Le Grand Jardin | Ultima Cannes | Cannes

Gloriously Secluded Island Sanctuary in The French Riviera

Ultima Cannes Le Grand Jardin is a rare triumph: a hidden sanctuary on the Cote d’Azur that’s eco-friendly, era-defining and rooted in the region’s rich history.

It’s the sole private property on the Île Sainte-Marguerite and has been thoughtfully curated to ignite all your senses. Picture sweet-smelling citrus trees, tranquil and trickling natural pools and a 14,000m2 botanic garden that calls for slow strolls in the Mediterranean heat.

There are 12 bedrooms across five separate buildings in the three-and-a-half-acres property: the Governor’s House, three cottages, a guest house, and the old fortress tower. Savour a moment in the sun-beaten days while exploring the garden plantation, wine cellar, and library.

The Concept
While moments from the flashing lights of Cannes, Ultima Cannes Le Grand Jardin is a sanctuary with its own story to tell. This spectacular island estate offers complete privacy from the outside world and views that can't help but make the heart happy.

Arrive by boat to this 13th-century, private walled estate and enter a haven fit for royals. You will be in good company. Île Sainte-Marguerite has long allured the world’s elite, with previous owners including Louis XIV and the 15th-century Dukes of Guise.

Many believe the infamous Man in the Iron Mask, rumoured to be the brother of Louis XIV, was once held captive in the island’s fortress. Legend also has it that Napoleon once grazed his horses in the garden while cannonballs were prepared elsewhere on the island before being fired at passing ships.

You might not notice it’s happening. Sink into a relaxed state of mind as soon as you arrive at the gates of Ultima Cannes.

It’s been designed to promote your wellbeing, from the elegant and airy rooms to the hot stone walkways that lead from the tranquil pools to the olfactive botanical garden rich in serotonin-boosting life. And, true to Ultima style, there’s also a hammam, sauna and various treatment rooms for you to prioritise you.

Life doesn’t get any sweeter than at Ultima Cannes.

Wake up and smell the roses, strolling through a bountiful garden to handpick ingredients for harvesting before each meal. Our sprawling fruit and vegetable beds are hemmed in with olive and lemon trees — and that’s just for starters. Seafood is caught from the waters just on the other side of Île Sainte-Marguerite. Everything you could ever need is right here. And it could all be prepared at a moment’s notice.

Dine al-fresco on long tables adorned with roses and irises plucked from the gardens or tuck into citrusy cocktails at the sun-drenched outdoor bar.
