We start the week with the exceptional news of the reopening of the legendary Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d’Antibes. This legendary place that has evolved carrying stories, memories, and anecdotes of the personalities that visited throughout the decades features newly designed areas by renowned Brazilian Architect Patricia Anastassiadis.
From the owners of the French Riviera legend, Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc comes Oetker Collections’ first Italian outpost, Hotel La Palma, on the eternally glamorous island of Capri. The property has since opened its doors to world-renowned personalities. Novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald, who spent many summers at Hotel du Cap-Eden Roc in the 1920s was inspired by it when writing about his Hotel des Étrangers featured in the novel Tender is the Night.
“The shades of blue and green that respectively recall the colour of the ocean and the flora of the French Riviera are imprinted in my memories ever since my childhood. My family and I used to visit a destination near the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc because my uncle used to live near to Cap d’Antibes. This is why, for me, this project is all about memory and its many layers. It is a tribute to the intellectual abundance of the hotel’s history that it is as representative as the architecture of the building itself. With this project, we are developing the archeology of today by digging into the recollections of a vivid past that is still present in every single corner of the property.“ – Says Patricia Anastassiadis
The view of the alley that connects the main property to the iconic hotel’s pavilion is incredibly impactful. Anastassiadis recalls walking through the path towards the sea while capturing the sound, smells, and colors of the surroundings.
