Do you want to know the rating of your vacation spot or just change your life? As every year, the Meillagents.com site publishes the map of France for apartment and house prices in the main seaside resorts. And the 2020 vintage, which we are revealing to you exclusively, has some surprises in store.
Brittany has never experienced such a heat stroke. "This is where prices increased the most between July 2019 and July 2020," reveals Thomas Lefebvre, scientific director of the specialist in online property valuation. They gained 6.2% over the last twelve months and more than 9.5% over two years. "
A leap which he explains by "the catching up of the prices in progress on the Breton coast". With a square meter at 2577 euros on average, the region is still affordable. This suggests that prices should climb again this year. Especially since "its attractiveness is also linked to the high speed line (LGV) which brings it closer to Paris," notes the expert. Its most expensive stations are La Trinité-sur-Mer (+ 4.4% over one year at 4,343 euros per square meter) followed by Carnac (+ 4.8%, at 3,973 euros per square meter), both in the Morbihan.
But these averages hide strong disparities. Goulien (Finistère), the wildest of our resorts, known for its huge sheer cliffs not far from the Pointe du Raz, wins the prize for the cheapest resort at 1193 euros / m2.
At the other end of France, the most expensive station is in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, in the Alpes-Maritimes, with an average price of… 13,264 euros per square meter, “a price equivalent to that practiced in the 1st arrondissement of the capital, ”according to the professional. Unsurprisingly, the coast of Provence and the Côte d'Azur (Paca) remains the most expensive (4,770 euros per square meter).

With + 12.7%, the Atlantic coast posted "the strongest price increase over two years, at 3,731 euros per square meter," notes Thomas Lefebvre. This enthusiasm is due to its accessibility, its infrastructure and the dynamism of the Aquitaine region, with Bordeaux (Gironde) in the lead. But in terms of annual growth, the Atlantic coast, up 4.2%, is outstripped by its Languedoc rival (+ 4.8%).
Conversely, the Channel has seen its prices drop slightly (- 0.6% in one year) to 2,671 euros per square meter on average. Le Touquet-Paris-Plage (Pas-de-Calais) nibbles 0.7%, while Deauville (Calvados) stagnates (-0.2% in one year).
The Côte d'Azur scrutinizes the tourist season
If the Covid-19 had little or no impact on this 2020 barometer, the next one should pay the price. "Supported by tourism and strong foreign demand, property prices on the Paca coastline may well suffer from the coming crisis," notes the analyst. And unscrew? "It all depends on the scale of the coming crisis and the development of tourism," he said.
While the Breton coastline may well fare well from the crisis. "Less popular with foreign tourists and more accessible, real estate should continue to catch up in this region, especially if teleworking intensifies to the point of causing lifestyle changes, but I doubt it," he concludes. .
