The Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France, will be managed by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, as of May 8, 2015.
The hotel is located on the French Riviera, across 17 acres of gardens. The hotel has access to the Mediterranean Sea, three restaurants and a spa. The guestrooms were designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, who also designed Four Seasons' Hotel George V.
"The iconic Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat is synonymous with the sophisticated elegance of the French Riviera sought out by discerning travellers since the late 18th century," said Jonnah Sonnenborn, Head of Real Estate, Access Industries. "Four Seasons was the natural choice when selecting a management company that shared our commitment for preserving the unparalleled elegance of the property while delivering unrivalled service and luxury."
"France is one of the most visited countries in the world, and the opportunity to expand our footprint in this market with another iconic property in addition to Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris is wonderful news for our brand and for guests who have long waited for a Four Seasons experience on the Cote d'Azur," said Allen Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. "We share a passion for luxury and setting standards for service excellence and we look forward to being part of the next chapter in the history of this palace, and to welcoming guests this spring at the Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel."
