With its instantly recognizable white facade, the Grand- Hotel du Cap-Ferrat first opened in 1908 and has been welcoming prominent guests ever since (Elizabeth Taylor, Charlie Chaplin and Winston Churchill were all regulars). The hotel has the coveted Palace de France classification and it’s easy to see why: It has timeless grace and old-world glamour in a sublime seaside setting (it overlooks Cap-Ferrat, for which it is named). Villa Rose-Pierre is a sugar-pink, four-bedroom villa hidden among one acre of private gardens with a private pool, tennis and Pétanque courts, a gym, sauna and a private butler available 24/7. If you can tear yourself away from the dreamy villa, visit the famous Club Dauphin and rent a private cabana.
