Luxury Cap d’Antibes Property for Sale
The Cap d’Antibes is one of the South of France’s most exclusive promontories situated equidistant from Antibes and Juan les Pins on the Cote d’Azur.
Cap d’Antibes property for sale is of the most sought-after on the French Riviera. The ‘Cap’ as it is known locally, has become synonymous with luxury and glamour since it was discovered by the English aristocracy in the late 19th century.
Charmed by the forested spit of land which at that time was little more than a mound of sweet-smelling pine surrounded by blue sea, the English gentry began to lay down their roots and built many of the grandiose villas which can be found on the Cap d’Antibes today.
Here, overlooking the Iles des Lérins on one side and the striking Old Town of Antibes on the other, you will find some of the finest examples of Belle Époque architecture anywhere along the French Riviera.
Ornate and palatial, the Cap d'Antibes villas are for the most part hidden behind lavish walled gardens offering those who purchase property in Cap d’Antibes the upmost in privacy and security as well as some of the best views you will find on the Cote d’Azur.
It is no doubt these views, and the Cap’s proximity to the vibrant town of Juan-les-Pins, which attracted a number of famous musicians and writers to the region over the decades including Frank Jay Gould, F Scott Fitzgerald and Jules Verne. In fact, the French writer is understood to have penned his hugely famous book ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ whilst staying at his Cap d’Antibes villa – Les Chenes Verts – which stills stands today.
Fast forward more than one hundred years and the Cap d’Antibes is still an extremely popular destination for the rich and famous, many of whom own property here. The majority of villas on the Cap d’Antibes are set in sumptuous gardens with their own swimming pools while a few coveted addresses are set right on the waterfront and are known as ‘pied dans l’eau’ properties.
Perhaps the most famous address on the ‘Cap’, however, is the world renowned Hotel du Cap Eden Roc – a magnificent establishment set in 22 acres of parkland – which has welcomed some of the biggest names in Hollywood over the last century and continues to do so today.
