Beausoleil - a town on the hills just above Monaco

Real estate in France and Monaco are two quite separate things. The laws and the buying process are slightly different but what is really different is the prices.

Many buyers looking to purchase their holiday apartment on the French Riviera are interested in properties particularly close to Monaco and towns on its immediate borders– Beausoleil, Cap d’Ail, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin.

About the city

Beausoleil -  a town on the hills just above Monaco


Beausoleil is a town on the hills just above Monaco, Its name in French means ‘Beautiful Sun’.

Together with Roquebrune and Cap d’Ail, Beausoleil was  part of La Turbie. When it became a separate town in 1904,  the original plan was to call it Higher Monte-Carlo because of its location above the Principality. The final choice, however, was for a name that would be attractive for tourists – Beausoleil.

It is true that there is a lot of sun here, as the town is almost like one large terrace above Monaco at a height of 89 metres above sea level, and is almost a part of Monaco.
