Larvotto beach resort gets a makeover
6 August 2021
Larvotto through history
According to several sources, the “boulevard du Larvotto” was built in the early 1960s, replacing the railway track. In order to solve the lack of space and compensate for the lack of bathing landscape, projects to extend the country on the sea are multiplying. Indeed, Prince Rainier III undertakes to build several platforms in order to develop and urbanize the Monegasque territory. The Larvotto beach that we know today results from a 54,000m² extension completed in 1963.
Anse du Portier : 6 new hectares for Larvotto
After the Portier, Larvotto and Fontvieille extensions, a new project was initiated under the reign of Prince Albert II. In July 2018, in keeping with the paternal work, Prince Albert II announced an ambitious operation to extend the territory. Indeed, a 6-hectare eco-district will increase the surface of the Principality from 2025.
Makeover of the beach area, vast and elegant
In continuity with the offshore urban extension project, Prince Albert II decides, in 2019, to undertake the complete renovation of the Larvotto. The aim of the project is to make the beach and its surroundings more attractive, pleasant, accessible and user-friendly. This mission was entrusted to the famous Italian architect, Renzo Piano. He also played a major role in the creation of the “Anse du Portier”.
On Saturday 3 July 2021, H.S.H Prince Albert II officially inaugurates this new seaside resort, under construction for the last 22 months. The 14,000m² of the new Larvotto include, among other things, a larger public beach, a new promenade and enlarged commercial areas. In addition to restaurants and private beaches, this complex by the sea now offers a nursery and a Handiplage site, dedicated to person with reduced mobility and disabilities.
However, it will take until 2022 for the work to be fully completed.
