When the heat rolls in, a refreshing break can do wonders. Ice cream, sorbet, crisp vegetables, a cocktail or a sip of champagne, a shaded oasis, a view of the sea... Here are just a few simple pleasures to help keep you cool.
Idea# 1: chill out with all the ice cream and sorbet you desire
In celebration of summer, world ice cream champion Gérard Taurin has prepared exceptional ice creams and sorbets in a range of unique flavours. Enjoy the classics such as vanilla, chocolate, strawberry or even Menton lemon, blended with original creations like the Virgin Mojito with salted caramel. For a more intense burst of flavour, try the banana & pink sugared almond. Of course, these high-quality natural products are low in sugar, for a refreshing treat that won’t break your wellness kick. They may be ordered in advance and enjoyed on site at Café de Paris Monte-Carlo, Mada One, Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo or Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort. Or order yours to go, and indulge your taste buds as you take a stroll along the seaside. The choice is yours!
Idea# 2: sip on some juice or snack on some veggies
Summertime means colourful salads and light, refreshing dishes. You will love the Raw vegetable basket at the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo L’Hirondelle restaurant, or choose from an array of smoothies and fresh-squeezed juices at the Monte-Carlo Beach Club B&G Bar and Ice Cream Shop.A green menu inspired by a green establishment!
