Cote d'Azur, France
Situated on a secluded peninsula overlooking the sparkling sea in Eze, on the Cote d’Azur, in the South of France, Cap Estel is a glamorous Mediterranean hideaway. Originally a summer home for a Russian prince, this seafront mansion was turned into a hotel in the 1950s and quickly became a popular holiday haunt of the rich and famous. The hotel is ten minutes from Monaco and a 35-minute drive from Nice International Airport. Surrounded by palms and terraced gardens with spectacular panoramic views, this award-winning, luxury boutique hotel is a haven of peace and tranquility. It will appeal to discerning families seeking a secluded and intimate escape in an enchanting setting. Superb facilities include a private beach, two pools, a Michelin-star restaurant, spa and fitness centre. Families are welcome but child-friendly facilities are limited. Cap Estel, which was refurbished in 2007, provides 28 elegant and spacious rooms and suites spread over four separate locations: Le Cap (the original mansion), La Corniche, La Mer and Le Marc. All rooms feature king-size beds, state-of-the-art technology and balconies offering breathtaking views of the sea. For those wanting to indulge, Suite One in Le Cap is stunning. It stretches across the entire fourth floor and has a huge terrace. Enjoy leisurely lunches by the pool and lavish gourmet dinners at La Table de Patrick Raingeard, which offers a seasonal menu of Mediterranean delights. There is a wealth of activities on offer at Cap Estel. Take a stroll through the gardens, swim in the infinity pool, cool off in the sea or be pampered at the serene spa.
