An experience offered exclusively to guests of the Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat, a Four Seasons Hotel, travelers will experience a private French Riviera home for an evening, complete with Michelin-star dining and historic works of art.

The villa, perched on the Mediterranean shoreline, once belonged to socialite Francine Weisweiller and served as a gathering place for celebrities, writers and artists, including Coco Chanel and Pablo Picasso. After a personal tour of the home and its artwork, guests will enjoy maître d’ service of cocktails and French cuisine customized by a Michelin-star Chef Yoric Tièche, complete with Mediterranean views on the villa’s terrace.

The room itself contains 660 pounds of chocolate and took over 300 hours of work to complete.
