Villa Mont Charles, Monaco

About three miles from the charm and glamour of Monte Carlo, the six-bedroom villa is nestled into the hills of Cap d’Ai, offering views of Cap Ferrat peninsula and the Mediterranean Sea. Guests will be pampered with everything from breakfast served on the terrace to sunset cocktails as the sun falls over the Mediterranean. The living areas are bright and modern, with direct access to the terrace, a heated infinity pool and landscaped lawns. For evenings in, spend the night in the private cinema. For a night out on the town, check out the famous Casino de Monte Carlo before hitting some of the most exclusive nightclubs on the Riviera.

La Casella, Cote d’Azur

Once home to the former Colefax & Fowler Chairman Tom Parr, La Casella is a neoclassical pavilion with one of the most stunning gardens in the region. The drawing room bathes in sunlight, opening onto a terrace, the perfect place for some pre-dinner drinks. After drinks, guests can walk along the myriad pathways marked by scented roses and fragrant lavender before enjoying dinner under the wisteria-draped pergola.
