The Cap d’Antibes ranks among the priciest places on Earth. Its glittering beaches (such as silky, sandy plage de la Salis) and stately homes (like Villa Eilenroc, where Woody Allen shot Magic in the Moonlight) are a short stroll away from Villa Fabulite. Open since 2014, it’s a – relative – steal. Franco-Mexican manageress Angelina welcomes guests to her 15 rooms with Asian-inspired decor; these ring a swimming pool and orchid garden. Local chef Cyrille – formerly of London’s Le Gavroche – serves up local octopus for €15 a platter at lunch and dinner. Angelina can also arrange a rented paddleboard, kayak, racing bike or shopping tour quicker than you can say “rosé by the pool”.
