1. Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc
With a history stretching back to 1870, this Antibes Oetker Collection hotel really knows how to look after those guests who crave peace and privacy. Every summer for the past 152 years, the tip of Cap d’Antibes has been the mythical destination where friends and families gather to soak up the sun and fragrant Mediterranean air in an atmosphere that defines elegance. Whether you arrive by private yacht at the hotel’s own jetty or sweep in from Nice airport, there’s an immediate feeling of welcome and attention.
1. Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat
With a guestbook signed by everyone from Elizabeth Taylor to Winston Churchill and an enviable perch overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the palatial spread of the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel has been the epitome of Côte d’Azur chic more than a century. From the soft, dappled light in the private gardens to the uninterrupted sea views from the pool restaurant Club Dauphin right at the edge of the Mediterranean, The Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat offers everything needed for a complete escape.
3. Château Saint-Martin & Spa
Located 15 km from Nice Airport, Château Saint-Martin & Spa overlooks the typical Provencal village of Vence. Built on the ruins of an ancient Knight’s Templar, this 5-star hotel combines the soul of Provence to the prestige of the Riviera. Try the wine tasting room in the tower of the castle and wine cellar carved into the rock for exclusive wine tastings.
4. Les Roches Rouges
The grand hotel’s name, Les Roches Rouges, refers to the distinctive rocks that characterise the Esterel - a stretch of coast running from Cannes to St Raphaël. Wherever your gaze drifts, the charm of the French Rivera - in widescreen. Guests quickly become absorbed in a background of blue as the hotel’s design and ambience are all about maximizing the sense of light. The hotel creates a mood of calm where guests feel the flavors and fragrances of Provence. And the seawater pool sets the skin tingling too.
5. Villa La Coste
Situated halfway between the historic town of Aix en Provence, home of Cezanne, and the famous Luberon Nature Park, Villa La Coste is set in the midst of the French Provence landscape, within the heart of the biodynamic vineyard Château La Coste, an international destination for art, architecture and natural beauty.
