The words luxury and Côte d’Azur are synonymous with one another: sparkling Mediterranean waters, exceptional gastronomy, high-end shopping, the classic-Hollywood-movie elegance of nearby Nice, Monaco and Cannes, the list goes on.

This playground for the rich and famous is home to many magnificent hotels, but none uphold quite the reputation as the Grand-Hôtel Du Cap-Ferrat, a Four Seasons Hotel, which has attracted the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Winston Churchill and Charlie Chaplin over its decades of unmatched service.

Alongside the sights and sounds of the incomparable French Riviera are a multitude of facilities and activities available to guests at the hotel itself, whose staff will cater to every need for your luxurious trip.

Things to Do at the Grand-Hôtel Du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Resort

Le Spa

The Grand-Hôtel du Cap Ferrat, A Four Seasons Resort spa is predictably superb, with an indoor lap pool, fitness facilities and stunning array of treatments to enjoy during your stay. Services include state-of-the-art facials and body treatments, healing massages, hair and makeup, a full wedding beauty programme and even a charming kids’ collection of mini treatments.


Three different but equally enticing restaurants are on offer: Michelin-starred Le Cap for gastronomic, ocean-influenced delights; the laid-back La Véranda restaurant with its stylish French-bistro ambience; and the Grand-Hôtel du Cap Ferrat Club Dauphin poolside grill serving fresh salads, local fish and wines.


The hotel’s adept team will customise every aspect of your special day should you wish to host your nuptials here. With 17 leafy acres on offer, your biggest decision will be where exactly to say ‘I do’; an elegant salon within the palatial hotel itself, overlooking the Mediterranean or the gorgeous gardens, perhaps?

Wellness Retreat

For a true sense of escapism and relaxation, the hotel offers a unique, holistic programme of activities designed to engage the mind. Choose from gardening and cooking to yoga and outdoor exercises, and even pottery, flower arranging and aromatherapy. Each activity is there to connect you with the spectacular natural environment and encourage a healthy lifestyle.

Things to Do Nearby the Grand-Hôtel Du Cap-Ferrat

Hire a Vintage Car

Saint-Jean Cap-Ferrat holidays couldn’t be more sophisticated. If you fancy playing James Bond for a few hours and exploring the sights and sounds of the Côte d’Azur such as Nice, Cannes and Monaco, the hotel works closely with a rental company specialising in classic and super cars - so you can travel around in ultimate style. The concierge will even create a bespoke itinerary for sightseeing, dining and shopping to make it that bit extra special.

Exploring World-Famous Cities

Saint-Jean Cap-Ferrat is located midway between Nice and Monaco, two of the most desirable destinations not just along the French Riviera, but the whole of Europe. The capital of the Côte d’Azur, Nice, is a city boasting an eclectic mix of arts and culture, gastronomy and history, all set on an oceanside paradise. The city-state of Monaco exudes classic glamour, it’s an icon of luxury and offers an abundance of history, culture and exclusive shopping, dining and entertainment of the highest degree.


There are five peaceful, pretty beaches in Saint-Jean Cap-Ferrat – all public ones – and most offer water sports activities such as paddleboarding, kayaking, windsurfing and diving. Trips out to sea can also be arranged on chartered boats by the concierge, who are on hand to ensure your Grand-Hôtel Du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Resort beach getaway is an unforgettable one.

Mountain Activities

Saint-Jean Cap-Ferrat is one lucky place, enjoying the glittering ocean in front and surrounded by mountains behind. From the hotel you can book a plethora of excursions like mountain biking, canyoning, rock-climbing, horse riding and even buggy tours. On a slightly more refreshing note, you can even try your hand at rafting or kayaking on the river or lake.

Wine Tours

It seems implausible to visit the South of France and not take advantage of a local vineyard tour, of which there are many. The concierge can book you a once-in-a-lifetime experience where they will fly you and three friends in a helicopter from Monaco to the beautiful Château de Selle to learn the secrets of French rosé, accompanied by a personalised picnic – prepared by none other than the hotel’s executive chef, Yoric Tièche – after sampling a vintage or three, of course. A chauffeur-driven Mercedes will return you back to the hotel along with a limited-edition bottle from the Château’s own reserve.
