When in Monte Carlo
A symbol of the timeless luxury of the principality of Monaco, the Hermitage was built in 1890, thanks to the genius of architects Nicolas Marquet and a certain Gustav Eiffel – a few years after his eponymous tower first horrified the people of Paris. This week we recommend booking for the famed Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival in November.
Jazz aside, we recommend a fairly casual itinerary, involving a stay in one of the Diamond suites – go for the duplex with Jacuzzi if available – a meal at the Michelin-starred fish restaurant Le Vistamar (while taking in the panoramic views of the harbour and rock), before relaxing in the stunning setting of the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo spa. With over 15 years of dealing with the most demanding clients, you’re in safe hands.
