The luxurious Cap Estel resort on the French Riviera

By Adrian Prisca


Updated on

The beautiful Cap Estel is pretty easy to find, nestled between Monaco and Nice, on the idyllic French Riviera, a 30-minute taxi-drive from Cote d’Azur International Airport in Nice. The resort is backed up by a long and interesting history, having been known as a marvelous place to stay in this staggering area for more than 60 years now.

Superbly hidden in the lush vegetation of the French Riviera, the resort was originally constructed as a summer home for a Russian prince. It was later converted into a hotel, during the 1950s, and has since then become a summer destination for stars like The Beatles, David Niven and Catherine Deneuve.

It has undergone extensive renovation in 2007 and now features cozy suites, sized between 500 square feet and 5,000 square feet. Good indicators for the luxury of this place are the marble floors, terraced gardens and breathtaking views of the gorgeous Mediterranean sunsets.

Nearby, a plethora of additional sought-after spots can also be found. For example, Monaco’s casinos are just 15 minutes away, while, if traveling towards east, 25 minutes away Nice awaits you with its cosmopolitan lifestyle – shopping, sunbathing, yachting etc. Including a total of 18 rooms and suites, nightly rates at Cap Estel start at €430 or $568.
