For those wondering in which district of Monaco they should begin their search for property for rent, Fontvieille, in the west of Monaco, is a popular option. This district was almost entirely built on land reclaimed from the sea and offers a pleasant living environment that is appreciated by families.
A harbour, parks and beaches
There are many reasons why the district draws people seeking property for rent. Fontvieille borders Cap d’Ail in France, giving residents very easy access to Marquet Beach, a five-minute walk away, and a delightful long coastal path leading to the more secluded Mala Beach.
It is home to modern apartment buildings, businesses and a shopping centre, as well as Monaco’s second harbour, lined with bars and restaurants. The lovely Princess Grace Rose Garden and Fontvieille Park are among the highlights of the district.
The International University of Monaco, which is situated in the stadium, Stade Louis II (home to the football team AS Monaco), offers students the opportunity to specialise in finance, luxury, international management, marketing and sports management. Fontvieille also hosts a primary school.
Monaco’s heliport is located on the outer edge of the district and connects the Principality to Nice airport in just seven minutes.
From studios to penthouses
In terms of property for rent, Fontvieille apartments range from bright and spacious studios to luxury penthouses.
Apartment buildings such as Memmo Centre and Seaside Plaza offer residents a luxurious living environment, as well as swimming pools
centres and 24/7 concierge services
. Many apartments offers sea views and most have balconies or terraces. Residential buildings are well-designed and are often surrounded by greenery.
Large apartments with underground parking spaces can be easier to find than in other districts of Monaco.
