Aristocrats, artists, politicians, or billionaire businessmen, these famous residents have chosen Hotel Royal Riviera on St Jean Cap Ferrat for its preserved environment, between pine hood and rugged coastline. The best way to explore Saint Jean Cap Ferrat are the walks that go through the whole peninsula. Here below our selection of 3 tours to help you discover our beautiful destination.
L’Isthme de St jean
This walk will guide you to the heights of the peninsula, between the bay of Beaulieu on the East side and the Bay of Villefranche on the West side. Walking among the native pines you will catch sight of amazing palaces and villas surrounded by beautiful gardens. Unmissable stop: the villa-museum Ephrussi de Rothschild (built in 1912), authentic symbol of the Belle Epoque splendour. Starting directly from the hotel 2h.
La Pointe Sainte Hospice
Au départ du port de St Jean, vous longerez un sentier côtier qui vous conduira à la Chapelle Ste Hospice, et à sa tour génoise, classée monument historique. En continuant, vous découvrirez l’anse des Fosses et l’Anse des Fossettes, de petites criques aux eaux turquoise. Au départ du port de St Jean : approximately 2h.
Le Tour du Cap
This last walk will take you until the land end, along the limestone cliffs and rocky sharp edges that surround the famous Cap Ferrat lighthouse. This majestic structure built by the Sardinians in 1827 was destroyed by the Germans in 1944 before being rebuilt in 1951. It is now a historical monument since 2012. Staring directly from the hotel: 2h40
