destinations Cannes and Antibes. Surrounded by four first class golf courses and on the doorstep of some of Europe’s leading science and technology employers, owners of Valbonne property are within easy reach of both the incredible Mediterranean coastline and the rugged, beautiful hinterland of Provence.

The village of Valbonne is the ideal location for the ‘Silicon Valley’ of Europe, Sophia Antipolis. One of Europe’s leading technology parks, the entrance to the Sophia Antipolis Business Park is a mere 5 kms from Valbonne village. With over 1200 corporate names present representing high-tech industries such as computing, electronics and biotech, the park has been growing steadily since its foundation more than four decades ago. Major international employers such as Hewlett Packard, Accenture, America Express and Orange employ in excess of 25.000 highly skilled employees. It is hardly surprising that Valbonne real estate is a valued commodity in the area.
Medieval Valbonne village itself could not be in greater contrast to the modern sophistication of Sophia Antipolis. Its foundation is dated to 1519 and is attributed to the Bishop of the nearby town of Grasse- the modern home of perfume production in Provence. Thanks to the relatively cut-off position of the Valbonne Valley during the Middle Ages and it’s high, largely intact defensive walls, the outlook of the village itself changed little up until the start of the 20th century. Today it’s warm, welcoming Mediterranean feel- the houses and street grid pattern were created by Italian builders in the 16th and 17th century- makes visitors feel instantly at ease and create the perfect atmosphere of a bygone Renaissance era. Anyone investing in Valbonne property, does so knowing they are buying a slice of history.
The 16th century Places des Arcades forms the focal point of modern village life, much as it has done for centuries. From its bustling cafes and restaurants a veritable labyrinth of shaded streets winds its way outwards. Ochre coloured houses, lovingly adorned with flower decorated baskets offer residents as well as tourists pleasant moments of true Mediterranean strolls, interrupted by more shady squares, characteristic refreshing stone fountains and pure charm. Valbonne is an instantly captivating place and offers investors in property the rare chance to find a real home from home.
