Monaco Real Estates
A dynamic country with a way of life unique in Europe …. Welcome to Monaco !
The Principality of Monaco has been an independent state for over 700 years and is the second-smallest state in the world after the Vatican. A member of the UN since 1993, it has a population of 35,000 and is a constitutional, hereditary monarchy whose head of state is Prince Albert. This world-famous enclave on the prestigious French Riviera, set like a jewel in the Mediterranean coastline, can be reached from the international airport at Nice in 30 minutes by road, or via a 7-minute flight to the Principality’s heliport.
Covering an area of 2.5 km², Monaco enjoys a unique setting between the mountains and the sea. Its mild climate means that there are more than 300 days of sunshine per year, and its safety, its way of life and its glamour add to its appeal. The casinos of Monte-Carlo, the Formula 1 Grand Prix, the Monaco Yacht Show, the lavish soirées that punctuate the Principality’s social calendar, the elegant boutiques and the restaurants and hotels serving cuisine from famous chefs - all of these contribute to Monaco’s reputation.
However, it is not just the way of life that draws the world’s leading figures to Monte Carlo, but its economic and cultural dynamism, with the Ballets de Monte-Carlo, high-quality theatre productions, concerts of classical and pop/rock music, business seminars and a variety of exhibitions. The presence of the world’s most prestigious fashion houses, a strong and diverse banking sector, and numerous world-famous companies make Monaco an attractive place to live or base a business. Its taxation system is fully harmonized with European legislation, but it remains extremely attractive from a tax standpoint. This combination of advantages gives the Principality a unique appeal, with the result that there are 121 different nationalities among those who have the privilege of living or working there.
