Monaco’s idyllic location on the French Riviera coupled with its sunny climate means that gardens thrive. The tiny city-state was historically a hub of agriculture where fruits and vegetables were grown in abundance and then transported to surrounding towns from the iconic Port Hercule. The Jardin Exotique is a wonderful reminder of this bygone time and Prince Albert is a keen gardener and proponent of biodiversity, a trait he inherited from both his parents, Prince Rainier and Princess Grace.
In fact, now the Principality has grown in reputation and population, the only thing standing in the way is a lack of space. However, plenty of Monaco property is available with beautiful gardens, terraces and roof gardens that are perfect for green-fingered residents. Of course, if you need some help with your trees, flowers and plants, you can always contact one of the following high-quality gardeners.
