Celebrate the Economic Recovery with Ten Days in the Riviera
Times were a little hard last year, and probably the only way to show that your unconquerable soul remains in tact is to get seven of your friends and €100,000 ($140,000 U.S.) together for a ten-day tour of the French Riviera, seven of them spent on a 100-foot yacht. No, really, anything less that that and there could still be some doubts...
The escapade, organized by Montreal's Pure Entertainment Group, begins somewhere in Western Europe, where you and your fellow sailors will be flown in a private jet to Nice. From there it's all high living: seven-day cruise (the pictured yacht is one of the fleet), two nights in Monte Carlo at the Hotel De Paris and four bottles of Dom on arrival, a two-hour massage for each person to put vigor in your legs again, and dinner at Alain Ducasse's Louis XV.
Travel dates are open from April 1 to September 1, 2010, and operators are probably standing by to take your booking. There might be easier ways to show you've turned it all around, but the words "French Riviera" are known to work rather well.
