Cap Estel or how the Côte d’Azur never looked better
The gentle splashing of the waves against rocky shore greets those who enter the secluded Cap Estel estate, a two-hectare peninsula that basks in the blue tranquillity of the Mediterranean Sea. A unique sea-front hotel, Cap Estel promises a perfect Côte d’Azur boutique hotel experience, with unforgettable vistas, refined accommodations, and maximum discretion. This enchanting hotel is only 10 minutes away from Monaco and 30 minutes from Nice, but its graceful seclusion makes it a safe haven for those who want to avoid the bustle of crowds without relinquishing any comforts.
Cap Estel gives travellers the choice of 28 rooms and suites spread across different locations. Chic and charming ocean-liner-styled bedrooms built into the rock wall promise comfort and relaxation to those for whom size does not matter, while the suites of Le Parc, hung right over the sea, just above water splashed rocks teeming with marine life, offers quite a different perspective.
The highlight accommodations at Cap Estel are located in the century-old building at the heart of the estate: deluxe double rooms with spectacular vistas over the sea, and the jewel of the hotel, the ample penthouse suite 401 on the last floor, with its rich furnishings and decorations, bath-lounge, and spectacular private terrace.
A Creative Mediterranean Menu
The hotel’s Poolhouse restaurant makes lunch an enjoyable outdoor experience, but the true culinary delights await gourmands at La Table de Patrick Raingeard, the hotel’s exclusive restaurant, which has been awarded a prestigious Michelin star. Rich in fresh seasonal produce grown in the hotel’s own kitchen garden, the restaurant’s Mediterranean menu combines eclectic starters such as spiny artichokes cream with almond milk with flavourful dishes like wild turbot with parsley juice. A selection of fine cheeses is, of course, also on the menu.
All About Relaxation
Activities at the Cap Estel are centered around the extensive Spa and Wellness space with its sea-facing sauna, private beach, fitness center with a fully equipped gym, and stunning salt-water infinity edge pool with Jacuzzi, which opens up to the magnificent blue vista of the sea and, in the distance, the St-Jean-Cap Ferrat resort. Offering a fine blend of traditional skills and modern technology, the hotel’s Sothys Spa is a sanctuary that promises the rejuvenation of the body and the complete relaxation of the mind. Personalized treatments and individual care provided by expert beauticians round up the hotel’s attractive spa services.
Not Your Average Hotel
Capturing the best of the Côte d’Azur while creating a private, secluded space for its guests, Cap Estel is ideal for romantic getaways and well as for special events such as weddings, but may also prove a hard to resist proposition for those who only want a relaxing holiday in one of the best locations Europe has to offer. With its impressive location, refined elegance, and postcard vistas, Cap Estel is an intriguing hotel that fires up the imagination and enchants visitors with the soft music of the sea, forever near on cool and breezy romantic nights.
