Space comes at a premium on the Cap D’Antibes, the exclusive French Riviera enclave anchored by the legendary Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc. Guests at the prestigious property are already spoiled for choice, with an enviable collection of rooms and suites in the main hotel building to choose from and two exclusive villas nestled within 22 acres of Mediterranean gardens for those who want more space. A new chapter in the long history of this iconic hotel starts this month with the opening of Villa Sainte-Anne, a self-contained five-bedroom hideaway tucked away near the gated entrance to the estate.
Acquired by the Oetker Collection two years ago, the villa has undergone a massive transformation courtesy of French architect Luc Svetchine, who has enlarged the rooms while preserving the original architecture, and put his stamp on a vast swathe of sprawling landscaped gardens looking out across the bay of Juan-les-Pins, home to a private swimming pool and terrace. Elegant interiors have been modelled by Bergit Gräfin Douglas, a member of the Oetker family and founder of MM-Design Frankfurt, who also reimagined the interiors of the main building and other hotels in the collection.
As well as elegantly appointed living and dining spaces and five en suite bedrooms each with their own dressing room, the villa is home to a private gym, sauna, steam room and Hammam. Guests will benefit from the services of a dedicated butler and five hours of chauffeur service each day, as well as exclusive use of a seaside cabana, daily spa treatments and a four-person cruise aboard the Aquariva Super ‘Eden-Roc’ each stay. Living in the height of luxury comes at a premium: prices start from €13,800 (US $16,500) per night, including full access to Hotel du Cap-Eden-Rock facilities and round-trip airport transfers.
