Clos Saint Pierre

This villa wasn't so big when Louis II used to live there. Caroline and Stefano decided to build bedrooms for the kids (on 1988). There is a movie camera, in front of clos Saint Martin, to keep an eye on the security of the princesses.

Here are some pics of Charlotte @ her apartment in Monte Carlo: Charlotte Casiraghi Back in Monte Carlo | RDuJour

Is her apartment inside the beach club property? Cuz she is seen leaving and there's a sign that says "beach club". The apartments seem nice. And it's a big complex with all the units close knit, row upon row of balconies overlooking the garden.

I think the place at the Beach Club is not an appartment but more like a private terrace that you can rent?

I think I found the Manoir du Mée (Caroline and Ernst's home near Fontainebleau) at Wikimapia. I remember seeing pictures of it and it was across from the church. So it might be the house you see here across the street from the church Notre Dame:
Wikimapia - Let's describe the whole world!
The roof and terrace look like the pictures I've seen from the house.

^Thanks!

Yeah, maybe Charlotte rents at the beach club for special weekends with her crew. Like Grand Prix week and her birthday.

Yes, there are 26 rooms available at the beach club to rent. I knew a friend once who rented one out for a big bash she was having with her husband's (who's from Nice) family. Here's a link to the beach club's website - you can click on the rooms & suites button to take a look. Monte Carlo Beach : Luxury hotel in Monaco, Mediterranean Sea view.
As to Manoir du Mée, I have to confess I'm a little shocked. The trees are all on the wrong side. If you wanted privacy (okay, granted Mée-sur-Seine isn't the most populated city on earth, but that don't stop the paps) then wouldn't you want a house with trees - not that there are many of them - on the street side? That said, they could just move into the church - that's got a lot of trees around it

It seems like Charlotte rents one of the rooms/suites they don't show on the virtual tour. I don't recognize the balcony furniture in their website. I bet Charlotte rents the best one and it's not publicized. Considering who she is, though, she probably doesn't even have to pay. I mean, her family owns so much SBM stock, what's the point of her paying? The money would just go right back where it came from!

That's right they own like 30 percent of it or so someone mentioned a long time ago. they certainly are beautiful but does the sbm only own these?? Perhaps we were mistaken but didn't someone mention that the SBM owned more places in Monaco or was this it??

I don't know much about them so the pics were fab this is the first we had seen these.

No no, they own more. They own most of the hotels in Monaco, most (or all?) of the casinos, spas and restaurants too. To quote their own website:
Quote:
Monte-Carlo SBM operates the Principality of Monaco’s most distinctive assets. It comprises 2 palaces and 2 deluxe hotels, 5 casinos, 60 conference and banqueting rooms, 33 bars and restaurants, 3 spas including Les Thermes Marins de Monte-Carlo, as well as cultural and leisure venues including the Opera, the Salle des Etoiles, the Jimmy'z night club, the Monte-Carlo Golf Club and the Monte-Carlo Country Club.
Here's their website: Luxury hotels, restaurants, casinos & Spa in Monaco - Sporting Summer Festival 2009 - Monte-Carlo Resort. You can take a look at all the different properties they own. And ever since Rainier ran Aristotle Onassis out of town - by creating thousands of new shares in the SBM and then buying them all - the Grimaldi family have always had the majority share in the Société. In 2004, it was reported they had a 70% stake in SBM (and I doubt that's changed). The Johnson family, who founded Fidelity investments, owns something like 5.5% of the shares as well. Anyway, since this is getting a little OT, I shall link it back to the original conversation and say no, I doubt Charlotte pays to rent a room at the beach club. Besides, even if it wasn't really the done thing, would you refuse if she asked? When she's the daughter of the heir to the throne? I think all the rooms are gorgeous though, and yes, I bet they have some premium suites that they don't advertise. I'd be shock if they didn't!

^Good points, Thecia. I agree with you that no one could refuse to provide Charlotte or her brothers with a room. It's truly a "duh" matter, as we say in the US. I mean, there is no question. Of course, she picks up her pretty blackberry and calls someone, who in turn calls someone, who in turn, sets it up, and it's done!

This pictures are taken from the beach bungalows in the beach club. The beach club is right next to the Monte Calro Beach Hotel and there are a certain number of day-time bungalows rented. But they are not appartments or hotel rooms. They offer dressing facilities, a little kitchen, storage space and the bigger ones have a little living room for receiptions and their private terrace.

They probably had an arrangement.I wonder if they are waiting for the end of his court case to divorce or have any other special arrangement .I wonder if she will become friends again with her former friend Chantel? True, Prince Ernst of Hanover doesn't look like an easy character to live with.

Ernst's court case has already been and gone, unless he's appealing again. They did, however, have a pre-nup if I recall correctly, so that each would retain their own money in the event of a divorce. One would assume it would be the same with their residences. And as for becoming friends again with Chantal - call me pessimistic but I think that ship's sailed. Both Caroline and Chantal seem like very mature, reasonable women but I think getting over the hurdle of Caroline apparently "stealing" (that's not what I think - I think there had to have been problems in the marriage to begin with for Ernst to think of having an affair) Chantal's husband seems a rather large one. I'm sure they're friendly enough to each other and one would assume they have to be, with Ernst's son visiting he and Caroline in France and having a bond with the Casiraghis and of course little Alex, so their paths had to have crossed sometime over the past thirteen years but I don't think they'll ever be best pals.

I am wondering what Chantal thinks about this situation right now. She surely feels sorry for little Alex.

Do you guys think the Hannover boys will occassionally see Caro and the family ?

I'm not sure why Chantal should feel sorry for Alexandra!!! Chantal has been a cheated wife! It is human for her not to take care how now feels Caroline and Alexandra. I do not say that she should feel happy that Caroline is also a cheated wife.... but in the best situation she does not care!!

A bunch of lawyers, hotels and art galleries. And shops. No, just kidding. Where they live (in 7eme, around Rue Cler) is great. It's a quiet residential area and right next to the Champ de Mars where they've got children's playgrounds and a guignol theatre (not to mention the Eiffel Tower - just, you know, in case you missed it ) with village shops down the road and open air cafés (think croissants, pastry and cheese - what's more French than that? ). It has a great ambiance. And as CT pointed out of Flickr, there are lots of embassies in the area, so it's quite safe. I'm rather jealous actually.
