What does Bord de Mer mean in a French real estate ad?

If you are looking to buy a French property by the sea you will be looking for the term ‘bord de mer’ in a French real estate advertisement which means on the edge of or ‘by the sea’.

Note: if you read ‘Apercu Mer’ this means in general there is a small view of the sea from the property. For example, you can see the sea between two buildings or between trees. It does not mean the property is by the sea, the ‘apercu mer’ could be a distant sea view.
