Saint Jean Cap Ferrat
Why rent a Luxury Holiday Villa on Saint Jean Cap Ferrat...
St Jean Cap Ferrat is a peninsula which is admired for being simultaneously glamorous yet still beautifully unspoilt. The charming town is nestled in greenery with isolated beaches. Cap Ferrat exudes the sophisticated and admired old-style Cote d’Azur glamour. It attracts those who desire to be immersed in a world of old money luxury, with charming coastal footpaths and some of the most magnificent private villas found in the South of France. Known to the locals as the last gem of the Cote d’Azur, it is one of the most exclusive and prestigious areas in the South of France. Part of its magical attractive comes from it being a light, peaceful and elegant region with breath-taking views of the sea, yet being close to the lively, vibrant life of Monaco and Nice which are just 25 minutes away. It is truly a paradise retreat, perfect for those wishing to unwind and relax in tasteful decadence, whilst also being a fabulous base to explore the glitz and life of the rest of the French Riviera.
Cap Ferrat has long earned its reputation for being the home to some of the world’s most expensive real estate. Dating back to the 1800s, St Jean Cap Ferrat attracted the wealth and interest of many Royals. It was King Leopold II of Belgium who first built on the Cap. His glorious villa is now part of the open botanical gardens and is a must see whilst on holiday in the region. The world famous Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild was built in 1905, which can be rented exclusively under very special conditions to host events.
As it is such an important cultural area, there are numerous things to do and see whilst on vacation in Cap Ferrat, such as visiting the aforementioned Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild which is perched high on a hill, offering sensational sea views on either side of its mini palace structure. It is also filled with a beautiful collection of antiques collected by the former Baroness Ephrussi de Rothschild. Visitors can also spend time exploring the winding cobbled old streets and port of the lovely Villefranche
which is located just West of the Cap. It is certainly one of the most atmospheric of the towns on the Cote d’Azur, with definite influences from its neighbour Italy. Visitors who love architecture or beautiful buildings visit Villefranche’s little chapel Saint Pierre Des Pêcheurs which is decorated by Jean Cocteau.
For those wishing to mix the sophisticated elegance of staying in Cap Ferrat with the glamour and vibrancy of some of the Cote d’Azur’s nightlife, be sure to visit the fabulous Monte Carlo which is just 20 minutes from the Cap. It has one of the most impressive casinos on the coast. Or, if you fancy people watching, head to the Café de Paris where you can enjoy a cold glass or rosé or a coffee whilst spotting famous socialites and celebrities. A delightful way to appreciate Cap Ferrat’s own beauty and views is by exploring one of the coastal paths which stretch from the charming little port of St Jean Cap Ferrat to the southern tip. Alternatively, there is the more level paved pathway from Beaulieu to the town centre which is afforded shade by the trees. There are also many gorgeous flower, fruit and antique markets dotted around Cap Ferrat and in its neighbouring villages which provide visitors with a charming glimpse into the locals bustling lifestyles.
