Cap-Ferrat peninsula is undeniably one of the most charming corners of the French Rivera, located just 30 minutes drive from Monaco and 40 minutes from Nice. No wonder that during F1 Grand Prix racing in streets of Monaco and the red carpet festival in Nice both racing and movie enthusiasts flock around Cap-Ferrat, too. Yet, the last village with lively local restaurants, typical houses and a vibrant night life stays behind already upon turning one's way onto the peninsula. Further on life flows languidly, contrasting to vigorous water communication as countless small ships and graceful celebrity yachts cruise back and forth along its shores.
The Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, a small luxury hotel built in 1908, is located on the very tip of the Cap-Ferrat peninsula. Its 17 acre garden screens it from the rest of the peninsula, creating bliss of peace and tranquility - an ideal spot for relaxation. Autographed celebrity photos adorn the walls of a cigar-bar, causing guests' admiration. Names like Charles Chaplin, Lisa Minnelli, Elizabeth Tailor, Elton John, Bill Clinton, Boris Yeltsin and others speak for themselves and for the status of this establishment, too.
At The Grand-Hôtel each guest feels pampered with plenty of personalized attention. Even a waiter welcoming you at breakfast kindly inquires how long you plan to stay. Especially lucky are those, who decide to celebrate their birthday here. Having asked just for a little cake with a candle, they get a wonderful surprise in addition - a birthday song performed by a chorus of waiters themselves!
A breakfast is an amazing experience - served in the garden, under accompaniment of birds' songs. Thanks to well-trained personnel it is impeccably clean and tidy in spite of "little singers" all around. Genuine gourmet pleasures await you in the hotel's café, with tables set around a swimming pool. An amazing view of the Mediterranean Sea opens up from there! Moreover, it is just a couple of meters away...
Plenty of exclusive and enjoyable destinations in the direction of Monaco await those, who wish to break away from gentle and suave ambience of The Grand-Hôtel for a while, presenting much better choices than the opposite, Nice direction.
