Saint Jean Cap Ferrat is one of the loveliest spots on the Mediterranean coast, a small town on a serene peninsula, flanked by a delightful pine forest, and graced with a vast number of magnificent old mansions and colorful stone properties. This is not a vacation destination for the public crowds. Rather, this is an exclusive spot to rent a luxury villa for a special getaway among the privileged aristocracy and international millionaire jet set.
There are countless beautiful luxury villas to rent in Cap Ferrat. Opulent properties nestle in the verdant countryside behind electric gates and high walls, discreet and protected from prying eyes, with lush gardens and, often, their own private beaches. There are even Unique Living offices nearby to make your stay as smooth as possible.
Attractions include historic mansions with sprawling landscaped gardens. The most notable of these is the old property of the Baroness Beatrice de Rothchild, which is surrounded by seven different unique gardens, houses an impressive collection of old furniture and objects, and boasts over 5,000 works of art. There’s also the former home of legend Jean Cocteau, which has been preserved and turned into a living history museum, along with a historic lighthouse, a small zoo and an interesting little seashell museum.
The three public beaches are small and intimate, with amenities, facilities and water sports available, and there are some fantastic coastal hikes weaving in and out of the various inlets. The town itself has many swanky cocktail bars and quality restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Le Cap and the idyllic portside seafood specialist Le Sloop.
Cap Ferrat is not a place for the budget traveler. It’s an exclusive and private vacation spot reserved for the select few, with the ambience of Old World charm but also full of glitz and glamour. We have some spectacular mansions and luxury villas to rent, tailor-made for the perfect retreat.
