Palais Maeterlinck is located in between the glamorous towns of Monaco, St Jean Cap Ferrat and Cannes. It is also near other small villages. Famous for enogastronomy, the region is full of Michelin-starred restaurants such as Mirazur, Le Louis XV Alain Ducasse, Chantecler, and Chèvre d’Or etc. Many visit the historical hotels for drinks and food, with favorites being Negresco, Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat, Hotel de Paris and its American Bar. Côte d’Azur is also dotted with vineyards and wineries, and is known for its rosé wines.
Historically a hotbed for renowned artists, the area also has several contemporary museums dedicated to the works of celebrated artists: one for Henri Matisse, another for Chagall, the Picasso Museum in Antibes and you can even visit Renoir’s house and studio in Cagnes-sur-Mer. Jean Cocteau once wrote that he was born several times – including once in Villefranche, a pastel-hued fishing village. You can stroll through it – or the museum dedicated to his work, in Menton.
The owners also recommend visits to Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in Cap Ferrat (a pink mansion constructed by Baroness Béatrice de Rothschild, with a formal French garden), and Palais princier de Monaco (an 1191-built Genoese fortress with a tattered history).
Concerts, music and operas are also popular in the region, and there are several venues whose calendars are worth looking into: the owners recommend Opera de Nice, Opéra Garnier de Monaco and the Nice Jazz Festival.
