Old syle French Riviera glamour
Nestling between Nice and Monaco, this forested peninsula has always attracted the rich and famous, drawn by the mild climate, stunning seascapes and a pretty Provencal coastline. Despite its allure, Cap Ferrat remains relatively unspoilt.
To explore, follow a coastal path, maybe starting at the little port of St Jean Cap Ferrat and on to Beaulieu, past David Niven’s former home. Visit the mini baroque palace of Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, set high on a hill with superb sea views. It is filled with precious porcelains and tapestries and boasts magnificant fountain gardens that dance to changing music and form the backdrop to summer Operatic concerts.
Explore the atmospheric Italianate town of Villefranche, west of Cap Ferrat or enter the parallel world of Monte Carlo and its achingly exuberant Casinos.
