PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

On a secluded peninsula snaking out into the Med, Cap Estel’s gated mansion is a shot of Riviera glam amid the azure. Surrounded by palms and terraced gardens, with an elegant restaurant and Monaco and Nice close by, this exclusive retreat is A-list alluring.

At the Hotel 

CHECK-OUT: Noon, but late check-out may be available for a charge. Check-in, 4pm.
Rates exclude breakfast, from €28.

FACILITIES

Cinema, spa, gym, library with DVDs and CDs. In rooms: flatscreen TV, DVD/CD, free WiFi, minibar and bottled water.

PACKING TIPS

Your biggest, most movie-star sunglasses; LBD or crisp linen shirt for stylish dining in the hotel’s restaurant; an autobiography of a screen icon such as Grace Kelly or Humphrey Bogart.

POOL

Not one but two pools to choose from: a fabulous saltwater infinity pool overlooking the sea (open from May until mid-October, subject to the weather), or the spa’s indoor pool.

ALSO

Beneath the terraced gardens is Cap Estel’s own secluded stony beach, kitted out with sunloungers.
Along with the indoor pool, sauna and hammam, try out some of the spa treatments, such as 90-minute facials, toning body treatments, hair masks, waxing and a variety of massages.

Rooms 

The property is in parts: Le Cap is the original building; La Mer and Le Parc are both positioned at the edge of the peninsula. Suite 210, Le Cap, is a palatial expanse with cream and oatmeal decor, high ceilings, a living room with splashes of crayon-bright colour, a vast terrace and two bedrooms and bathrooms. Suite 410, also in the main building, could double up as a company HQ, with its office space, big lounge area, kitchen and terrace – but the ruby accents and African artefacts mean it’s far from corporate. La Mer’s white and airy rooms, perched above the water, are more modest in size, but they have views of the pretty beach.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

La Table du Cap Estel’s neutral decor, low leather chairs, and black-and-white tiled floor provide a sophisticated backdrop to the culinary offerings, which include foie gras with mashed asparagus and rhubarb sorbet.

Liquid Bliss 

The traditionally styled bar, with chandeliers, cream leather bar stools and glossy, toffee-toned wooden surfaces, serves cocktails until 11pm. There is also a pool bar in summer.

Experience the Extraordinary 

The terraced gardens make for a romantic promenade – wander down to the tiny, stone beach and pull up a deck chair. If you’re feeling active, improve your backhand on the tennis courts, then cool down in the saltwater infinity pool at the edge of the gardens. For another kind of pool experience, shoot some balls in the downstairs lounge area. Ask nicely and you might be able to watch a film at the private cinema. Having fully scoped out Cap Estel and its five acres, drive 11km to Nice, or 9km to Monaco, and explore the designer boutiques, chic eateries and glamorous bars. Èze’s ancient fortified village, crowned with 12th-century castle ruins, also deserves a recce, as does the seaside town of Èze-sur-Mer, which boasts some pretty beaches and perfect picnic spots. Seek out floral blooms and scents at the Jardin Exotique (www.eze-riviera.com) and continue the fragrant theme at Grasse perfumeries Galimard and Fragonard, which both have shops in Eze village.

Transportation 

Planes 

The hotel is a 35-minute drive from Nice airport (www.nice.aeroport.fr), or 10 minutes by car from the heliport of Monaco (www.heliairmonaco.com).

Trains 

From London, take the train via Lille to Marseille; from Paris, board the TGV. The track that snakes from Marseille to Menton – stopping at Toulon, St Raphaël, Cannes, Antibes, Nice and Monaco – is spectacular. Eze is two km away, Monaco is 7km, with both serviced by SNCF. The hotel can organise taxis to and from the station.

Automobiles 

Cap Estel is positioned at the heart of the Côte d'Azur, on the Basse Corniche, road RN 98 – the coast road from Nice to the principality of Monaco, close to Villefranche sur Mer, St Jean Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu sur mer, and overlooked by the Moyenne Corniche and mediaeval village of Èze. The hotel has free parking space for guests.
