CURATING LUXURY FOR THE DISCERNING TRAVELLER

YACHT TO TROT

YACHT TO TROT

Monaco may be synonymous with Hollywood glamour and high-octane F1 action, but the boats will always draw the crowds. While there is no shortage of global yacht spots, the leviathan that is Port Hercules is a timeless classic, able to house yachts from four metres to 130 metres long, and it is also home to the annual Monaco Yacht Show in late September. This natural bay is one of the few deep-water ports in the French Riviera, with the seawall providing protection from the swells of the eastern sector. Everything here is carefully considered, including security from a port watchman to a 24-hour monitored VHF Channel 12. Amenities include fresh water, electricity, 20 showers, fuel and telephones.

Casino de Monte-Carlo
Set behind the Allée-des-Boulingrins Gardens, this Belle Époque venue is the stuff of dreams and movies. The casino houses various gaming rooms where roulette, black jack, craps and Ultimate Texas Hold’em can all be enjoyed. The casino’s private rooms – the Salle Touzet Nord & Sud and the Salons Super Privés – are where the high rollers should head, while gourmet dining comes in the shape of the Orient-Express-inspired Le Train Bleu, or Le Salon Rose brasserie, with its Mediterranean cuisine and sea views.
