In 2020, Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc celebrates an exceptional milestone: its 150th anniversary.
The secret of its allure, as guests and friends will attest, resides in a distinctive alchemy of natural beauty, traditions upheld, and an unrivaled ability to keep right in step with the times. A humble writers’ retreat turned haven for royalty, aristocrats, artists, patrons and discerning families, this stately mansion nestled in a pine forest on the Cap d’Antibes, the most exclusive corner of the French Riviera, has endeared itself to generations and occupies a unique place in the collective imagination.
Over the years, successive waves of visitors — celebrities, tastemakers, friends — have considered the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc as their home away from home, a retreat for private vacations with loved ones. This is just as its owners, Rudolf and Maja Oetker, imagined it would remain always, from the moment they first spotted the property while sailing through the Bay of Cannes. Their genuine love of place and people is what imbues the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc with its timeless appeal, season after season. Bon anniversaire, and many happy returns!
