Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is undoubtedly one of the world’s finest destinations. Since the turn of the 20th century, the global elite – royalty, movie stars and industry titans – have flocked to the blossoming peninsula, and it’s easy to see why.

Effortlessly glamourous surroundings combine with natural beauty and the mild Mediterranean climate to provide an unforgettable escape from reality.

Despite its charm, Cap Ferrat has managed to retain the elusive sense of serenity so often lost by areas of this stature. Tantalising glimpses of grand villas hidden behind high walls hint at the many famous faces and privileged people that spend their holidays there, but the Cap’s overwhelming ambience is one of undisturbed tranquillity. Spanning a humble 250 hectares, the area has an authentic character reminiscent of its former fishing village roots.

Just a comfortable stroll from the town are five public beaches – including the world-renowned Paloma beach – offering the excellent spot for sunbathing or a gentle swim. For those looking for a more active pastime, one of the many walking trails along the Cap’s coastline are likely to fit the bill. Cap

Ferrat also homes numerous museums that present a glimpse into the area’s rich culture and unique history, including Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild; the ultimate destination for interior and horticultural inspiration.

Positioned at the eastern end of the French Riviera, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat offers sweeping panoramic views of cobalt waters sparkling against snow-capped mountains – and, considering the area’s exclusive feel, it is surprisingly accessible. Cap Ferrat is just a short distance from Monte Carlo and Nice and within two hours’ flight time of Europe’s major capital cities.

To spend time in this alluring area is a treat in itself; to own a property there is a true luxury. And for those looking for luxury, you need look no further than Grevillia.

Set behind grand double wrought iron gates, this brand new waterfront development comprises three villas featuring 12 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms – and is guaranteed to charm all those who encounter it.

The master villa, Casa Grevillia, sits at the front of the property with a vantage point that provides enchanting views from every room. Natural and artificial lighting skilfully combine to illuminate contemporary open spaces with generous ceiling heights, perfect for both family living and grand entertaining.

Clean, modern interiors are implemented throughout, with a neutral colour scheme that includes Carrera marble, burnished copper and walnut flooring, as well as the occasional touch of colour in the form of a statement furnishing or striking lighting features.

The elegant aesthetic of Casa Grevillia is continued throughout both the ancillary villa, La Casetta, and La Serra, the guest house. The three properties are set conveniently close to one another while being detached enough to maintain a sense of privacy and independence.

Attention to detail extends beyond the inside of Grevillia’s residences. Stone paths guide the way through beautifully landscaped gardens featuring classical Mediterranean greenery; mature olive trees and swaying palm trees, clipped box hedges and wide areas laid to lawn.

The gardens and spectacular views of the marina and beyond can be enjoyed regardless of the season, with expansive windows and sliding doors allowing guests to enjoy the outdoors while reaping the benefits of relaxing within.

A glasssided infinity pool provides both function and décor, with aqua waters bringing a welcome splash of colour to mosaic tiling. The amenities available at the Grevillia estate are truly outstanding. Its spa and fitness area includes a sauna, Hammam and treatment area; its media room fuses a bar, private nightclub and home cinema to create the ultimate late night entertaining area; and its walk-in wardrobes allow for even the most expansive of clothing collections to be showcased, ready for selection.

Residents and visitors of Grevillia can relax safe in the knowledge that state-of-the-art technology is nimbly running in the background to ensure total security. Only those with registered fingerprints can access particular areas, while guardrooms and security monitoring stations provide spaces for understated surveillance.

Residents are able to enter and leave the estate undetected thanks to multiple private entry points, and an underground parking area ensures cars can be securely stored away.

Edward de Mallet Morgan, Partner in the International Residential team, has transacted on some of the world’s finest properties during his 18-year career. He says: “Grevillia ticks all the boxes of a super prime residential property; it has a cinema, spa and extensive [17-car] garage, to name a few of the amenities on offer. But it’s more than that.

The standard of finish and dedication to subtle perfection is extraordinary – couple that with its incredibly exclusive address, and you begin to realise quite how exceptional this property is. Whether you’re looking for a weekend getaway with your nearest and dearest, or a place to entertain a prestigious party of guests on a grand scale, Grevillia won’t fail to impress.”

Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat may be the world’s finest destination – and Grevillia may well be one of its finest properties.
