Mediterranean magic

THE EXPERIENCE

The dreamy French Riviera, also known as the Côte d’Azur, is one of the most glamorous and inspiring places in Europe. With the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean providing its signature blue backdrop, this magnificent area of the world has always been a treasure trove for artists in search of sun-soaked inspiration, culture, cuisine, and overall joie de vivre.

our host hotel

Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel

Our opulent host hotel, Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel is the only hotel in France outside Paris to have been awarded the elusive 5-star Forbes Travel rating.

It is a veritable design and style icon of the Cote d’Azur. Less than an hour from three of France’s most sophisticated cities; Nice, Cannes and Monaco and just 30 minutes from the International Airport at Nice, Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat exudes classic French glam.

Its design pedigree is impressive. First opened in 1908, the 74-room hotel has been the home of Chanel, Cartier, Matisse, Picasso, Chaplin, and Elizabeth Taylor, to name drop just a few! Sections of the hotel were designed by Gustave Eiffel (yes, as in the Eiffel Tower!). The recent redesign of guest room interiors is the work of renowned interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon.

“Authentic inspiration for next-level events can only be experienced in person. Discovering history, art, culture, taste, sight, and sounds can’t be realized on Pinterest. Immersive experiences are the key to creating tomorrow’s unique event design, install, cake design, stationery, event menu, etc.

I’m beyond thrilled to host and network with a like-minded group of event pros who are excited to travel the world in search of art, design, and culture.”

Our Itinerary

What to Expect

WE’ll explore

From our breathtaking basecamp and host hotel, Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel, we’ll have three full days to set out and explore the places where many of the legendary artists of the 20th century lived and worked. Renoir, Matisse, Picasso, Chagall, Cocteau, and so many more iconic artists were inspired by the light, colors, atmosphere, and Eden-like landscapes of this region.

We’ll enjoy private and exclusive tours of iconic museums, villas, and cultural institutions.

We’ll visit medieval cities known for their perfumeries, flowers, Rosé, and al fresco dining. We’ll make our own perfume, try our hands at pastry-making, and painting!

WE’ll INDULGE

We’ll happily indulge in the gastronomic magic of the South of France. Whether we’re dining al fresco under the stars, or in a fine-dining restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean, we’ll get to know each other over wonderful Provençal meals.

We will also enjoy an intimate pastry lesson from the incredible Florent Margaillan,  and a phenomenal farewell dinner (with a few fun surprises!) at Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel.
