The Monaco Grand Prix is the jewel in the Triple Crown of motorsport. Spectators are treated to four days of high-octane racing unfolding across the sun-kissed streets of May-time Monte Carlo – and A&K can place you in pole position to enjoy it all.
Considered the one to win by the likes of Sir Lewis Hamilton, the Monaco Grand Prix was established in 1929 with Prince Louis II’s royal seal of approval. Since then, racing stars have battled it out across the infamously narrow roads and tight turns of the Circuit de Monaco to reach the chequered flag. Ayrton Senna won a record-breaking six times, whilst Schumacher and Graham Hill – ‘Mr Monaco’ himself – occupy joint second place on the all-time list with five wins each. It remains the most coveted conquest in the racing calendar, all played out in a setting proclaimed by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile as one of “exceptional glamour and prestige”.
What better excuse for a city break, then? Attending the Monaco Grand Prix with A&K promises more than your usual sojourn, however: we guarantee another echelon of luxury and access.
Your bespoke Monaco Grand Prix experience could begin well in advance of the event, with the perfect mood setter. Slide behind the wheel of a supercar of your choosing for a self-drive tour of the Côte d'Azur. Travelling at your own pace in your high-performance vehicle, meander along dramatic balcony roads à la Bond, and cruise over Provençal hills passing pretty fields of lavender. We can help you plan the best routes, and arrange superlative accommodation and leisure experiences along the way – such as a spot of golf or spa therapy.
Next, board a superyacht for a tête-à-tête with a former racing driver, followed by a chance to test your skills behind the wheel of a genuine Formula One car during a private track day. You gain a whole new appreciation for the talent and mettle of the drivers you’ll soon see in action.
Then it’s across the border into the principality of Monaco, arriving in style via a privately chartered helicopter. Your enviable base for the next three days is a luxury yacht. Board in time for an exclusive cocktail party, and get acquainted with its Grand Prix viewing platform – the perfect vantage point to spectate the racetrack. You can choose to spend your nights in one of the vessel’s resplendent cabins, or onshore at a five-star hotel in Monaco or nearby Nice.
On race day, you enjoy some of the best seats – and service – in town. As you watch the Formula One cars snarl their way around Circuit de Monaco, you’ll want for nothing. On board, there is an open champagne and cocktail bar, so you can toast every successful rounding of the Rascasse hairpin. There is premium catering, so the only things you’ll hear growling are the car engines. That’s not to mention the live music and entertainment: the Rosso-corsa-red cherry on the cake.
It’s almost the perfect finish, but after all that race-week excitement, a little pit stop in the south of France seems only right and proper. Why not select from our range of gorgeous private villas for an idyllic comedown retreat? A&K’s collection extends from the white sands of Corsica to the hills of Provence.
