Beausoleil enjoys excellent weather conditions and is known as the Montmartre of the Cote d’Azur thanks to its famous narrow streets and steps criss-crossing the entire area. The village also overlooks Monaco’s iconic skyline, filled with breathtaking skyscrapers and luxury villas. Being located just outside of Monaco, Beausoleil allows visitors to have the option of experiencing the lifestyle in Monaco and visit the beaches whilst not having to pay the high prices that come with staying there.
Surrounded by greenery, the Monte Coast view fits into its natural surroundings and is nestled in the heart of a park that descends the hill and is filled with local species, including cypress, palm and fruit trees. Beausoleil is also only a 40-minute drive from the Italian border, offering residents the option of crossing over and visiting parts of Italy for the day.
With Beausoleil being so close to Monaco, there are lots of interesting things to do. One of these activities is visiting the car collection of H.S.H, the Prince of Monaco, who is a car enthusiast and started collecting old cars at the end of the 1950s. If you are interested in the car collection, then if you timed your visit right you could go and watch the Monaco Grand Prix.
If you are less interested in cars and more so in some art, then you can visit the Musee Jean Cocteau Collection Severin Wunderman or Bastion Museum. The Musee Jean Cocteau is home to the artwork of Jean Cocteau and a high percentage of these were obtained by Severin Wunderman. The Bastion Museum was originally a seaside fort before it became a museum, where it is now also home to a lot of Jean Cocteau’s work, which can be seen through his books, journals and magazines.
The warmest month of the year is August, with an average temperature of 21.8 °C. January is the coldest month, with temperatures averaging 5.8 °C. On average there are 108.63 hours of sunshine per month.
Beausoleil's closest airport is Nice, and it's a 30 minute drive away.
