With the feeling of spring now definitely in the air it's not only the first of the sun-seeking tourists that are arriving on the French Riviera and in Monaco. A number of world class events are also attracting a whole host of international stars to our shores this month, with Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray here for the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters Tennis for example. And this is only the start, with the famous Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes Film Festival next month the celebrities will be descending en masse and eyes across the globe will turn their attention to this small corner of the Mediterranean. So, before the museums, beaches and restaurants start to swell with a throng of visitors, make the most of the relative quiet and say hello, once again, to the sun. "
Apart from these events there is also the Historic Monaco Grand Prix on the weekend of the 1st and 2nd May. More information at: http://www.cotedazurrental.com/historic_monaco_grand_prix.htm
