Marchais Estate
 
Does anybody know if the family still uses the estate ? Do they rent it out ? I think that Prince Rainier has been so ill these last few years and can't travel far from Monaco and Prince Albert is busy with his various duties and Caroline has her own homes with travles with E and the kids . Stephanie is busy with her kids and current love affairs and doens't seem like the type to be a farm owner.:confused:

I believe the family still use Chateau de Marchais which is, by the way, famous for its extensive hunting grounds..Prince Rainier used to go there seasonly..maybe not in last two years..but who knows..as you said there are living their lives now and who knows how often they visit Marchais..

The Marchais estate is pretty long in property of Grimaldi's..since 1854, when current ruler of Monaco, Charles III bought it. I have read somewhere that according to Rainier
last will the Marchais estate will be given to Albert (among other things). I'm not sure is that 100% true.

thx for the pics

Thanks for the pics and info :) . It was strange to see Albert with hair guess it's from the mid 80's . The house and the surrounding property looks great. I have never heard of Albert hunting but I think Caroline goes sometimes with Ernest.

That would be a wonderful photo of him in the other thread with pets. I liked it very much Michelle.

I can't recall where I read it someone said something about Steph getting the estate actually Albert did. I am sure however the sister's and their families will have free access to it.

I read somewhere that Marchais is actually six times the size of Monaco....wow!:)
