After the Vatican City, the Principality of Monaco is the smallest country in the world, but despite its minute size it still boasts a huge selection of residential property for those looking to rent or buy. There are four distinct districts that make up Monaco: Monaco-Ville; Monte-Carlo; Fontvieille and the Condamine.
A guide to the areas of Monaco
The oldest district of Monaco is called Monaco-Ville, an area that sits high up on the Rock and enjoys a bird's eye view over much of the Principality. It is here that Prince Albert II of Monaco has his official residence; it is also the district where many of the Government offices are located. Apartments for sale in this district of Monaco tend to be found in the picturesque townhouses that line cobbled streets. They are some of the oldest property in Monaco, and amongst some of the most sought-after.
If you are looking to buy a Monaco apartment where all the action happens, your best bet is to buy property in Monte-Carlo, the district that sits above the port of Monaco. This area of Monaco is arguably the most famous, and is home to the Casino de Monte-Carlo, the Hotel de Paris and popular haunts such as the Buddha Bar, Nobu and the Hotel Hermitage. Most property for sale in Monte-Carlo is found in luxurious apartment blocks, many of which have shared swimming pools but are also within a ten-minute walk to the sea.

It is now home to many of Monaco’s businesses as well as Stade Louis II, the home ground of AS Monaco.

The fourth and final district of Monaco is La Condamine, a very attractive part of the Principality, which is home to the Port, Monaco’s oldest covered market, many of the most popular bars and restaurants as well as a large number of very attractive apartment blocks.
