What are the property hotspots of Monaco?

If you could buy a home in Monaco where would you choose to live? Here are some of the top places to settle in this famous principality on the French Riviera

Monaco might be the second smallest country in the world, but it is also home to some of the most expensive real estate. With a population of under 40,000, it offers residents low-to-no tax rates and an ultra-glamorous lifestyle from its sun-kissed position on the Mediterranean coast.


If you are looking to buy property in Monaco, the port, Fontvieille, the Carré d’Or and Larvotto are among the most sought-after locations in this tiny principality.

Beach front or port side in Fontvieille?

The Italian architect Manfredi Nicoletti developed Fontvieille between 1970 and 1990. An area that has been reclaimed from the sea and developed in response to the land shortage in Monaco, plans to extend the area are currently being considered and overseen by Prince Albert. With four hectares of the area belonging to Fontvieille Park and the Prince Grace Rose Garden, this is a popular place to live – especially with those who like to fly in and out, as it’s also where Monaco’s Heliport can be found.
