Monte-Carlo.  Scene of international intrigue and mystery... From Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again to Golden Eye, this Mediterranean jewel has been the cinematic backdrop for glamorous parties, sophisticated games of chance, and exciting adventures, but, this time, this voyage is for you and your girlfriends to bond together and take the Riviera by storm!
 
CATCH UP with your girlfriends at the Hotel Hermitage in the heart of Monte-Carlo, a Palace hotel that has beautifully preserved the atmosphere of the Belle Époque, a golden age of French architecture, painting, music, and fashion at the turn of the 19th century.  The Belle Époque is stunningly reflected in the hotel's Winter Garden, whose fabulous cupola of glass and steel was created by the man who designed the Eiffel Tower in Paris.  The grand functions room, La Salle Belle Époque, with its pink marble columns and crystal chandeliers also takes us back to that glorious era.  From the Hermitage's corbelled fašade and delicate frescoes, to the inviting bedrooms, so light and airy, decorated in rich colours and bold feminine prints, to the personalized service that one would have experienced there at the end of the 19th century, the Hotel Hermitage is a warm, cozy, intimate setting from which to discover Monte-Carlo and the surrounding countryside of Monaco.  Spend three (or more) wonderful nights with your girlfriends in a charming, deluxe, double room with a garden or city view, enjoying a delicious meal or fruity cocktail at Le Vistamar, the hotel's restaurant, whose terrace offers a stunning view of the harbour, or participating in some tennis, squash, golf, or water sports at the hotel's modern facilities.
 
RELISH the thrill at the roulette wheel or gaming tables in Monte-Carlo's Casino, an extraordinary piece of architecture designed in 1893 by Charles Garnier who also built the famous Paris Opera House.  Watch with bated breath as the wheel spins - will it land on your square?  Enjoy the casino's glamour and elegance - the rooms decorated with frescoes, bas-reliefs, and classical sculptures, spanned by an impressive gold and marble atrium.
 
TAKE ADVANTAGE of your Carte D'or that you receive upon arrival, which entitles you to free access to the Casino de Monte-Carlo and to the shuttles for transportation within the resort, fifty per cent discount on fees at the Monte-Carlo Golf Club and at the Monte-Carlo Country Club, complimentary entrance to the Monte-Carlo Beach Club (which boasts a heated, seawater, Olympic-size swimming pool and private beach with your own sun lounger and towel), and to the Aqua-fitness complex at the seawater spa in Les Thermes Marins, with its large, heated, seawater pool, Turkish bath, sauna, and cardio training centre.  Indulge in a few hours' relaxation at this chic, luxury spa with discreet staff, and enjoy a revitalizing Turkish bath or calming sauna in an old-world glamorous setting, its terrace overlooking the main port with row upon row of glistening yachts bobbing in the harbour.
 
TOUR the Riviera in style for one complete day's sightseeing in a private luxury van with a multilingual driver who will share with you all the latest hot gossip and show you all the in places that are hard for the uninitiated to discover on their own.  Explore the Alpes-Maritimes of the Southern Alps, the majestic mountains' craggy coastline ending right at the lapping waters of the azure-blue Mediterranean sea; breathe in the aroma of the pines and absorb the serenity of the landscape's swaying palm trees.
 
FLIT into the inviting boutiques of prestigious designers such as Hermès, Valentino, Gucci, or Lalique in the Golden Circle or, in the Metropole Gallery, see what is on offer by Swarovski, Kenzo, Christien Lacroix, and Pomelleto, or explore the enchanting French Medieval villages in the surrounding region or the history of the city itself by visiting the imposing Prince's Palace built in 1215 by a well-to-do Genoan family.  With numerous museums, major exhibitions, and delightful restaurants, Monte-Carlo is a city vibrant with culture and creativity.  Enjoying over 300 days of sunshine and mild temperatures, Monte-Carlo is the perfect spot to enjoy the Riviera's gorgeous beaches, or, if travelling in the winter months, ski at the resorts just an hour away from the city.  For more high-octane fare, there is the adrenaline-pumping Formula One Grand Prix, Monte-Carlo's passionate nightlife, or a more refined gala event.  An emerald set within the majestic Alps, Monte-Carlo celebrates life in all its glory.
