A tiny principality located on the temperate Mediterranean coastline bordering the south of France, Monaco has long had a reputation as a playground of the rich and famous. It certainly exudes high-end glamour, with luxurious hotels, exotic boutiques and glitzy Casinos dominating the Monte Carlo region, but it also offers more modest pleasures and is by no means inaccessible to expats who don't number among the super-rich. With extremely generous tax laws and a thriving tourist industry, it attracts many expats looking to set up business operations with excellent travel links to key industry hotspots in France, Italy and beyond. Monaco is also one of the safest destinations in Europe, with a famously efficient police force and some of the lowest crime rates on the continent. If glorious weather, picturesque surroundings and a thriving continental atmosphere appeal to you, you'll find much to enjoy in Monaco.
