An exquisite five-star Cap Ferrat stay, at a hotel with dazzling bay views, including breakfast

Legendary playground of the rich and famous Cap Ferrat, a forested peninsula on the French Riviera, remains an elegant bolthole that harks back to a genteel era. Member of Leading Hotels of the World and consistent TripAdvisor Travellers Choice winner, Royal-Riviera is a Belle Epoque grand dame that once played host to famous dancers Isadora Duncan and Prokofiev, as well as the British aristocracy. Creatively refashioned over the years, public areas embrace a neo-Hellenic meets-Mediterranean style – hues of olive green, amber and ochre perfectly setting off a quirky handpicked collection of mismatched designer furniture and accessories.

Equally charming are its exquisitely laid-out gardens (designed by Jean Mus), where you can find many a quiet shady corner for kicking back in a wicker chair with a good book. Take a dip in the heated outdoor pool, or wander through a gate onto the coastal path that leads directly down to the private sandy beach – bedecked with smart blue and white loungers. From here, you can indulge in watersports such as jet-skiing, water-skiing or kayaking, then wind things down back at the hotel with a session in the Thalgo spa. Retreat to the calm of your room, with its private balcony overlooking the gardens and sea, then enjoy a pre-dinner tipple in Le Cap bar, with its animal prints, ethnic curios and delightful terrace. Two much-feted restaurants with a Michelin-starred chef add to the overall appeal, making this a stay to remember.
