Cap Estel is the most secret of Riviera hotels. Jutting out from a peninsula of land in Èze-sur-Mer, below the raised village of Èze, its brass gates ward off beady paparazzi. While starlets prefer Cannes, older A-listers check in here (from 510€ per night). That said, casual visitors are welcomed with open arms to Patrick Raingeard’s Michelin-starred restaurant, which commands the glorious seafront gardens. Food becomes theater by way of zucchini flowers on verbena ice cream and crayfish atop Gewürztraminer wine jelly. Just beware the initial offer of Champagne, which clocks in at 25€ or more per glass.
