Fontvieille is a very pleasant residential area located on the South West of the Principality. Down the Rocher, the construction of this “new district” started in the 60’s.

 

The Construction of Fontvieille

The Prince Rainier III, also known as the “Prince Builder” thinks big and launches the erection of a huge paving stone of approx. 33 hectares where modern residences will sit. So Fontvieille Village emerges around a lovely little harbor. Little by little, restaurants and show-rooms settle along the quays. In a lovely landscaped park, the Princess Grace Roses Garden is unveiled.

The new Stadium Louis II opens in 1985. On the other side of the area are offices, factories and later, the Shopping Center with lots of boutiques. In Fontvieille is also the Helipad to reach Nice Airport in 7 minutes and Saint Tropez in less than 25 minutes.
