When most people think of the South of France they think of St Tropez, not the Col de la Bonette. Don’t miss out on this gorgeous drive around the Alps… if you take a wrong turn you might even end up in Italy!

Monte Carlo is well known for its casino and grandness, but it’s actually a place of great beauty too. The hotel de Paris is one of the most luxurious hotels in Monte Carlo, with 106 rooms that will cost you a small fortune to stay in! Plenty of films have used Monte Carlo as a back drop including 3 Bond movies, Iron Man 2, Cars 2, Madagascar 3 and a film called Monte Carlo (I hadn’t heard of it either..).

7. Know The Laws…

Know The Laws...
