The Palace is his official residence.
Roc Agel is his private country home.
But Roc Agel is not far from Monaco, so he can frequently go there for some peace and quiet if he wants to.

It's close to La Turbie, and on French territory.
Dante Alighieri quoted Turbia in his Divine Comedy...

I am no expert at all on the Princely Family of Monaco but I do know about the residence at Roc Agel and I also know that Prince Rainier and Princess Grace certainly had a large and 'fitting' house in Paris as well. I do not know whether this remains in Grimaldi hands now, so perhaps an expert can assist?

I don't think Marchais is his Parisian residence. It's about 135 km / 84 miles (east) from Paris.

Grace and Rainier had a townhouse on the Square de l' Avenue Foch (info from the book of Christian de Massy). But I don't know if the Grimaldi's still have it. I think I read it has been sold.

I guess Albert has an appartment in Paris or stays in a hotel when he's there.

Renata said near Paris. He did have an apartment in Paris where Nicole lived.

There is a thread about Marchais...
Marchais Estate

It's about an hour from Paris, in Picardie, in the Dept. Aisne.

Have the renovations on the Palais Princier been completed? Are Albert & Charlene living there now, or still commuting from Roc Agel to the Palais for work and official functions only?

Oh my, this is so sad! Why would he not want to live where his babies are? I had not heard this before, I suppose I did assume he lived at the Palace and keeps an office there.

Since Grace and Rainier have both been gone, and in the case of sweet Grace, gone so darn long, I haven't paid as much attention to goings-on in Monaco. I followed the official Palace FaceBook page for a while but there was so much info and so much if it is in French (my french is terrible), I kind of gave up.

I became re-interested in the family again a bit in 2011 with the wedding, but more so with Pierre and Beatrice's delightful wedding, I have "watched" a bit. I do find Caroline's kids a bit more interesting. :)

Roc Agel was a happy place for him, growing up. I am glad it doesn't make Albert sad to be there, but I will be very cranky if he is not being a present father for his babies. I am fully convinced that his Mother, who so adored children, would wring his neck for how he treated his first two (I always want to be careful on this subject and not a gossip). Albert sometimes confuses me, maybe he is just really shy?

What is the large home (unsure what it is properly called) that belonged to Prince Rainier's Mother, I think I remember that she left that place to Princess Caroline? Marchais sounded familiar but my brain is not quite "in gear" today, I apologize. Grace lived with the girls on Avenue Foch and when I can get up I will fetch my books, see if I can help in that area. I have about 50, about Grace and Monaco and the Grimaldi Family/Dynasty, so I should say I will fetch a book or two :)
