Introducing

Luxury Without Snobbery

Luxury and pretentiousness are like gin and tonic, often found together, yet very different.

Côte d'Azur - Deux
The French Riviera 2

September 6th to 14th 2022

Luxury is subjective.
True luxury is not about putting on airs or showing off.
For some people it is the acquisition of beautiful things.
For entrepreneur and mothers, it is having the opportunity to
step away from their demanding lives and have a trusted
resource plan and execute their "me" time is a luxury.
For those that are highly motivated toward achievement,
uniqueness and exclusivity are rewards for hard work.

For the women of The Globalux Society, luxury is part of everyday life.

They seek travel experiences that match their daily lifestyle. 

The Côte d'Azur, synonymous with wealth and luxury. The  millionaires’ playground is nestled between a breathtaking rocky coastline and the shimmering sea that nips at the waterlines filled with whitewashed yachts.

 

In Monaco it does not take much effort  to bump into a millionaire. There are 12,000of them in less than one square mile.  It is also home to a few billionaires, like Stefano Pessina, with a net worth of 11.2 billion and Lily Safra, who attained a considerable amount of her 1.3 billion through her four marriages.  A woman that obliviously knows how to marry well and divorce better! Her last husband, multi-billionaire banker Edmond J. Safra, died in 2020 under mysterious circumstances.

St. Tropez's beaches with sparkling sands are the go-to spot for chic jet setters. It is one of the most expensive destinations in France, and most who visit are wealthy. During the spring to late fall, most yacht owners that love the Mediterranean, at some point moor their boat at the St. Tropez port.

Nice, the second-largest city of France and the largest on the Côte d'Azur is considered a cultural capital, with its small and winding streets lined with cafes with the nostalgic feel of French paintings and postcards. Nice really is the most dynamic city in the region.

 

Monte Carlo needs no introduction! Get lucky, by channeling your inner Bond Girl at Casino de Monte-Carlo, walk like royalty in the old town of Monaco atop "Le Rocher" (the Rock), the location of the Prince's Palace, official residence of the Prince and Princess of Monaco. Cannes, the home of the world-famous Cannes film festival, the biggest film festival in the world, oozes glamour and glitz with fashion boutique, fine dining restaurant, and VIP night life.

There is just something about this place that Matisse once called it France’s “little nook of paradise." Maybe it’s the breathtaking bouganvillea-laced coastal town. Maybe it’s the immaculately stylish jet-set crowd. Maybe it’s the rhythm of the village that balance casual chic with ultimate elegance. Maybe it’s that everything about Saint Tropez seems to epitomize indulgence in the best way.

In France, a great glass of wine is a must. The vineyards in St. Tropez are unique in the fact that they border the Mediterranean sea, which gives the wine a distinctive flavor. This region is famous for its rosé wine although there are also excellent reds and whites! During a special private journey in countryside, the tasting with the winery's sommelier will include the history of the winery and all the secrets of the production techniques that create the unmistakable characteristics of the best local wines.  Later, as the boats start docking at the port for the long weekend of activities, you will mix and mingle into the night.

Nice, the largest city on the Côte d'Azur and the 5th largest in France, has attracted artists and aristocrats throughout the centuries.  The city itself is an attraction with its famous belle époque architecture and intense, steel-blue Mediterranean Sea. It has three faces: the stretch along the Promenade des Anglais; Old Nice, with its medieval lanes and alleys; the Nice where locals live, work, and play; along with downtown Nice, that has undergone a major facelift and looks younger (modern) than ever while maintaining its classic elegance.  After check-in, you will have a walking tour that will include the Castle Hill and Promenade des Anglais.

 

Day 7 - September 12th: Nice  - Sailing

No luxury tour of the Côte d'Azur is complete without sailing the intensely blue sea which gives the Côte d’Azur its name.  Relax sunbathing on deck or take a swim during one of the stops. French culture is very open and no one will bat an eye if you take off your bikini top. Yep, you can free the girls for an even rich tan.

Just the name Monte Carlo conjures visions of a wealth. Monte Carlo, surrounded by France and the Maritime Alps has 300 days a year of sunshine. This stunning cliff-side Mediterranean port is a timeless playground for owners of superyachts that are big as mansions. These are some of the reasons that every other James Bond movie has a scene in Monte Carlo.
