Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat

For many years known as The Bel Air, this famous hotel was constructed in 1908 as a place wher aristocrats and royals and business moguls could spend the winter in a mild climate and surroundings worthy of their great wealth. As the years passed by, the hotel became a year round destination as people ceased to think of the Cote d'Azur just as a place to go in winter. Today the hotel is a hub for the beautiful people, all year round.
