Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc
At its opening in 1870, which was overseen by the founder of Le Figaro, Auguste de Villemessant, it was created as a shelter for writers seeking out their lost inspiration. But this project was swiftly abandoned, and it became a beautiful hotel. In 1914, with a salt-water pool carved into the rock, the Eden Roc Pavillion was established, celebrating its 100th birthday last summer, before the famous cabins bordering the Med. A member of the Oetker collection, this wonderful Napoleon III style structure, located at the ver tip of the Cap d’Antibes, in a 9 hectare park, is a mythical refuge with its pine forest, planted with sweet smelling buds and rose garden. This year, its restaurant has been beautifully refurbished, now enticing guests with its cosy atmosphere. Our favourite has to be the Bar-Lounge, which overlooks the Iles de Lerins and its view of the sea. Enjoy the menu at the Eden-Roc Grill, with notes of the Mediterranean as well as a sushi selection. Finally, the best bit has to be the famous infinity pool, which has witnessed and continues to welcome international superstars…This year at the spa, comprising of 4 newly renovated treatments rooms, you can indulge yourself with a Sisley care treatment.
