Living in Monaco - A Guide

Posted by Hanushka Toni - 2018-09-07

Living in Monaco opens the door to a lifestyle quite unlike any other. While each home in the city-state possesses one of the world’s most exclusive addresses, it is not just the Principality’s prestige that draws the world’s elite to set up home here, nor is it solely the famously attractive tax advantages either. Living in Monaco is to live the Mediterranean dream, in a glittering seafront city of opulent casinos, haute couture boutiques, and belle époque hotels. Superyachts crowd into the immense port, and blue-green waters lap upon the beaches of this stunning stretch of coast, creating an idyllic air of luxuriousness. Miells & Partners presents just some of the many reasons as to why the most discerning of residents choose to call Monaco home. Allow these factors spur your relocation to the Principality and our guide to buying in Monaco assist with the purchase of your new home.

A Superb Mediterranean Climate

Monaco’s Mediterranean climate delivers warm, dry summers, and mild, sunny winters, with over 300 days of sunshine throughout the year. Perched on the steep coast with French territory on three sides and Italy just a stone’s throw to the east, Monaco is the ideal place from which to enjoy all the refined pleasures and natural beauty of the French and Italian Rivieras, as well as the superb skiing in the Maritime Alps in the cooler months. As is famously noted, the French Riviera (including Monaco) is one of the few places on earth you can be skiing down fresh powder in the morning, and relaxing on the beach with a cocktail in the afternoon.


Fabulous Events Year-Round

Unlike many other European tourist destinations, Monaco is an exciting city to live in all year round. Living in Monaco, you can enjoy the roar of the crowd during the Monaco Grand Prix, watch the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters tennis tournament, and admire the magnificent superyachts during the Monaco Yacht Show. Between world-class performances by the Monte Carlo Opera and Ballet, international music events, and an action-packed cultural calendar of exhibitions, sailing regattas, and Christmas events, Monegasque residents always have something wonderful coming up in their calendars.


Michelin-star Dining, Glamorous Day Spas, and A-list Clubs

This tiny stretch of coastline is home to some of the most celebrated restaurants in the world, and when you’re living in Monaco, you get to enjoy them all at your leisure. The most prestigious of them all is the 3-Michelin-starred Le Louis XV Alain Ducasse at the Hotel de Paris, but you have so many splendid dining options to choose from, including the Joel Rubochon at Hotel Metropole.

Monaco also has many glamorous places to while away lazy days at a beach club, such as the Monte Carlo Beach Club and Note Blue. And if you’re in the mood to be pampered, Monaco offers numerous decadent day spas, including the stunning three level Thermes Marins Monte Carlo.

When night falls, the energy level rises, with drinks at Bar Americain followed by music at the Buddha Bar and finally on to Jimmy’z, Monaco’s most glamorous nightclub.


Monaco’s Future is Bright

As a future-focussed country with a tiny geographical footprint of just 2 square kilometres, Monaco is always looking for inventive ways to reshape its urban geography and build Monaco bigger and better than ever.

Monaco has a history of reclaiming land from the sea, and that tradition continues with the exciting new development, which will add 15 acres of land to the Principality. There are also a large number of building projects underway in Monaco, including the new college, a new hospital, and many residential and commercial developments. The famous One Monte-Carlo residence was recently inaugurated. For the residents and citizens of Monaco, the city-state just keeps getting better.

A Safe Clean Country

Monaco is one of the safest locations on the planet, with every inch of the Principality covered by 24-hour CCTV cameras, and an enviable ratio of one policeperson for every 100 Monegasque residents. The city streets and gardens are beautifully manicured and extremely clean, making Monaco an extremely pleasant and pretty place to live.
