The Villa Échauguette, the Principality’s jewel

29 March 2024 - 1 min

A jewel of inestimable value. This enthusiastic opinion does not fade when we evoke the Villa Echauguette in the streets of Monaco. This historical villa of the Principality, with a Belle Époque style, is located in the center of Monte-Carlo, perched on a cliff overlooking the Sainte-Dévote valley. It offers a great view over the Mediterranean, the port, the Palais princier and of course the famous F1 circuit. The building has almost 700m2 of livable space spread over 6 steps.

Huge in proportions, but not only that... the villa is also part of the Principality's rich history, and is closely linked to it. Indeed, the property belonged to the founder of the Casino de Monte-Carlo, François Blanc (1806-1877), nicknamed "the founding father of Monte-Carlo''. His second wife, Marie Blanc, helped transform Monaco by making it a paradise for high society.

A spectacular renovation in 2008

The Échauguette villa, one of the last “Belle Époque” villas still existing in their entirety has known a major renovation in 2008. The villa was modernized deeply, with the utmost comfort. The property possesses 6 bedrooms including a parental suite, a library, an office, a lounge, a dining room giving access to a private rooftop and an independent studio.

Outside, the Échauguette comprises a private pool of 22 meters (one of the biggest of the Principality), an adjoint jacuzzi, a sauna and a summer kitchen. On the top, the library terrasse offers a breathtaking panorama over Monaco and an impressive view over the Formula 1 circuit. Finally, the villa has two independent elevators with access to all the floors. Downstairs, a huge wine cellar and a garage that is able to welcome two vehicles.

Outstanding amenities spread over 700m2. A prime location in the heart of Monaco. Estimated at over 110 million euros, the Villa Echauguette is one of the Principality's most prized jewels.
