Coastline Construction

In FRANCE, coastline construction must be in compliance with local laws and some principles must be taken into consideration from the beginning :

1- The shore always belongs to local authorities or to the state. It is never private. The simple use of the word "private", for example the common expression "private beach" is in fact forbidden by the French regulations.

2- You can not purchase a property with private access to the shore. You can only purchase a property and thereafter ask for an AOT (Autorisation d'Occupation Temporaire). The AOT is an non-permanent and temporary authorization to use the shore. This AOT must be renewed at lesat annualy. It can never be sold with the property.

3- Rights to shore access are more and more difficult to obtain in France and especially on the côte d'azur.   French Riviera Consulting specializes in helping you obtain this AOT. We only charge on a success fee basis so do not hesitate to contact us.
