Grand Hotel du Cap-Ferrat

While on vacation, we had the opportunity to make a brief sojourn to Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat on our drive from Cannes to Monte Carlo and have lunch at this fabulous hotel, the Grande Hotel Du Cap-Ferrat. Ironically, after returning home and going through my mail, I saw this layout in my June/July "Interiors" magazine and had to post these beautiful pictures by Tim Beddow. He certainly captures the elegance and comfort that this hotel exhales due to the all-white interior design by Pierre-Yves Rochon. This glorious palace by the sea is truly magical. I would love to have stayed at this quiet, tranquil, sophisticated retreat. I highly recommend a stop-by if you are traveling through the south of France. If you are even more fortunate, please make a reservation and stay a couple nights. This hotel would make a superb honeymoon or anniversary/milestone birthday destination. Talk about Living in Your Finest Environment:)))!

Simple floral arrangements. I like the use of these vessels and how the flowers lean off the side!
I always learn something new on a vacation!
Another lobby scene
Walking to the casual poolside restaurant, La Veranda (there is a gastronomique restaurant that has a Michelin star, Restaurant Le Cap).
