In real estate on the French Riviera

One way to invest your money safely is in real estate. For example, a villa on the Côte d'Azur is offered for sale by the Michaël Zingraf network, for the sum of 11.4 million euros. This building, built in 2018, has many qualities, first of all it is located in a secure area, and also has 500 square metres of living space spread over three levels and a vast garden of 2,200 square metres. In addition, there are exceptional features such as a hammam, a swimming pool, a parking space for three cars, a lift and everything is protected by an alarm.
