INTRODUCING OETKER COLLECTION'S
NEW COFFEE-TABLE BOOK
What makes a Masterpiece Hotel? The answer is perhaps subjective, but in the foreword for Living the Dream, actor Richard E. Grant sums it up nicely. "A great hotel", he says, "is a dream-like escape, and the experience of returning is like revisiting a lifelong friend, again and again."

In 1964 Rudolf August Oetker was sailing past Cap D'Antibes with his new bride, Maja, when the legendary Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc came into view. They were dazzled by a fleeting glimpse of this Belle Époque mansion amid umbrellas pines, and below it the sun-kissed pleasure zone where, from the 1920s onwards, the likes of Picasso, Hemingway and Dietrich lounged by the pool or swam in the glistening blue waters of the bay.
