Villa Rose-Pierre at Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat

The Resort: A fixture on the French Riviera for more than a century, the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat sits on the tip of a towering promontory between Nice and Monte Carlo. The 74-room resort—which reopened last year after a 14-month, roughly $95 million renovation that included the addition of a new wing and spa—consists of classical buildings tucked into subtropical foliage and overlooking Mediterranean bays filled with megayachts. A glass-encased funicular carries guests from the hotel down to a private beach and Olympic-size saltwater swimming pool.

The Villa: Villa Rose-Pierre is as private as it is pink, occupying its own 2.5-acre landscaped plot within the Cap-Ferrat estate. Bordered by a pool, a pool house, and a synthetic-clay tennis court, the villa itself measures almost 6,000 square feet and has four bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom and a balcony overlooking the sea. (The home has two additional bedrooms for staff.) A full-time butler and seven other dedicated staff members stand ready to assist you with the 40-person party you might throw on the villa’s marble patio, or the casual barbecue you might host in the backyard.

The Highlight: Taking the elevator to the rooftop terrace at dusk for a kir royale and a romantic dinner served as the moon shines over a tree-framed seascape.

The Price: From about $36,000 per week for as many as eight guests. +33.4.93.76.50.50, www.grand-hotel-cap-ferrat.com
