  • Three-night minimum in July and Aug., two nights June and Sept. (but is that a bad thing?)

Fodor's Review

Just this side of paradise, this extravagantly expensive hotel has always been the exclusive playground for Hollywood's elite; now, managed by Four Seasons since May 2015, it is the standard for discreet Cap-Ferrat moneyed luxury. Perched at the end of the peninsula with floor-to-ceiling windows leaning out over crashing waves, guest rooms have spectacular views far out to sea. Inside, understated class meets modern comfort: picture thick, white, softer-than-soft comforters, hardwood floors, plasma-screen TVs, and private terraces—some with their own pool (and a villa with its own tennis court). Even the Kids' Clubhouse outshines local hotels. En plus is the Michelin-star Le Cap restaurant with 600 bottles on the wine list; open June to August, and for dinner only, it's headed by wunderkind Didier Aniés, who creates tasty dishes like Aquitaine caviar lasagna. La Véranda offers all-day dining and is open year-round. FYI: legendary hotel swim instructor Pierre Gruneberg has given lessons to the likes of Picasso, Sinatra, and the late, great Robin Williams.
