“A piece of heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

This walk wends for a couple of miles. The surf is crashing on one side and luxury villas perched cliff side. One of the prettiest sites we have ever seen.

Do not miss this walk. Suspended over the sea with breathtaking views this path takes yo completely around the point Then have lunch in Le Port. Bring a bathing suit and towel.

“For breath-taking views of Mediterranean Sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Not to be missed, free of charge to walk along this rocky shore.
You can take as long a walk or as short as you please. You'll see people picnicking, hiking, swimming, playing in the water, romancing. Take in the sounds of the sea crashing against the coast line with a cool breeze in your hair.
The Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat has a private access, but locals just come for any afternoon.
Taxi rides in Nice are horrendously expensive, so make sure your visit will be worth it. You could easily spend 2-3 hours just watching the sailboats go by.

“A varied walk without too much effort!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Excellent views along the whole length of the walk. Dramatic coastal scenery, yet accessible along the length of it.

“This is a great walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We did the short walk around the Sentier after lunch in St. Jean, but combined it with Villa Ephrussi in the morning and Villa Kyrelos at the end of the afternoon. Quite a bit of walking.

The #81 bus back to Nice stops on the right of the Kyrelos driveway as you exit and only 20 minutes.

We met a lot of wonderful people on this trip, but one of the abolute best was a woman who had a little boulangerie/sandwich shop on a side street in St. Jean. I must say that everyone we interacted with on Cap Ferrat was very friendly and encouraged our feeble efforts to speak only French.
