Royal-Riviera Hotel, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat
The five-star Royal-Riviera Palace Hotel is well over a hundred years old. It present itself today as a hidden paradise perched on a rock, among cypresses and olive trees. The place is defined by a harmonious balance between sea and garden, classical grand hotel atmosphere and fresh design, as well as the staff's talent to live up to the unique hospitality and at the same time to take care of this extraordinary place. A relaxed summer residence in an enchanting natural setting. Perfect for families with children and modern travelers who dislike rigid etiquette and exaggerated luxury.

One night for two in a double of the lowest category during the off-season will cost approx.:

The place takes exception to the stereotype of Côte d'Azur glamour. We appreciate the relaxed and warm atmosphere and the staff's honest smiles.
Some guests actually play football with the hotel staff in an almost family-like spirit. Watch out, though, if you don't belong!
