Mindfully designed for Monaco’s Jardin Exotique district and built on a promontory overlooking the Mediterranean, the new luxury development L’Exotique combines stunning architecture, elegant residences and amenities, all set amidst lush, tropical foliage.
Keep on reading to learn more about Monaco’s L’Exotique project and what sets this striking new development apart from the others.
Monaco’s L’Exotique project
A verdant oasis in the heart of the principality
The landscape gardening of Monaco’s L’Exotique project creates a true oasis for residents and is arguably one of its highlights.
Hanging gardens are one of the hallmarks of the landscape of L’Exotique, which was designed by French architect Rudy Ricciotti. Olive trees and exotic flowering plants surround the residences, all of which have terraces of varying shapes and sizes with spectacular views from the cliffside.
The new development L’Exotique has been purposefully designed to blend in with the neighbouring Jardin Exotique, Monaco’s stunning botanical garden. The relocation and expansion of the botanical garden were also part of Riccotti’s holistic development project.
The verdant surroundings contribute to the peaceful atmosphere of this new Monaco development, where the predominant sounds are the chirping of birds and cicadas, and where the calm blue greens of the sea pair perfectly with the colours of L’Exotique.
Luxury living at L’Exotique Monaco’s new development
This new luxury Monaco development is one of the most sought-after addresses in the principality. The L’Exotique project includes 50 luxury apartments and 15 floors of underground parking that can accommodate 1,850 vehicles. Floor-to-ceiling windows maximise the light inside each residence, and the use of natural materials, including wood and stone, reflects the respect for natural materials and sustainability.
A two-storey penthouse with 420 metres of outdoor space and 360-degree views offers the pinnacle of luxury. The rooftop garden surrounds a pool and solarium, and a spacious patio connects the two floors. Inside are four master bedrooms and an airy living room with sea views.
L’Exotique’s stunning gardens have been designed to lure residents outdoors, encouraging them to enjoy an al fresco Mediterranean lifestyle along with the views afforded not only of the sea, but also of the historic Rock of Monaco, which was conquered and held by the ruling Grimaldi family for more than 700 years.
L’Exotique Monaco: Developing a harmonious environment
Steps away from this elegant new Monaco development are the stunning 3-acre gardens of the Jardin Exotique, where a variety of succulents grow on the side of the cliff, and pathways lead to unobstructed views of the Bay of Monaco. Though the garden was started in 1933, many of the 1,000 species of cacti and succulents were brought in from Mexico in the 1800s.
Naturally, the botanical garden and the landscape gardening of L’Exotique Monaco itself are examples of the principality’s commitment to sustainability. The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation for decades has been dedicated to the protection of the environment, including marine habitats, and the promotion of sustainable development.
The world’s foremost luxury destination is known internationally for its green culture, including certified green luxury hotels and residences, urban gardens for organic produce, and, notably, its many lush gardens and parks – an ethos that the L’Exotique project has fully embraced.
