The bay of Eze is one of the most incredible places to explore in the South of France, with vibrant beach clubs, stunning mountains dropping straight into the crystal clear waters and impressive yachts at anchor. The bay goes from St Jean Cap Ferrat, the second most expensive real estate market in the world, only after Monaco, to the Cap d’Ail beach of Mala.
Villa Ephrussi – St Jean Cap Ferrat
The villa Ephrussi is one of the highlights of Cap Ferrat, one of the most iconic pieces of real estate from the Belle Epoque period. The pink villa is surrounded by lush gardens, hosting cocktails and dinners for select guests during the summer. Perusing the gardens you will enjoy an oasis of calm and tranquillity, before heading back to the port, where you will find plenty of traditional restaurants and exceptional seafood.
Beaulieu sur Mer
A favourite of the Monaco crowd, Beaulieu Sur Mer is one of the most desirable locations on the Riviera. With a Casino facing the water and a stunning new restaurant with a stunning traditional interior, the Circé, the town is truly worth a visit. Stop by the port to enjoy one of the hot spots of the Riviera for decades, African Queen. The restaurant in the port of Beaulieu has been settled there, it seems, forever.
Eze wouldn’t be Eze without its beach club. The most vibrant beach club of the riviera sees the Monaco elite party on Saturday like no tomorrow, with rosé in one hand and lobster rolls in the other. The entertainment rivals the world’s finest clubs! All this in Chic-Bohème decor feet in the water, a few minutes walk to some of the finest villas in Eze.
Arriving by boat to the Cap Estel is one of the most Riviera experiences. With a private pontoon ideal to disembark in style, the hotel is a true heaven on earth. Nestled down a small-cap with 270° views of the water, you’ll enjoy a true luxury retreat. Enjoy the pool and wellness spa to relax in the utmost setting and truly enjoy a day out.
One of the finest spots to drop the anchor of a Monaco boat rental, Plage Mala is surrounded by two cliffs diving in the crystal clear waters. The two beach clubs rival each other, serving gourmet cuisine in an elegant setting. A small cave just off the Northern coast can be reached by any swimmers, making the day more of an adventure.
