MONACO: THE ELDORADO OF THE FRENCH | M6 | 66 minutes
Monaco, the paradise of the wealthy where one resident in three is a millionaire. Two square kilometres of tiny island unique in Europe… defying Covid-19. A mere one thousand infections in one year. So, life continues almost without restraint. Since the autumn, several hundred French tourists have been arriving in droves each weekend. People like Kelly and Morgane, two 22-year-old women. And like Nadege, who had a really tough time during the flooding in the La Roya valley and who comes to seek comfort with her Monaco friends. We followed the renaissance of a grand hotel after months of crisis and restaurant managers who are rubbing their hands at the arrival of their French neighbours. But for how much longer? Because in the town, the locals don’t always take a positive view of this virus-bearing influx. So, the French leading the dolce vita in Monaco, a blessing or a risk? Here’s a weekend in the principality under coronavirus.
