We visited Cap Ferrat- Great place even during off-season. If the weather is nice the views are remarkable. The place is full of history and ‘old money’ beauty. Next time we’d like to sail to Antibes to have a look what’s going on over there! Can not wait for the next trip

I live here and enjoy the fact that there are wonderful places to sail and hike nearby. The traffic in the city center is quite hectic, but nevertheless with a train you are quickly out of town. The chateau is very enjoyable to walk in in the afternoon and in the morning
