Is there a luxurious, extravagant, amazing, somptuous, elegant place for a holiday with high standards for travel and leisure, where everything is perfect: rooms, amenities, people, restaurants, weather, services, relaxation, beautiful landscapes, to comfort and cherish the mind, the body and the soul ?
Well, there is such a beautiful place and is real! I finally found the best destination for my next holiday! It’s in Europe, on the French Riviera and it’s outstanding! It’s the greatest, it’s absolutely the perfect holiday destination! It’s from the renowned Oetker Collection Masterpiece Hotels and it’s Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc from Cap D’Antibes, the most glamorous retreat of Côte d’Azur.
This is an exquisite hotel on the French Riviera where some of the most extraordinary personalities of this world spend their holidays or special events of their lives. The Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc belongs to the Oetker Collection. The Oetker Collection is managed by the Oetker family.
The Hotel is composed of 3 buildings:
The Hotel du Cap
Les 2 Fontaines
The main hotel, a Napoleon III château, is located on the southern tip of the Cap d’Antibes. The hotel offers 40 rooms, 68 suites and 3 villas, which are: the Villa Sainte-Anne which is the largest private villa, the Villa Eleana, in front of the property, and the Villa Les Cèdres. Owner Maja Oetker decorates the rooms and suites.
The hotel has 3 restaurants, including the Michelin 1-star Louroc Restaurant and 6 bars.
Oetker Collection hotels are true masterpieces located in the world’s most desirable destinations. Each property is a landmark and a timeless icon of elegance.
The present development of this marvelous place it is owed to the family of Rudolf August and Maja Oetker who in the summer of 1964, spotted Hotel du Cap atop the cliffs of Cap d’Antibes whilst sailing the Mediterranean. Five years later, in 1969, they purchased it and renamed the property Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc.
The Hotel is situated on Boulevard J. F. Kennedy, CS 10029, 06605 Antibes Cedex, France, and it’s the favorite holiday destination of celebrities around the world.
The Oetker Collection includes Le Bristol Paris, Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa in Baden-Baden, Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, Château Saint-Martin & Spa in Vence, The Lanesborough in London, L’Apogée Courchevel, Eden Rock-St Barths, Jumby Bay Island in Antigua, Palácio Tangará in São Paulo, The Woodward in Geneva, Hotel La Palma in Capri, The Vineta Hotel in Palm Beach, and more than 150 private villas around the globe.
For the Oetker family, hotel acquisition has always been motivated by a passion for properties with inimitable charm and unmatched locations. The end of the 20th century saw the purchase of a single additional hotel, Château Saint-Martin & Spa in Vence, France in 1994.
The word Masterpiece is absolutely the perfect choice to describe this wonderful places that are in the Oetker Collection Masterpiece Hotels. Actually, I can’t think of anything else from the first moment when this destination for holiday came into my world and how to get there.
And this amazing place from The French Riviera, Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc Cap D’Antibes is opened to the public from April 14 to October 15, 2023.

It’s an amazing fact that Maison Christian Dior created a perfume called Eden-Roc which is included in La Collection Privée. How does it smell Eden-Roc Eau de Parfum?
Let’s take a look at the description of this magnificent fragrance:
Simply named Eden-Roc, the new La Collection Privée Christian Dior fragrance is a vibrant ode to the most emblematic of luxury hotels along the French Riviera: the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc. The Eden-Roc fragrance is the olfactory image of this cape, whose exceptional locale evokes the lavish, sun-bathed atmosphere of this true Mediterranean paradise.
Eden-Roc is the expression of an irrefutably simple and natural beauty; that of a sea salt crystal placed on the tip of the tongue, of bronzed skin warmed by the sun, of the protective canopy offered by a pine tree in the south of France.
The fragrance unfurls salty olfactory notes, like diving into the Mediterranean Sea.
The Eden-Roc fragrance reveals itself in three colors: blue like the sea and the transparent waters of a divine pool, yellow like the sun stretching its rays onto the rock and leisurely bodies, green like the freshness of the pines standing tall in the hotel’s lush garden.
Sensual. Eden-Roc is a woody floral fragrance, a simultaneously vegetal and mineral composition, a fresh and luminous evocation of the pleasures of the French Riviera. Its sunny trail of white flowers, its marine notes and aromatic accords bring to mind the radiant beauty of this landmark cape on the Mediterranean.
Eden-Roc is a fragrance that mixes the freshness of the sea with the warmth of the sun’s beating rays and the shade of pine trees.
I composed Eden-Roc by imagining an arrival by sea. The salt, the sun, the light-colored rock, the lush plant life… Its trail is an olfactory image of this cape in an exceptional locale. The accords reveal themselves as the story of the Mediterranean: the smell of the sea, flowers and citrus fruit, aromatic scents and the image of pine trees in the south of France… The Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc is a landmark of luxury and fresh air, great refinement, as well as exquisite simplicity. A fragrance is alive when it is worn. Same goes for a place, when it is lived in. So long live the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc!François Demachy
