Beaulieu-sur-Mer, a Mediterranean fantasy…
A charming little resort ideally located on the Mediterranean littoral, Beaulieu-sur-Mer is only a few kilometres from Nice and Monaco.
Delightfully situated between mountain and sea, Beaulieu-sur-Mer enjoys a privileged micro-climate with exceptional sunshine, giving it luxuriant vegetation, century-old olive trees, and palm tree-lined shorelines.
Beaulieu-sur-Mer is a symbol of Provence and its culture, with its narrow lanes and typical markets, the Sancta Maria de Olivo chapel where numerous artists expose their work, the Berlugan Heritage Museum. The town’s architecture also takes you back to the Belle Epoque and includes the Villa Kerylos.
This exceptional villa, completed in 1908, the only one of its kind, is a faithful reconstruction of a sumptuous Ancient Greek residence. Beaulieu-sur-Mer has a large world-famous marina with room for nearly 800 boats, making it one of the busiest harbours on the Cote d’Azur.
The quality of the sea is excellent, the beaches at La Petite Afrique (Little Africa) and la Baie des Fourmis, as well as the small picturesque harbour round off the portrait of this charming Mediterranean destination.
La Reserve de Beaulieu, luxury hotel on the French Riviera is located in the heart of Beaulieu, close to the marina and the Villa Kerylos.
Situated only 18 kilometres from Nice – Cote d’Azur airport, it can also be reached by private boat or shuttle from Monaco, thanks to its small private dock.
Beaulieu-sur-Mer and surroundings…
Beaulieu-sur-Mer makes an ideal starting point for many excursions, to name but a few:
- the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, at Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. A magnificent Venetian palazzo nestling in a French style garden overlooking the Mediterranean, this little paradise was the brainchild of Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild during the Belle Epoque
- Eze medieval village. Built on a rocky outcrop overlooking the sea, its picturesque lanes and its exotic garden are decidedly worth a visit
- the Val Rahmeh botanical garden, at Menton. An exotic haven full of colours and scents totalling 700 species from around the world…
Beyond Cap Ferrat and the harborage of Villefranche-sur-Mer, lie Monaco and Nice, famous destinations in their own right. The Principality is a shopper’s paradise and a haven for lovers of casino games, while Nice, famous for the Promenade des Anglais, is also known for several respected museums (the Musée National Marc Chagall, the Musée Matisse, the Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain.)
