Saint Jean Cap Ferrat

Sights

   
Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild - Saint Jean Cap Ferrat
   
     

The whole peninsula offers a great network of trails from which exquisite vistas of the coast can be admired, from Nice and the Baie des Anges to the West to Cap d'Ail and Italy to the East. The little village of Saint-Jean is nested around a cove on the eastern side of the peninsula where an expansive marina built in the 1970's shelters some of the most luxurious yachts in the Mediterranean. Another path from the center of the village circles the promontory of Saint-Hospice, which forms the eastern arm of the peninsula. From the top the hill, a monumental (38 ft high) bronze Madonna near a rustic 17th Century oratory overlooks the Bay of Beaulieu. What was the artificial lake of King Leopold is now a modern zoo open year round featuring panthers and exotic birds.

Some of the estates on Cap-Ferrat have hosted a plethora of celebrities among others: King Leopold II of Belgium, Baroness de Rothschild, Charlie Chaplin, Rainier III, David Niven, Somerset Maugham, Jean Cocteau, Isadora Duncan, Winston Churchill, French Prime Ministers Maurice Rouvier and Raymond Barre and many more.

One of the best kept secrets of Cap Ferrat are its beaches. Small, secluded and with clean, turquoise water. Plage la Paloma south of St.Jean Cap Ferrat has been voted one of the ten best beaches on the Côte d'Azur. Another pleasant beach is Plage Passables, which faces Villefranche-sur-Mer.
