Hotel General Manager
Franck Farneti, General Manager: After a university education in sales, marketing and advertising in Nice, he immediately entered in the hotel industry. He spent a few years working abroad, first in Brazil, then in England and Spain. Back in France, it was the prestigious Hotel Negresco which offered him his first position as Sales and Marketing Manager. His career then took him to the Carlton in Cannes where he spent 8 years as Marketing Director. But it was at the Hotel Juana that Franck Farneti was best able to express his own personal concept of the hotel business by working in a hotel on a human scale and providing tailor-made services.

Cap d’Antibes Beach Hotel
History & Story
At the beginning of the 20th century, large properties stretched down to the sea. Only one little path allowed the curious to discover Cap d’Antibes. In those days, two little huts built of stones surveyed the “Baie des Croutons”. These rudimentary buildings were used by the fishermen to store their nets. Today, old fishermen tell the story of the Baron, the owner of the cape, who allowed the fishermen to stay on in exchange of an annual “bouillabaisse”. When the Ferrante family acquired “La Maison des Pêcheurs” in 2003, the legendary site had been left to abandon for quite a few years. The Ferrantes invested 3.5 million euros in renovation. The aim was to use the original structure to create luxurious, versatile and very modern premises, designed to draw an international clientele with a high profile in search of leisure facilities. “The Ferrantes are very courageous to bring this outstanding site back to life, unfortunately abandoned for too many years.
The hotel has been entirely redecorated for the opening on April 2016 with the repositioning of Les Pêcheurs – 1 Michelin star restaurant facing the sea.
