Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat 06230

Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is known as the “Peninsula of Billionaires” It’s just a 20-minute drive from Nice and the Number 15 bus takes you from central Nice to the Port de Plaisance on the illustrious Riviera peninsula in about 35 minutes.

The Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat Pinisula in France

The famous municipality which is made up of about 500 luxurious villas and about 1,600 permanent residents, is drowned under flowers, palm trees, Aleppo pines, and olive trees—which are not native to the peninsula. The shrubbery which makes this home of the rich and famous so lush and lovely was actually imported by its wealthy residents who built the villas and landscaped them to the nines. It was once just covered in wild grass. Can you imagine it?

At the beginning of the 20th century, King Léopold II of Belgium owned an estate on Cap Ferrat and built several houses and an artificial lake. The “Villa des Cèdres” was sold in August 2019 for 200 million euros to a Ukrainian billionaire and businessman and it’s one of the luxury villas you can see from the window of the apartment.

Among the famous villas, there is also the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, donated to the Institut de France in 1934. Béatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild chose Cap-Ferrat to build her Tuscan-style palazzo in 1905 in this very scenic location. The luxurious home, the lush gardens and the scenery of the Cap is unforgettable.

Today Saint-Jean Cap-Ferrat has some of the most expensive real estate in the world, and continues to attract the rich and the famous.  The peninsula boasts of such luminaries as Rainier III, Somerset Maugham, Jean Cocteau, Lady Kenmare and Roderick Cameron, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Hubert de Givenchy, Rachel Lambert Mellon, Mary Wells Lawrence, Isadora Duncan, Winston Churchill, French prime ministers Maurice Rouvier and Raymond Barre. Scoring a home here puts you on the same level as such world renown characters.

This is just one reason this is such a special property—it’s just steps from the Port with a view of the sea. Restaurants line the port, overlooking an array of boats, from dinghies to sailboats, to cabin cruisers to luxury yachts.
