Cap Estel

Hotel Cap Estel is a peaceful oasis situated on Côte d'Azur. It is a 5-star property offering absolute luxury to high society.


Housing in the French Riviera's cliffside château, Hotel Cap Estel offers complete privacy away from the hurly-burly of town. Initially, a 19th-century mansion of a Russian prince transformed into a luxury hotel in the 1950s.

Since then, the property has been modernized several times. The elegant white building enveloped with trees and hillside gardens offers the Mediterranean Sea panoramic views. Its superb location coupled with 5-star amenities makes it a tempting hideout for lovers and discerning travelers.


Cap Estel resides on its peninsula in the Mediterranean Sea. It enjoys a secluded location amidst Monaco and Nice. Guests with cars can take the lower corniche, RN 98, the scenic road that runs alongside the coast from Nice to Monte Carlo.

The picturesque route will take you to the hotel and other nearby places like St. Jean Cap Ferrat, Villefranche sur Mer, Beaulieu sur Mer, and the hilltop village Èze. The hotel offers free parking for its customers so you can easily explore these places, especially the ancient Èze village. Additionally, the beach Eze Bord de Mer is also nearby, and you can reach there within no time.

Moreover, guests arriving from the Nice Airport will reach the property within an hour, whereas the train station is only a 5-minute drive. In addition, Nice is just 11 km away while Monaco is 9 km from Cap Estel.

Style and Design

Le Cap, the hotel's original white and beige building with Doric columns and black and white travertine terraces, resembles a private château. This impressive building from 1899 offers a lovely contrast with its lush green and turquoise surroundings. However, the interior is a combination of classical and modern decor.

You can expect valuable antiques, artifacts, paintings, vintage tapestries, and expensive fabrics adorning the rooms. Moreover, other tasteful decorations like Churchill's writings add to its elegance. Additionally, contemporary furnishings impart a modern touch to the interiors.


Hotel Cap Estel's building has three sections, Le Cap, Le Parc, and La Mer. Le Cap is the oldest building, housing some of the most oversized suites of the hotel. On the other hand, rooms in different sections are relatively small; however, they offer unbeatable sea views. It is because Le Parc and La Mer are located at the farthest end of the peninsula and are built just above the water. Therefore, guests will be able to hear the symphony of waves crashing against the rocks.

There are 28 individually styled luxurious guest rooms and suites, all with private terraces or balconies facing the Mediterranean. All guest rooms are in neutral shades with stylish furnishings. However, the suites vary in size and design.


Suite 210, which is in the main building, Le Cap, is 200 square meters. It has high ceilings with large windows. The suite features cream and beige-colored decor accented with multi-hued embellishments. It has two bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms, a living room, and a furnished terrace.

Suite 410 is also in the original building. It features modern décor accessorized with expensive African artifacts and crimson-colored furniture. It has large rooms, a separate lounge area, a kitchen, and a spacious terrace offering panoramic views of the sea.

La Suite 110 is one of the two large suites at this hotel. It has beige-colored Carrara marble flooring with large French doors opening onto a sizable terrace. The terrace is lavishly furnished with somber-colored sun-loungers and white cushions. Also, there are chairs and tables to enjoy in-room dining while having panoramas of the ocean.

In addition, Junior Suites also have large terraces overlooking the sea. All rooms provide complimentary newspapers, large-screen TVs, DVD players, lockers, and air-conditioning. Furthermore, suites offer kitchens equipped with refrigerators, ovens, stoves, microwaves, and coffee makers. Moreover, free Wi-Fi is available everywhere.

Additionally, bathrooms are equally stylish and luxurious. They offer hair dryers, designer toiletries, rainfall showers, and heated towel stands. Some bathrooms have separate bathtubs along with TVs.

Restaurants and Bars

Guests will experience top-quality gourmet meals in a pleasant environment. Hotel Cap Estel's top chef Patrick Raingeard welcomes you at "Patrick Raingeard's Table" to enjoy his specialties. He is a Michelin-starred chef who offers Mediterranean cuisine. The menu is contemporary, consisting of seafood and other local dishes.

Patrick Raingeard's Table is located at the bottom of the building overlooking the hotel's manicured garden and the Mediterranean. The restaurant also has an outdoor terrace to enjoy an alfresco meal.

Another open-air restaurant and bar, "The Ficus," is located beside the pool. Here you can taste Mediterranean lunch under the shade of ancient Ficus trees. This summertime restaurant is a great place to share happy moments with your friends.

The hotel also offers a massive collection of vintage wines, including Petrus, Cheval Blanc, Chateau Margaux, and Romanée-Conti.

Spa and Fitness

The Cap Estel Spa offers beauty treatments and massages according to your needs. Experts at the spa combine the latest technology with traditional knowledge to devise customized treatments. In addition, they use herbal products made with organic materials which have no side effects.

There is also a well-equipped gym facing the Mediterranean. Guests who want to tone up their bodies can access it. The gym has state-of-the-art cardio exercise equipment along with free weights.

Services and Amenities

Guests at Hotel Cap Estel can enjoy several amenities. Staff is always at hand to oblige you. There is a small private beach with sun loungers. Visitors can go down the stairs to the pebble beach to laze around in the sun. Moreover, the saltwater infinity pool, heated during winters, is another spot to relax and swim. Guests who would like to swim under the roof can access their indoor freshwater swimming pool.

Furthermore, there is a tennis court. Sporty guests can try their hands on tennis. The hotel also features a private cinema room where you can watch movies. Also, there are conference rooms and a business center for corporate travelers to organize their meetings.


Cap Estel's 5-acre land jutting into the waters is an ideal spot to admire the allure of the French Riviera. You can get a panoramic view of the sea. Moreover, the amenities offered at the hotel further enhance its appeal.
