Cap d'Antibes, Cap d'Ail, Cap Ferrat, Cap Martin, Cap de Nice... Legendary or lesser-known, the caps of the French Riviera are unique spaces along the coastline where time seems to stand still in the face of the intoxicating beauty of the places.

The most beautiful caps of the French Riviera

A cap refers to a piece of land that extends into the sea. The French Riviera is home to several caps; benefiting from remarkable natural assets, they are highly sought after by buyers in search of excellence and unobstructed views of the sea.

Cap d'Antibes

Wild, rocky, and green, this famous peninsula offers a magnificent walk along its coast lined with Aleppo pines. On the southern tip, the Notre-Dame de la Garoupe chapel offers a sublime panorama of the Mediterranean. Cap d'Antibes is home to one of the most famous villas in the region, Villa Eilenroc, and boasts high-end residences and mansions.

Cap Ferrat

Cap Ferrat is home to Saint-Jean Cap Ferrat and the bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer, surrounded by lush nature thanks to its pine forest in the center. Two superb routes allow you to appreciate all its natural riches. Nicknamed the "peninsula of millionaires," the area offers one of the most high-end real estate markets on the French Riviera.

Cap d'Ail

Located west of Monaco, Cap d'Ail boasts an idyllic natural setting that has been popular with celebrities for over a century (Cocteau, Greta Garbo, the Lumière brothers, the Prince of Wales). The site is home to several contemporary villas and Belle Époque mansions, as well as a superb interpretive trail that stretches from the beautiful Mala beach to Marquet beach.

Cap Martin

Cap Martin welcomes you at the end of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. It is home to many famous residences whose architecture and wonderful gardens enhance the beauty of the place.

Cap de Nice

Located on the Mont-Boron massif, Cap de Nice offers a breathtaking view of the harbor and the city. It is home to beautiful residences and some of the Belle Époque villas that made the reputation of Niçoise architecture.
