The seaside resort town of Saint Tropez is still very popular with ordinary tourists, with the jet set and the in-crowd having long since left it behind. Imagine you sitting on your power yacht on the lovely blue water of the Bay of Saint-Tropez. This modern version of a medieval town is most popular for the view of power yachts along the quay, facing a line of terrace cafes, divided by a parade of strolling tourists and slow cruising expensive cars.
Behind the cafes, the small streets and old buildings are picturesque, and nowadays they are more popular for the multitude of shops and restaurants than any real historical significance. There are endless options for shopping for buying gifts or keepsakes of your power yacht adventure to remind you that "you've been here".
Monaco, an ancient principality steeped in a rich and colorful history, is considered by many to be Europe's most fascinating country. Though the country covers but one square mile, it stands as a proud monarchy with his Serene Highness Prince Rainier III as its head of state. Today people take their power yacht to Monaco and its glittering district Monte-Carlo not simply to vacation, not just to test their wits against lady luck, nor merely to see and be seen, but to revel in the memorable life-enhancing experience that is Monaco.
Monaco is also famous for its annual Monaco Grand Prix. If you need information on available luxury yachts for the Monaco Grand Prix or information about chartering a private motor yacht, kindly contact us
When Monte Carlo came into being it was almost called Charlesville or Albertville after the heir of Prince Charles III. The fact that neither of these names stuck in the end may have been due to Prince Charles not believing this new venture would last into his son's reign. On the other hand, he may have liked the sound of Monte Carlo (Mount Charles) as it rolls off the tongue better. Whatever the reason it was most assuredly an improvement on its old name, Splugues.
The Prince need not have worried because within three years of setting it up, the casino had earned enough money to ensure it's peoples' loyalty by abolishing direct taxation and military service! It is difficult to envision that in the middle of the nineteenth century Monaco was the poorest state in Europe. Nothing useful could grown on its rocky soil and it barely subsisted on selling salt and custom rights to France. Visit Monaco while on your power yacht vacation!
