Luxury real estate near Monaco

The Principality of Monaco is surrounded by exclusive French towns and cities on the French Riviera, offering a wonderful lifestyle. Prices for these properties, located between land and sea, are particularly high. From Beausoleil to Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, Èze and La Turbie, these towns bordering Monaco attract tourists and investors looking to enjoy an exclusive lifestyle during the holiday season or throughout the year!


Focus on the South of France and the ultra-luxurious properties of the French Riviera! In addition to its landscapes, worthy of the greatest artists, its world-renowned festivals, romantic villages, exotic gardens and lighthouses, the region also enjoys amazing sunshine, attracting Parisians who are more accustomed to grey skies and gloom.

Thanks to their proximity to the rather eccentric Principality of Monaco, Cap d’Ail, Beausoleil, La Turbie, Èze and even Roquebrune-Cap-Martin are particularly attractive to purchasers looking for exceptional properties. An overview of the property market along this coastline.

Real estate in Beausoleil

Real estate prices in Beausoleil, a town bordering Monaco, are high compared to the rest of the Alpes-Maritimes (averaging 7,300 euros/m2 as opposed to 4,700 euros/m2 for the 06 department, according to SeLoger.)

Beausoleil, located inland, just a few minutes from the Principality, boasts a stunning sea view. Thanks to its elevated position and commanding view of the Monaco coastline, it is known as the Balcony of the Mediterranean. It is also called “Petit Montmartre” because of its Belle Époque architecture and features numerous iconic buildings including the Riviera Palace’s superb conservatory.

Real estate in Èze

Èze, a village seemingly hanging in mid-air, is steeped in history. Its botanical garden, suspended between the sky and sea, offers a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean. Contemporary-style villas line the coast of this village which inspired author, George Sand to write the following: “This view of the Corniche is really magical...The ruins of Eze, planted on a cone-shaped rock, with a picturesque village perched on a sugar loaf, inevitably arrest the gaze. This is the most beautiful, the most complete and the best composed view of the road. In the foreground, the amazing gap in the mountains opens to reveal the Saracen fortress at the bottom of an abyss dominating another abyss.”

Prices in Èze average in excess of 8,000 euros/m2.
