Perched at the tip of Cap d’Antibes, Villa Sainte-Anne is an exceptional retreat originally built in the early 20th century in the Italian Renaissance style. The exclusive villa belonged to the hotel’s founder, Antoine Sella, from 1916 to 1921 before it was sold to private owners. In 2019, Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc acquired the property to renovate from top to bottom and create an exclusive new offering: a hideaway steeped in history and refined art de vivre.
Villa Sainte-Anne will welcome guests to its magnificent accommodations from mid-May 2021.

The villa’s 337 m2 layout extends over four floors, surrounded by a private Tuscan garden that showcases breathtaking views of the Mediterranean and the Juan-les-Pins Bay.
President Managing Director, Philippe Perd, chose renowned architect, Luc Svetchine, to lead the villa renovations and landscape designs. The rooms have been restored and enlarged with an updated floor plan that saw the transformation of the central staircase. The new spaces breathe contemporary elegance, all while preserving the architectural foundations of a private home.
The height of timeless luxury, this stunning home features five separate bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, an expansive living room (39 m2) and a dining room (22 m2) for exceptional moments. A fitness room and spa including shower, sauna and hammam offer a complete wellness experience under the same roof.
The 2100m2 private Italian garden is an unlimited source of beauty and inspiration with its traditional stone walkways dotted with citrus and fragrant Mediterranean trees. White Iceberg rose bushes and multicoloured Lantanas surrounded by cypress trees are a tribute to the majesty of the region’s natural ecosystem. A patch of paradise is born where guests can revel in nature’s tranquillity. Every single detail has been meticulously considered to create a one-of-a-kind hideaway for spending memorable moments with family and friends, but also where each can find their own quiet corner for relaxation.
Culinary delights any hour of the day
Villa Sainte-Anne combines five-star hotel service with the advantages of a private property for the ultimate experience of leisure. A private butler is available to attend to guests’ every request. From lavish brunches and festive sunset drinks in the gardens, to lunches and candlelit dinners beneath the shade of the terrace’s 100-year-old oak tree, every space is infused with its own special magic. The Villa’s gourmet menu offers exclusive culinary experiences to meet any craving. And delicious dishes imagined for sharing, like the return of the local fisherman, gather everyone together for unforgettable moments around the table.
Inspired by the light-hearted and relaxed atmosphere of summer holidays, Villa Sainte-Anne celebrates the effervescent joie de vivre and inimitable pleasures of the Riviera. The interior design was created by Mrs Bergit Gräfin Douglas, founder of MM-Design Frankfurt, to elevate the spaces with refinement. Blending a curated combination of period furniture and natural materials such as cotton, linen and rattan, the style embraces the spirit of a holiday home with soft hues of champagne and opal that reflect the tones of the Mediterranean. The charming atmosphere is created with unique, custom-built furnishings for every room, such as coffee tables and gueridons by the famous interior architect Christian Liaigre, whose elegant style dominated in the ‘80s and ‘90s.The light grey woodwork, a signature design element by Mrs Douglas, blends perfectly with the natural fabrics in soft tones with hints of rose to create a serene atmosphere in every room.
The central staircase is lit by a “Luna” pendant lamp created by designer Alain Ellouz, offering an intimate and delicate light in the foyer.
A hand-picked selection of colourful artworks under the certified expertise of the company “Douglas Kunstberatung Gmbh “ completes an overall effect of beauty and harmony throughout the villa. “The Perroquet” by Robert Indiana (1971) complements the living room’s pastel palette with perfection, as does “Aquarelle Bleu Aqua” by Michael Pfrommer (2018). As a majestic whole, the villa is the pure embodiment of summertime’s endless poetry.
