The Grand Hotel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel

Emilie in Paris is back for a second season, which means fans of the hit series are eager to travel in reserve as the main character sets out on new journeys across France. One of those trips involves a historic hotel on the French Riviera, known as the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat.


Towards the end of the 1800s, King Leopold II of Belgium bought a land peninsula Рwhich would later become the land of the Grand-H̫tel du Cap-Ferrat Рand sold part of it to a company created by Mr. P̩retm̬re, who was the son of a coachman. In 1908, construction of the hotel began, with the creation of two wings, a dining room and a rotunda designed by Gustave Eiffel (the brain of the Eiffel Tower).

A few years later, Madame Ferras, widow and grandmother of the famous violinist Christian Ferras, bought the complex. After the outbreak of the First World War, the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat served as a hospital for several years.

Today, the five-star resort holds the “Palais de France” distinction from the French government and has 74 rooms, including 24 suites, including a 5,500 square foot presidential suite with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea and a penthouse. There’s also a Michelin-starred restaurant known as Le Cap Gastronomique – located on the hotel’s terrace – and a poolside restaurant called Club Dauphin Restaurant. Since 2015, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has managed the property (hence the name).
