“The best place to play tennis in Monaco is, without a doubt, the Monte Carlo Country Club. It is probably one of the best tennis clubs, if not the best, in the world. Not to mention they have the best Sunday brunch in town.”

“If you want to go in [the direction of] high-end designer brands, you should head to the Monte-Carlo Pavillions, right next to the casino. I recently bought a nice Dior sweater from there!”

“This multipurpose club is another great spot to both work out and recharge; it’s my favorite breakfast spot, and offers healthy and recharging meals [served by a Gordon Ramsay apprentice] for after you’ve used all the equipment, including an altitude room and cardio wall.”

“You need to take any chance you can get to take in the ocean views—Monaco has some of the best in the world, in my opinion. They’re not hard to find around town—the Monte Carlo Country Club is right on the water—but for the best views, you have to go up in the mountains outside town. It’s a three-hour walk to a lookout spot called ‘Tour de la Tête de Chien’ [which means ‘dog’s head trail’ in French]. You can see all of Monaco and the whole of Côte d’Azur.”
