However if you allow yourself this dream then it is able to provide you much more. It can be your true reality as well as offering an exceptional life quality for you and your loved ones.
Monaco offers a combination of unique advantages in a very integrated way which makes the Principality a special place in Europe. The size of the Principality of Monaco and its Monégasque territory is approximately 2 km². Yes, it is smaller than an average district in a bigger city in other countries. Even if it is a tiny pearl with its small location it offers ultra-high secured safety, profitable fiscal system, political and economic stability, as well as an exceptional weather condition during the whole year.
Fact: In this sun filled and luxurious environment which is one of the wealthiest countries in the World, the life expectancy is 89.5 years which is the higher than any other country in the World.

What makes Monaco exciting are the advantages it offers to its residents even if the Principality is strongly influenced by its relationship with France.
Monaco and France have always worked hand in hand throughout the history and often France provided protection for the population of this tiny country. This French-Monégasque relationship was also built on very strategic pillars. Due to its location between the borders of Italy and France Monaco always played an important strategic role.
However we have to emphasise that the Principality of Monaco is not a French county or a French territory. There are many differences between the two cultures even if they share some of the social backgrounds and the economic aspects. Monaco’s low local population has been always isolated by the sea and the surrounding mountains. Its natural boundaries created for the Principality a great isolation protecting Monaco from the external influences.
Monaco never intended to merge peoples’ cultural diversity, it just creates a platform to unite diverse interests of its residents coming from almost 140 nations. It is also reflected in the fact that the Principality is exceptionally rich in its cultural life holding more than 700, often world class events every year, offering a very diversified program for each members of a family.
Since 1993, the Principality of Monaco is a member of the United Nations, which has also helped it to develop and build up mutually beneficial links with key international organisations.
Monaco is also part of the European Monetary Zone, called Eurozone. However Monaco is not a member of the European Union.
Probably this independent environment, vibrant and multi-cultural community has attracted many foreigners from over hundreds of nations.
The Principality also has a very specific real-estate market marking Monaco as a number one real-estate investment territory in Europe. It also provides great business and investment conditions.
The new district, Portier Cove (Anse du Portier) will house up to 1,000 new residents in super luxurious apartments. This new two billion Euro project will be fully finished by 2026 and will be done at no costs for Monaco since it is entirely financed by the private sector.
