To celebrate autumn, Hotel Métropole Monte-Carlo will be dressing up in Natural Attitude. From 18 September until 27 November 2009, the hotel will morph into its latest theme to mark the transition between the summer and winter season. Using autumnal shades of brown, beige and reds, the hotel will be displaying unique creations using natural materials throughout all the public areas.
Maud Lesur, the Artistic Director at the Hotel Métropole, explains how her inspirations behind the theme will “highlight the hotel’s involvement in eco-friendly actions and respect for nature. Such simple materials might be seen as unusual for a luxury hotel display – with wood being used principally in all public areas – but it is the perfect match for autumnal tones and is a gentle reminder to all of the importance of nature.”
The hotel’s entrance and lobby, as well as the tables in the bar and restaurant, will be decorated with unique floral arrangements containing small pieces of wood and cream orchids and, as the season turns, so will the display; with October introducing a huge composition of autumn leaves, red berries and branches and in the lobby; alongside brown dahlias. The tablecloths and napkin ties at the hotel’s Restaurant Joël Robuchon will be beige, with brown tumblers ate every setting.

Luxury Picnic on the Col d’Eze
Hotel Métropole is offering guests the chance to enjoy a luxury picnic, prepared by Executive Chef Christophe Cussac, under the trees the Col d’Eze, boasting spectacular views over Monaco and sweeping out to the Mediterranean sea. Guests will be chauffeured to the picnic spot, which in true Métropole style, is presented with fine china and cutlery and served by a personal waiter, as sommelier Cyril Jaegle will be on hand to serve fine Champagne and wines.
Restaurant Joël Robuchon Monte Carlo
At the hotel’s Restaurant Joel Robuchon Monte-Carlo, Executive Chef Christophe Cussac will be serving organic suckling pig, braised in Robuchon’s open kitchen with the intent to illuminate guests’ dining experience. The organic suckling pigs are bred locally in the open-air by a small producer from the Larzac region of the south of France. The meat is the highest quality and very tender and is one of the best selling dishes on the menu, served with the famous Robuchon puree. The menu boasts classic dishes blended with contemporary flavours and Mediterranean styles using locally produced ingredients. An on-site bakery ensures that only the freshest breads and pastries are being served.
