Some people believe football is a matter of life and death ... I can assure you it is much, much more important than that. (1)

It's good to be back after our summer break and we're looking forward to what Monaco has to offer in the coming months. Schools reopen next week, but if you're already thinking about your next holiday, our listing may help you plan.

Eating out

While we were away Monaco Restaurant Group opened Giro Pizza in Fontvieille, and Monaco Matin featured three places you can buy home-made ice-cream: Casa del Caffe, Atelier du Glacier, and Graziella.

As part of its La Vita Monte-Carlo promotion, SBM is opening up unusual venues for private dining. From 10 September to 10 November you can book a bespoke dinner on the private terrace of Monte Carlo Casino, in the wine cellar of Hotel de Paris or in a chalet at Monte Carlo Beach. Prices start from 550 euros pp and need to be booked 72 hours in advance. Phone +377 98 06 65 06 or email Protocole[at]


Last season we cheered for Monaco Roca basketball team, and this year we'll be following two more sports. In table tennis last week, Monaco player Xiaoxin Yang won the Czech International Open and is now classed 34th in the world. And in rugby, Monaco Rugby Sevens has qualified for the final phase of the French In Extenso Supersevens championship on 11 November in Paris.

If you're a swimmer, note that Saint-Charles swimming pool reopens 6 September and Stade Nautique hours are now 9:00-18:00.


CREM foreign residents' club is organizing a members-only lunch tomorrow at 12:30 at La Pinede on the Cap d'Ail coastal path. The clubhouse in Monaco is open again and welcomes members 9:00 to 21:00. You'll need your health pass to get in.

On 16 September the British Association and Princess Grace Irish Library are organizing an outing to Eileen Gray's e-1027 house on Cap Martin. The price is 25 euros pp and includes a guided tour followed by an aperitif. Participants must organize their own transport.

If you're heading to the beach note that in Nice Matin's recent Battle of the Beaches, Plage Larvotto was knocked out by La Paloma, St Jean Cap Ferrat. The overall winner was La Pointe de l'Aiguille, Theoule sur Mer, closely followed by our Cap d'Ail neighour, Plage Mala.


Avoid Place des Moulins at 14:00 on Saturday when an anti-health-pass march is taking place. Demonstrators should be wearing masks tho', as they remain obligatory in Monaco as well as in high-density areas of the Alpes-Maritimes until 15 September. Those returning for the Rentree can reserve a free PCR test by phoning the Covid 19 call centre on +377 92 05 55 00.

And finally...

We were sad to hear of the death of Kate Powers, co-founder of Stars n Bars. A memorial service is being organized for those who knew her and would like to say "goodbye". Her family suggest making a donation to the Prince Albert II Foundation rather than buying flowers.

What's in the diary...

Thursday: Reminiscence.
Friday: Liberation of Monaco.
Saturday: Women's boules.
Sunday:  Free Guy.
