Considered for more than a century a source of inspiration by writers and poets, Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc has always been intimately bound to the artistic world.
This well preserved heritage reaches its apogee every year during the Cannes International Film Festival. Since it was first launched in 1946, the film festival and the hotel share an intertwined story. The Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc is close enough to cross the water to the Croisette by speedboat, yet still offer a peaceful sanctuary for those in search of privacy.
Immortal screen idols such as Charlie Chaplin and Marlène Dietrich, contemporary stars including Cate Blanchett and George Clooney, and the world’s leading film directors, have lived memorable stays in the iconic property.
Personalities all around the world enjoy the high style but they also take advantage of the Cannes International Film Festival to put charities under the spotlight, such as the amfAR gala dinner. Hosted yearly at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, this renowned fundraiser for AIDS research is one of the most coveted tickets of the festival, and is always a glittering evening filled with generosity.
