When Winston Churchill and Elizabeth Taylor came to the Cote d’Azur, they checked in at this Riviera icon. Dating back to 1908, it occupies the tip of its namesake cape, Cap Ferrat, with spectacular views towards Nice and Monaco.

Surrounded by magnificent gardens and terraces, it has a spectacular clifftop pool with sea views that makes up for its lack of a beach. The spa and fitness studios are as exceptional, as are the palatial dining room and Michelin-starred food.

This place is all about living the high life: borrow the hotel’s 1960s Mercedes convertible for a spin down the Grande Corniche, à la Cary Grant and Grace Kelly; or take an exclusive two-hour stargazing dinner in the hotel’s garden, with a famous astronomer on hand to point out the constellations. It’s a special occasion experience for most, but if your goal is swanning around the Cote d’Azur like the A-list, this is the hotel to book.
