Strict Monaco holiday caravan law that could get you in trouble if broken

With its large and powerful police force it’s no wonder millionaires flock to Monaco – a country that aims to be one of the safest in the world.

Every corner has CCTV watched over by officers at police HQ and if you do break the law Monaco has a zero tolerance policy – everyone can be prosecuted.

And this is just one of the reasons – apart from no income tax – that millionaires want to live here.

Now BBC2 cameras have visited the French Riviera paradise to discover just what goes on where a third of the population are millonaires.



Monaco has strict laws including the banning of caravans and campervans

Chief police shooting instructor Thierry Amey gleefully announces: “Often just the sight of a weapon is enough to diffuse the situation.

“Monaco is a very security conscious place. Even the bad guys here know they can’t do what they want.”

Monaco has an incredibly strict legal code.

You can’t walk down the street barefoot or without a shirt and don’t even think about planning to bring in a camper van!

During a visit to police HQ the cameras catch a campervan pulling up on a street on CCTV.

Within minutes an order goes out across the radio to a patrol car and the campervan is moved on.

Officer Guillaum says: “Campervans are forbidden from driving or parking here. It’s an old Law – I don’t know it’s origin.”

And Chief of Police Richard Marangoni is crystal clear with orders for his officers explaining: “Every infraction is prosecuted from the smallest to the largest – we take action.

“If you scratch a car door, there’ll be a procedure against you.”

Monaco, around the size of Hyde Park, prides itself on being the glamour capital of the world.

The streets are crammed with Rollers, Ferraris, Lamborghinis and McLarens.

Rooms with a private pool at the famous Hotel de Paris can cost £35,000 per night while people use helicopters like taxis.

Ex-playboy Prince Albert – who has just recovered from coronavirus – has the final word on all that happens in this nation of 37,000 people.

He flies by private jet – naturally – drives fast cars and has a cellar at his palace containing 15,000 bottles of super-expensive wine.

Huge yachts grab attention too and harbour masters struggle to fit them all in at £1,887 a night. 

Assistant harbour master Gerald Mazzola says: “For me, they are like crazy children, they want everything and they want more and more and more and more.”

Inside Monaco is on BBC2 on Mondays at 9pm
