The Belles Rives began life as a private villa in the 1920s with prominent personalities such as Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald amongst the property’s famous visitors. Situated in an enviable location right on the sea-shore of the exclusive Cap d’Antibes close to Juan-les-Pins, today, the Belles Rives is a 42 bedroom family run hotel and a fabulous venue for weddings on the French Riviera.
Wedding cocktail receptions and dinners at the Belles Rives hotel take place directly by the sea on a manmade beach-like terraced area. The beach terrace has a maximum capacity of 300 people but is ideal for groups of between 50 and 150 people. The beach terrace also has a tent to offer protection in case of rain which has a seated capacity of 70 people with a dance floor area and 100 without a dance floor.
The Belles Rives offers various wedding ‘packages’ ranging from 140 Euros per person depending on the type of menu that you decide to go for. All packages include Champagne and canapés, main dishes, a cheese course, wedding cake, wine, mineral water and coffee. The per head price includes chairs, tables and table decoration (candles, flowers, menu holders) as well as one nights accommodation for the Bride and Groom on their wedding night. More à la carte tailor-made proposals are also available.
For wedding ceremonies at the Belle Rives, either the same beach terrace or the Terrasse de la Passagère with a capacity of 140 people seated can be used. An additional fee applies for the exclusive use of the Terrasse de la Passagère. Timings for the start of ceremonies at the Belles Rives in either space depends on the season.
Rates and conditions for weddings at the Belles Rives change slightly depending on the time of year. For example during high season (15 June to 15 September) the time limit for music is midnight as opposed to 02.00 during the mid season.
