The French Riviera is home to one of the world’s most iconic resorts: the Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat has occupied an enviable place between Nice and Monaco since 1908. It is surrounded by seventeen acres of gardens, updated by renowned landscape artist Jean Mus, and boasts some of the region’s best views. Interiors are elegant and understated, with cream-and-white marble and the occasional touch of color: a Murano glass chandelier here, a vibrant tapestry there. The Residence Wing features suites with massive glass-paneled sliding doors that open onto terraces and private plunge pools. Past and future co-exist, especially in such details as the glass funicular, which sweeps guests from the hotel to the beach Club Dauphin and its Olympic-sized infinity pool.
