Life on the French Riviera – A Day at the Races

Did you know that we have our very own race course here on the French Riviera? The Hippodrome at Cagnes sur Mer has a lively winter and summer programme and last weekend we were lucky enough to attend a lunch with the American Club of the Riviera.

We were treated to a wonderful equestrian display and there can’t be many race courses which enjoy a spectacular sea view. Our tables for lunch had a fabulous view over the race course right across to the sparkling Mediterranean.

The event was attended by members of the ‘American Club of the Riviera’ and VIP guests including former Senator Paul Trible, President of Christopher Newport University and Les Brownlee, former Secretary of the US Army.  They are looking to establish a student exchange programme with Monaco and their group joined the American Club lunch along with many members and guests.
