If you want the safest get­away city for you and your girls in the South of France, Monte Carlo is the an­swer. The prin­ci­pal­ity of Monaco is tiny – it is roughly the size of Cen­tral Park, and is full of twists, turns and one-way streets. Be­yond be­ing one of the most sought-af­ter res­i­den­tial ad­dresses on the globe, it is also known to have more po­lice, per capita, than any­where else in the world. Ac­cord­ing to Wikipedia, there are 515 po­lice of­fi­cers for the 35,000 peo­ple who live in the area.

Monaco is also one of the most ex­pen­sive des­ti­na­tions, but it is not im­pos­si­ble to en­joy Monaco on a tighter bud­get, and can be even more eco­nom­i­cal dur­ing cer­tain times of the year. There is sim­ply not a “bad” time to visit Monaco, and since Jan­uary tends to be a slow month, with the ex­cep­tion of the In­ter­na­tional Cir­cus Fes­ti­val, trav­el­ers can take ad­van­tage of the greatly re­duced ho­tel prices. As you might imag­ine, it is an up­scale shop­pers par­adise. But for those with a tighter bud­get, plenty of re­tail ther­apy can be ac­com­plished at unique bou­tiques where you can shop along­side the lo­cals. There is a plethora of chic and unique bars and lounges to ex­pe­ri­ence on hol­i­day. Jimmy’z [26 Av­enue Princesse Grace | 98000 | Monaco ] is the be-all and end-all of night­club ex­pe­ri­ences in Monte Carlo. If you need to burn off some of those calo­ries, you can dance the night away on the dance floor, be­neath the VIP sec­tion of the pri­vate Boom Boom Room where celebrities are known to con­gre­gate well into the night. An­other hotspot for some fun with your friends is Le Sea Lounge [40 Av­enue Princesse Grace | 98000 | Monaco ]. This is a dy­namic beach­side hotspot, but be pre­pared to be sprayed with cham­pagne when the ac­tion heats up, since some reverie seek­ers have been known to let the cork rip into the crowd.

Pho­tog­ra­phy Cour­tesy Ho­tel Metropole The Côte d’Azur is so much more than I can pos­si­bly de­scribe in one ar­ti­cle, but I hope that you can ap­pre­ci­ate that no mat­ter what type of get­away with the girls you might be look­ing to sched­ule, you can find it in the South of France. It is a girl’s pre­rog­a­tive to not be forced to choose be­tween th­ese op­tions, so why not visit each of th­ese des­ti­na­tions and see for yourself what kind of get­away is per­fectly de­signed for you and your travel com­pan­ions.
