The Roquebrune Cap Martin penthouse is located in a new development called Villa Cap Martin. The top floor apartment is a little gem, carefully decorated and maintained by the owners, who are professional interior designers. The penthouse is situated on the best spot of the building, to guarantee the best sunrise and sunset. From the terrace you enjoy a view of 180 degrees over the mediterrennean sea. That sea view is your perfect partner for lovely dinners or sleepy waking up breakfast.

Inside the high standard occupied residence you can enjoy the swimming pool. With this penthouse in Roquebrune Cap Martin comes a double garage that is included in the price. There is one bedroom and a kitchen that has everything you need like a Quooker, a boiling-water tap. The penthouse is not large, but it feels spacious, bright and sunny. Imagine this small penthouse to be yours in Roquebrune Cap Martin village; a romantic medieval village located between Monaco and Menton. Your new second home town on the Côte d’Azur is picturesque with narrow streets, stepped-streets, stone steps, one-person-wide walkways and deep vaulted passages.

The old village of Roquebrune is dominated by the 10th-century chateau-fort that seems to grow massively from the rocks. There are lovely little squares and fountains here and there, wrought-iron balconies and other charming discoveries. Roquebrune-Cap-Martin is both a tourist town and a residential town.

The 18th-century Ste-Marguerite church is restored with lovely Provencal ocres and ambers, with the patterned tile steps and wrought-iron railings in front. Check the statue over the marble doorway carefully: its shadow is a painted trompe-l’oeil, giving a feeling of light to this perpetually shady little corner.

Follow one of the paved paths down the hill east of the village center (to about where photo 2 was taken) and you pass one of the oldest known olive trees in the region, the over 1000-year-old millenaire tree. Further down a railway station can be found at Cap-Martin, on the seaside below the old village. It is part of the main Nice-Monaco-Italy line, with frequent year-round service.

More about this area
Cap-Martin, within the commune of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, is a beautiful wooded peninsula on the Mediterranean, just below the perched Roquebrune village. The train station is down here, along with the beach, some campsites and shops. The peninsula itself is largely covered with very expensive walled estates, some dating back to the 19th century and the Belle Epoque.

History of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin

The Grotte du Repaire (grotto) contained a collective Bronze-age burial tomb. At the rocky edge of the sea, in Cap Martin, important prehistoric animal bones and paleolithic remains have been discovered. During the Gallo-Roman period, some Roman milestones and inscriptions have been discovered here.

Roquebrune was ruled in the 13th century by the lords of Vintimillia, and was disputed between the Count of Genoa and the Counts of Provence. In the 14th century, Charles Grimaldi obtained control for the Count of Genoa, then declared possession directly for the Grimaldis. Although the Duchy of Savoy had sovereign authority of the region from 1448, Roquebrune remained with the Grimaldis for the next five centuries. In 1848, Roquebrune was declared an independent town, no longer ruled by the Principality of Monaco or Menton. In 1860, Roquebrune was attached to France. It has not lost a thing from it’s original elite powered atmoshpere.
