If you want to enjoy the vibe of the French Riviera yet prefer more secluded and exclusive accommodation, you’re going to love the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc. About half an hour by car from Cannes and set on a gorgeous green peninsula known as Cap d’Antibes, the property has been one of the French Riviera’s finest for over 150 years. Set on a private bay that will impress any visitor, the hotel began its history with the European and the Russian aristocracy which coveted Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc as their summer getaway.
It is clear to see why the hotel is part of the Oetker Collection, whose properties “are true masterpieces located in the world’s most desirable destinations”. In this particular property, you’ll be welcomed by France’s luxuriously classical splendor along with the personal attention, yet with all the high-tech comforts and conveniences of the modern world. The rooms are designed in a classically elegant French theme, where fine fabrics with floral prints are juxtaposed against gorgeous sea views and verdant landscapes.
No effort has been spared on the culinary front, where Le Bristol Paris’s three-Michelin-starred chef Eric Frechon, also consulting chef at the hotel), teamed up with the property’s executive chef Arnaud Poette to present Mediterranean and Provençal cuisine with a modern take. You can sample the results at the one-star Michelin Louroc Restaurant, at the Eden Roc Grill and all across the property’s food and beverage outlets.
Here’s a little tip: the hotel’s legendary Cognac-based cocktail, Eden-Roc Splash, has been updated with a hint of raspberry and is a must for fine palates. Bar lovers will be spoiled for choice, whether it’s Bar La Rotonde indoors yet with gorgeous sunset views, the lobby’s Bar Bellini for its exquisite wines and tapa-like dishes, or the Eden-Roc Champagne Lounge by the sea where the choice of Champagnes – accompanied of course by sublime hors d’œuvres – will delight every amateur and connoisseur alike.
