Built in a beautiful neoclassical style, the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo offers a warm welcome that combines contemporary amenities with the understated charm of a Belle Epoque architectural gem. Over the years, every last detail of the hotel’s majestic structure has been taken into account to offer guests none other than the highest standards of intimate luxury and prestige.  

The spirit of a fabulous luxury hotel

The Hotel Hermitage has a unique history and savoir-faire, deftly combining respect for tradition and an innate appreciation for all things modern.

Overlooking the Mediterranean, the Hotel Hermitage is an ode to elegance at its zenith. Built at the beginning of the century, the historic legendary hotel distils an intimate and relaxed atmosphere where serenity reinvents itself with each sunrise.

Mediterranean gastronomy

At the one Michelin-starred restaurant Le Vistamar, Chef Benoit Witz elevates the authentic aromas of seafood in a rich bouquet of Mediterranean flavours.


It’s the best that the Riviera has to offer, with true emotion and heartfelt enjoyment.

The Banc de l’Ecailler (Seafood Counter) at the Café de Paris Tue, 04 Oct 2016 12:30:40 +0000 vovf From 7th October 2016 to 2nd April 2017, the Café de Paris offers its Seafood Counter with seafood and shellfish carefully prepared by an expert oyster shucker. 


Brittany oysters, fine fattened oysters, European flat oysters or hollow oysters from Brittany, Portuguese ‘Blue Coast’ oysters, periwinkles, whelks, (sea snails), common shrimps from the English channel, a fresh shrimp selection, Dublin Bay prawns, home-grown sea urchins, common clams, Venus clams, rock crabs and violet crabs are all available to tantalise your taste buds.


The “Café de Paris” tasting platter and the rich and varied “Café de Paris Special” seafood platters are waiting to be discovered on the Café de Paris menu.


Seafood fans who wish to share these delicacies with family and friends will also be able to buy them to take away.


Our shuckers prepare this seafood with perfect dexterity and the utmost care every day to the delight and satisfaction of clients. The speed with which the shellfish is shucked is less important than the quality and the freshness of the products. Joël de Pretto will serve you shellfish free of any scales in order to fully enjoy them.


And if you’re dreaming of pearls, remember that they nestle inside oysters, so this dream could quite possibly become a reality!

All chefs who participated in the 2016 yule log contest brilliantly demonstrated their talent and expertise. Festive, magical and elaborate, the creations were

Cédric Desideri, Pastry Chef at the restaurant L’Hirondelle at Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo, was inspired by childhood strolls in the forest in his creation. Like an invitation to an exceptional bucolic journey, the yule log cake is made of mandarin orange and a light chestnut mousse on a flaky praline pine nut biscuit.


His creation will be featured on Société des Bains de Mer menus and available in restaurants with verbena ice cream or for take-away.

A celebration of Léon Bakst at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco Fri, 16 Sep 2016 14:46:50 +0000 francoisblanc Villa Sauber is presenting the exhibition Designing Dreams to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of the iconic Ballets Russes costume and set designer.



A celebration of Léon Bakst at the Nouveau Musée National de MonacoThe two-site Nouveau Musée National de Monaco (NMNM) is turning the spotlight on dance this autumn. While Villa Paloma is exploring choreography and its movements, Villa Sauber is showcasing the world imagined by Léon Bakst, one of the greatest modern set designers. Born in 1866, he created designs for the Ballets Russes in the 1910s that contributed to the company’s global success.

Sourced from the collections of the NNMM, permanent loans from the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, and many international loans, 150 drawings, models and costumes have been brought together for the exhibition, immersing visitors, from one room to the next, in the ballets Schéhérazade, Le Spectre de la Rose, L’Après-midi d’un faune and Daphnis et Chloé.


Decor of rich, patterned fabrics

“The thread of the project is the idea of the dream. In Le Spectre de la Rose, a girl dozing after a ball dreams of  he male spirit of a rose.

Similarly, in L’Après-midi d’un faune, choreographed by Vaslav Nijinsky,the dancer interacts with nymphs in an erotic, dream-like setting,” says Célia Bernasconi, co-curator with Professor John E. Bowlt, who has already collaborated with the museum for the Ballets Russes centenary.

The NMNM has commissioned visual artist and choreographer Nick Mauss to design the exhibition decor in Villa Sauber. He has created monumental wall paintings inspired by printed fabrics designed by Bakst, giving the Russian designer’s work a contemporary twist.


From decorative arts to fashion

Drawing on references from the ancient cultures of Greece, Persia and Siam as well as Russian folk art, Bakst created a synthesis between the Eastern arts and Art Nouveau. Informed by archival material from the era, the exhibition is punctuated with works by artists such as Jean Cocteau, Valentine Hugo and George Barbier, who contributed to the promotion of Léon Bakst’s decorative art. “As the exhibition places particular emphasis on textile design, we decided it should end with a room devoted to fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent,” continues Célia Bernasconi. The show closes with a display of accessorised models by the designer, as well as presentation boards of the Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche 1991 collection, which was directly inspired by the scenery and costumes of Schéhérazade.

The Route du Goût 2016 Wed, 14 Sep 2016 08:07:43 +0000 francoisblanc Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer is involved in the 2nd edition of this major Organic Festival

A spotlight on organic

The latest instalment of the Route du Goût will take place on 12 to 16 October 2016. Founded by Paolo Sari, chef at the Monte-Carlo Beach and founding member of the association Bio Chef Global Spirit, the Organic Festival aims at raising widespread awareness about preserving the environment and the natural wealth of our region. An organic market on Quai Antoine 1er, a tennis competition for youngsters at the Monte-Carlo Country Club, an invention competition and a culinary regatta along the legendary Riva are just some of the events that will delight young and old alike for 5 days.


Chefs from the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer and the region are getting involved in the event

The highlight of the event: Two Organic Gala Dinners.

For the “Gala de la Route du Goût” on 13 October, Chef Paolo Sari is inviting Jean-André Charial, two-starred Michelin Chef of l’Oustau de Baumanière restaurant, to take part in a session of organic haute cuisine for this dinner prepared by four hands. Students from the Lycée Hôtelier de Monaco will provide culinary support and service.

On 14 October, 10 children from 8 to 12 years of age will support 10 Chefs from the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer in preparing the Gala dinner. From 19.30, the Chef/Child duos will present their creations on stalls at the Flavours Market, the “Marché des Saveurs”.


A humanitarian project

Although this initiative arose from ecological awareness, its main objective is humanitarian. The funds raised during the evening and culinary events are intended for a charity project supported by Bio Chef Global Spirit. In partnership with the OSO Foundation, the association is working to fund and build an organic hospitality school in Madagascar.

In addition, through the Moses.Bio® and Orto® projects (organic vegetable garden) the association will provide the technical and financial support needed to develop ecological practices and organic agriculture in the region.

Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival 2016 Mon, 12 Sep 2016 14:15:50 +0000 francoisblanc From November 24th through to December 3rd, the 11th edition of the Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival will take place at the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo!



2016 is the year of the 11th edition of the Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival at the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo.


Since its creation 10 years ago in 2006, the festival has enjoyed the High Patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco whom we would like to thank for the interest he has always shown.


The Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival 2016 will be held from November 24th through to December 3rd and will introduce us to, or possibly reacquaint us with, the biggest jazz stars as well as today’s fresh talents in this wonderful setting, a temple of music and art for over one hundred years.


Faithful to itself, the festival reflects jazz music as it is today: open to all musical trends but always giving way to tradition, never static and taking inspiration from all the world’s music, paying particular attention to artistic creation. 


Throughout this year’s event we will encounter the greatest musicians of our time, the most beautiful voices in contemporary jazz and some great soloists.


The 2016 programme reflects these 10 years of Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival. It shows that jazz is still as freedom loving and diverse, with no limitations.


We will be previewing, in an outstanding Monte-Carlo residence, Lambert Wilson, who will pay tribute to Yves Montand in a jazz spirit.


On Sunday November 27th at 6 pm, Angélique Kidjo, the great voice of today’s Africa, will present her show “Eve”.


From Tuesday November 29th to Saturday December 3rd we will be hosting a concert every evening featuring the biggest jazz players of today including Manu Katché, Richard Bona and Ibrahim Maalouf. We will equally be paying tribute to two jazz legends as we will be welcoming Al Jarreau, accompanied by the NDR Bigband, and Wayne Shorter with his quartet. As always, the Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival is also the way to find out about the jazz of tomorrow, with trumpeter Airelle Besson, Sarah Lancman, the Malia / André Manoukian duo and the Alune Wade and Harold López-Nussa quartet around their “Havana-Paris-Dakar” project. Finally, we will be dedicating a special evening to Robert Charlebois who will be celebrating 50 years of song at the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo. Madeleine Peyroux will be sharing the billing with a presentation of her new album “Secular Hymns”.


For this 10th year, the festival will spread into the Casinos and several establishments of Société des Bains de Mer with the Funk Off fanfare, Mike Sanchez and a lot of other artists to be discovered at the event.


Have a good festival and long live jazz!
