Cap Estel, Éze, France

By Will Grice

Tucked away on its own five-acre peninsula on the Cote d’Azur, beyond a wrought-iron gate, lies the super-secluded Cap Estel Hotel. The hotel has long called to those who want to enjoy their vacation away from prying eyes, thanks to its totally isolated location, discreet staff and high-security measures. The fresh, white-stone mansion is pure South-of-France chic; it is surrounded by pretty, fragrant gardens and lush greenery, and enclosed by the sparkling sea on three sides.

Within, there’s a lovely spa and indoor pool, cinema, billiard room, Michelin-starred restaurant and elegant sitting rooms, but you might find it hard to stay indoors. Soak up the views from the outdoor seawater infinity pool or alfresco cafe.

Top suite: Suite 110 from $7,000 per night

Bay watch: Head to the private stony beach beneath the terraced gardens — take a picnic and relax on a sun lounger as you watch boats sail by.
