Glide into the sparkling waters of a luxury yacht charter in Monaco and step ashore to soak up the party atmosphere. It’s the epitome of glamor and one of the most exclusive capitals in the world. With a long history of glitz and glamor, Monte Carlo has been a magnet for the rich and famous for centuries. Offering gastronomic delights, iconic nightlife and designer boutiques, it is a mecca of luxury. It may be one of the smallest countries in the world, but it manages to pack in everything you could wish for and more.
Situated on one of the world’s most coveted stretches of coastline, the Principality of Monaco reigns supreme on any yacht charter itinerary. Its prime location between the French Riviera and Italy gives it star appeal attracting the yachting crowd to its elegant shores.
The famed Monaco Grand Prix in May signals the start of the outstanding summer season, with yachts arriving from far and wide. A luxury yacht charter during the annual Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix is one of the most coveted reservations in the world. You will have the best seats in the house, taking in the exciting and exhilarating race right from the deck of your luxury charter yacht. Yachts book up fast for the Monaco Grand Prix, so we recommend reserving your yacht up to a year in advance.
The principal neighborhood of Monte-Carlo overlooks the sparkling Port Hercules. Here you will find the iconic Casino de Monte Carlo surrounded by luxury hotels. Even if you don’t want a flutter, the famed casino is well worth visiting. Order a martini at the bar and admire the Belle Epoque building with its many chandeliers and frescoes. Next door, the gilded Hôtel de Paris houses Alain Ducasse’ Michelin-starred Le Louis XV. Alternatively, the late Joël Robuchon’s eponymous restaurant is just a short stroll away at the equally elegant Hôtel Métropole.
This city is also well-known for partying, whether aboard your superyacht or in the town at venues such as Sass Cafe, Twiga or Jimmy’z nightclub. For those who love to shop, Monaco is a dream with its collection of designer boutiques housed along with Monaco’s Avenue de Monte-Carlo, Avenue des Beaux-Arts and the Allées Lumières center. From Piaget to YSL and all the other LVMH brands, among many others, there is no bona fide international designer without a boutique in the Principality.
For those looking for a bit of pampering on charter, two spas rule the well-being scene in Monte Carlo. The Spa Metropole by Givenchy at the Metropole Monte Carlo is a stylish urban oasis set back from the bustling Casino Square. Alternatively, the Thérmes Marins Monte Carlo boasts a vast menu of thalassotherapy experiences. For those wanting to stretch their sea legs, Monaco has something to offer all fitness capabilities.
