Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc
A 19th-century mansion and two private villas surrounded by 22 acres of gardens on the tip of the Cap d’Antibes peninsula. The grounds include a saltwater pool, seaside spa, private landing pier, and clay tennis courts. While you're there, don’t miss the hexagonal Fondation Vasarely, on a hilltop ten minutes from the hotel, for more than 40 eye-popping installations by the father of Op Art.
