Jean Castellini, Minister of Finance and Economy, Rémy Rolland, Administrator of the Domains, and Albert Croesi, Head of Mission to the Minister of State in Operation Apolline, have detailed continuing financial support for residents of Jardins d’Apolline who have been displaced in order for major remedial work to be undertaken on their apartments.
The government had previously announced measures, which would remain in force in June, July and August offering rents and charges.
At a press conference on Thursday, August 3, the three officials said that from September 1, residents will pay 50 percent of their original rent, while HCC holders will receive 50 percent compensation on the amount of the rent they would have paid had they been tenants.
During the course of the work, the State will propose a solution adapted to each household. For the duration of temporary rehousing, rent and charges will not be paid whether for the apartment at the Jardins d’Apolline or the temporary accommodation. The apartments will be returned to tenants and owners as they are on the original plan.
The opportunity is being given to each tenant to choose temporary accommodation solutions, such as a second home, accommodation with relatives, or rental in adjoining communes. A flat monthly allowance will then be allocated according to the accommodation occupied at the Jardins d’Apolline: from €1,500 for two rooms up to €3,500 for four rooms.
In all cases, the costs of moving and storing furniture will be entirely the responsibility of the State.

For more healthy tips see www.naomis.kitchenHealthy snacks on the go Have you ever experienced “hanger”? It’s the result of hunger meeting anger and usually occurs if you skip a meal, which causes a drop in blood sugar. Time flies at a tradeshow and hanger is a common problem, which often causes unhealthy emergency binge snacking. Like I mentioned previously with the water tips, plan ahead and pack a snack. Personally I love Medjool dates as their natural sugars give me the lift I need. Always balance your snacks to include a good source of fat and carbohydrates; the perfect and easy way to do this is to add a few nuts (6-8 either almonds, walnuts or pecans for example). Otherwise you can pick up some great snack bars. I love the Rawbites bars, which are bars made from raw ingredients (dates, nuts) and with a slight naturally flavouring (like cacao or cinnamon). You’ll find these at the well-stocked Dietetique Gourmande bio store at 7 avenue Saint Laurent. Body moves If you’ve had a heavy night of eating or drinking (or both!), a workout may not sound too appealing but I urge you to fight any resistance, put on your trainers and move your body. Exercise, even a simple walk, will boost your energy and restore your mood as it stimulates brain chemicals that make you feel happier and more relaxed. Luckily we have the most beautiful natural gym on our doorstep with coastal walks going toward either Menton (from the Monte-Carlo Country Club) or towards Cap d’Ail Plage Mala (from the car park at the end of the beach). You can tie in a business “walk meeting”, catch up with friends on foot or simply enjoy some alone time, which during a hectic work event can be most appreciated.
