Monte Carlo Beach Hotel - 2

You've seen this hotel before but only from a far greater distance. On the promontory in the background is the Restaurant La Vigie - a divine place to sip a glass of champagne before dining with the lights of Monte Carlo before you. This hotel on the eastern edge of Monaco, on land, so far as I know, leased from France. On the hillside above La Vigie - and hidden in the trees - are summer huts that can be rented for the season. I have friends who years ago used to rent one of these and spent lazy days meeting up with friends and their children and lunching on the beach. What a life!

The empty pool you saw yesterday is just out of shot to the left.

It reminds me of Switzerland. No I don't know why either.

If I could, I would not only rent a villa, I'd buy a villa and live there all year round! :-D

A very pretty hotel and no doubt very expensive, so close to the water. I guess that the restaurant La Vigie is expensive too with such a wonderful view. Gorgeous, beautifully framed photo, Jilly.
