Saint Jean Cap Ferrat Yacht Charters
Visit charming San Jean Cap Ferrat on your luxury yacht charter in the French Riviera
Sitting on a peninsula just between Nice and Monaco, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is primarily an exclusive, high-end residential community.
One of the pearls of the French Riviera, its historical fishing port is now a yacht harbor on an idyllic covered bay. Steps away are terraced cafés and restaurants, where charter guests can sample local cuisine or enjoy cocktails at sunset.
Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat’s warm climate, lush vegetation, and proximity to both Monaco and Cannes make it a coveted yacht charter destination. Picturesque rocky beaches – including Paloma Beach, Passable Beach, and Cro de Peï Pin – are all a short distance away from the port. The rich culture and history will make you feel as if you’ve stepped back in time.
Things To Do and See in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat
Here are some of the most memorable sites to visit during your yacht charter to Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.
Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild
Located at the northern end of the peninsula, the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, also known as the Musée Île-de-France, is an Italian-style villa built between 1905 and 1912 on the request of Baroness Béatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild. The villa houses a large collection of art and fine furnishings. The grounds feature seven gardens designed in different styles: French Traditional, Florentine, Spanish, Exotic, Lapidary, Japanese, and Provençal.
This lighthouse at the southern tip of the peninsula was built in 1862 at the request of Napoleon III. The area landmark was not only created to guide and protect ships, it was also a meteorological observation station. Le Phare can be observed from the Cap-Ferrat hiking trail and Lighthouse Beach.
Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat
Built in 1908, this luxury hotel has hosted politicians, dignitaries and royalty. A white palace overlooking the sea from the tip of the peninsula, it has three restaurants offering fine dining in exquisite settings, and a vintage wine collection with some selections dating back to 1799. It is also home to the Rotonde, a music venue that hosts a music festival with a program spanning all genres.
