The Principality of Monaco with its famous Rock lies between France and the Mediterranean. The prestige and fame of this seductive territory surrounded by the French department of Alpes-Maritimes, extends well beyond its borders which Colette once described as being “frontiers of flowers”. Space is limited (202 ha) but the site is enchanting and unfurls along a narrow coastal strip of four kilometres bounded by the mountainous foothills of the "Tête de Chien" and "Mont Agel".
