WALK ON CAP FERRAT
Cap Ferrat is of course in our selection of the most beautiful headlands on the Côte d’Azur.
“Lose your head to love” sang Jean Ferrat, a classic tune to hum as you walk Cap Ferrat, the peninsula that separates Beaulieu-sur-Mer from Villefranche. Often called the billionaires’ peninsula because of the imposing properties there. It is possible to walk right around the Cap Ferrat headland on the coastal footpath from Villefranche harbour to the village of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. Limestone coves, rural path, breathtaking views, Cap Ferrat is a delight for photographers. At its southern end is a lighthouse dating from the Sardinian regime of 1827, destroyed in 1944 but rebuilt in 1951.
