Where heaven and  Blurring the sea on the horizon is probably the best place on earth ... ARCH ON TOUR takes you to outstanding architecture in the diverse region between cliffs, port cities and medieval villages along the Côte Azur from Cannes to Cap Martin. The tour describes a specially composed route to extraordinary villas from Pierre Cardin's futuristic hideaway Palais Bulles and the labyrithic terrace gardens of the brutalist villa complex Arson to classics by le Corbusier and Eileen Gray to brand new buildings, including Foster + Partners yacht club in Monaco. A special highlight is the elegant setting of the minimalist and extravagant Villa Golden Eye, where an exclusive cocktail reception on the private terrace lets you experience the sovereign location with a view over the port of Monaco. Summery Mediterranean nightlife on the glittering beach promenade in front of our Grand Hotel in Cannes and in glamorous Monaco will cheer up the evenings. Finally, a morning walk on the rocky coast of Cap d'Ail and lunch in the opulent Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild on Cap Ferrat will refresh you.
