At the heart of Cap d’Antibes’ magnificent landscape lies a priceless treasure, the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc. A true legend on the Côte d’Azur, this palace has been around for one hundred and fifty years, inspiring its visitors. High ranking aristocrats, painters, directors, actors, poets and photographers, many great names have stayed here and wanted to return regularly. Throughout its history, the hotel has welcomed personalities who have marked the history of art and cinema such as Francis Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Marlene Dietrich and Rita Hayworth. This mythical hotel is both an exceptional place, a place for extraordinary meetings, and an ideal second home where the sweetness of life is cultivated to perfection.
