150 Years and Counting: Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc’s Anniversary Season

When Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc reopens its doors, it will be to welcome guests for the hotel’s 150th anniversary season. Since 1870, seekers of sun, serenity and refinement have flocked to the legendary property on Cap d’Antibes. This season, a renewed gastronomic offering is just one more reason to book your Riviera getaway at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc when lockdown orders are lifted.

Throughout the past 150 years, the hotel has been known by a few different names—Villa Soleil, Grand Hotel du Cap, Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc—but the spirit and essence have remained resolutely the same. When August de Villemessant founded the original Villa Soleil, it was as a retreat for artists and intellectuals to replenish their spirits and gather inspiration. Today, Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc continues to attract the most famous names in art, literature, cinema, politics and business because of its exquisite hospitality and coveted address perched on the cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean.

The hotel’s iconic swimming pool is carved out of said cliffs with an infinity perspective met by the sparkling sea. Generations of bathers have luxuriated in the pool’s cool water beneath the warm Riviera sunshine. This season, Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc celebrates its 150 years of holiday pleasure with an exclusive pool float that is inspired by the lifebuoys that dot the railing above the cliffs and emblazoned with the hotel’s iconic typeface.
