Larvotto is the easternmost Ward in the Principality of Monaco. Larvotto is southeast of Monte Carlo and La Rousse. It borders Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, France, to the northeast.

The Avenue Princesse Grace, named after Grace Kelly, is the most expensive street in the world. In other words, property along this street is on average worth $17,750 per square foot and each square metre £73,000. The avenue is located at Larvotto Beach, on the seafront.

Most of the land of the Larvotto district was purchased by Gildo Pastor in the aftermath of World War II. In 1966, Rainier III, Prince of Monaco allowed him to start building high-rise buildings. This led to the construction of dense apartment buildings and luxury hotels from the 1960s onwards. Some were built as recently as the 2000s.
