Buying a Villa in Monaco

Real estate in Monaco is a wide field in which each client can find his dream home. Sea views and large living space, high standard fittings or little base in the Principality… Just as much characteristics that allow the Monaco Real Estate Market to offer a large selection of properties for sale and for rent.

However, villas in Monaco are the rarest properties and represent only the smallest part of the Monaco housing stock available for sale. Some of these houses are located on the Rocher or in the Jardin Exotique, but there are some that are hidden in the different areas of Monaco. Most of the houses are similar to London mansions with beautiful entrance halls, vast open plans and gardened terraces. As Monaco is a very small country, it is quite impossible to find a property for sale with a large plot of land.

The market of Villas in Monaco

The atypic side of the Villas in Monaco is illustrated by the different architectures of each property. For example, the Villa Troglodyte is a unique property built in the rocks. Located in the Jardin Exotique, this villa of approx. 500sqm of total area includes an indoor swimming pool. Built in 2019 by architect Jean-Pierre Lott, it meets all standards in terms of sustainable construction and environment: photovoltaic panels, cork insulation, rain water collectors…

Some villas are unique thanks to their history. One of them is Villa Echauguette that our agency Monte-Carlo Sotheby’s International Realty had the rare opportunity to propose for sale in 2018. Built in the XIXth century, this house seems to be owned by François Blanc and his wife Mary, that built with Prince Charles III the district of Monte-Carlo – Current Carré d’Or – and the Société des Bains de Mer that contributed to the international development of the Principality. This exceptional property of more than 550sqm of living area has its own little garden with a 22m long private swimming pool. This exceptional Belle Epoque Villa has been entirely renovated. The main floor consists of all reception rooms and the 3 upper levels feature 5 bedrooms – one of them with a private terrace with Jacuzzi - and a library. The Villa Echauguette also has a double garage.

Some villas with undeniable charm of the Belle Epoque on the Cote d’Azur have kept their Bourgeois Style typical from this period. Built on several floors, these properties keep beautiful fronts with old style moulding and high ceilings. Some even have a parking space in the lower floor or in a neighbour residence, parking in the property being impossible due to the size of the land. That's the case for the Villa les Flots located in the area of Saint Roman

Other houses are so emblematic from the Principality, even id their style slightly changes from the original Mediterranean architecture. That’s the case for Villa d’Ispahan located in the Jardin Exotique. Built at the beginning of the XXth century by an Iranian Prince, the villa has colored fronts in a beautiful oriental style.

Then, there is also a possibility to buy a “Bare Ownership” or to rent a house in Monaco. The Villa Pinède for example is a property that is available only for rent. This modern villa is located in the Larvotto area. With a little private garden and a beautiful round shaped swimming pool , this waterfront property is unique in Monaco.
