In the Northeast of the Principality, between the French municipality of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin and Monte-Carlo, Larvotto shows its various panoramas on the seafront. In just over fifty years, this inhospitable and abandoned district knew an incredible evolution under the leadership of Prince Rainier III.
 
More than 30 % of its surface was built on the sea to host one of the residential zones including the Avenue Princess Grace. It also has created several beaches, a center of congress, a performance hall, two apartment hotels and several parks which are appreciated by walkers the year round.

In 1868,the arrive of the “ path of iron“ (“chemin de fer“) in Monaco gave a new impulse to this area that started gradually rising in development.The “Roaring twenties,the first summer Sporting and the Monte-Carlo Beach makes it take size in the 1930s.The landfill of the path in 1956 allows the creation of the boulevard du Larvotto then for the construction of maritimes full lands in the 1960s gave it its actual appearance.With the vocation of both residential and touristic,the Larvotto is today the area most populated of the Principality.Also,the incredible project of the “portier“,a new area of six hectares gained on the sea at the horizon of 2025,should reinforce a little bit more the tendency.Remember that 20% of the monégasque territory has been gained on the sea!

Zenitude at the Japanese Garden

In between the Grimaldi Forum and the Fairmont hotel,to the foot of Monte-Carlo , a little corner of Japan offers its tranquility and beauty.

This amazing garden of 7000 square meters lets a fragrance pass from its Mediterranean neighbor,but a savant marriage of elements carries you to a single journey the country of rising sun.The nature represents itself here under the form of well living art work,where the water is omnipresent,whereas the vegetation is present with rigor and poetry..The rocks associate themselves as a whole to form a hill,acascade,a beach,a stream from which are posed typical Japanese shelters.The harmony that clears itself invites to the contemplation and for some to the meditation.

After having named her after him,the latter resold her in 1914,then redeemed her in 1925 once again,before passing the property to the Tribunal Members Relief Fund of the simple police of London at the beginning of the 1930s.Villa Sauber then passed in between many hands before definitely entering in the national monégasquepatrimony,composing today the new National Monaco Museum with the Villa Paloma situated on the heights of the Principality.
