Tired and overrated
Chateau Eza is awful. Fake plastic wood floor, stains on the bedspread, tired decorating, peeling paint, really bad, yet very expensive. Our ocean view room turned into a mountain view room with a peak view of the Med. A lot of road noise and restaurant noise. SLH should be embarrassed.
Expensive But Worth It!
We arrived on the Cote d'Azur by cruise ship and so we had no need for accommodations in Eze (or Monte Carlo) but I was very curious about Chateau Eza, a luxury hotel with a price tag to match. It exudes charm and exclusivity which attracts a select group of customers and so when I quietly walked into the lounge to see for myself, I felt a little out of place.
The Château Eza was built 400 years ago within the ancient city walls of the 9th century village of Eze on its mountain perch overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. In the 20th century Chateau Eza was a residence of Prince William, son of King Gustav the 5th of Sweden.
Later the Chateau belonged to André Rochat, the Swiss owner from 1976 until the end of 1993; he opened his private residence to guests on a paying basis in 1985, after he completely modernized and renovated the premises. "All the construction materials had to be brought up the steep winding streets, 1300 feet above the sea, by donkeys which are still present to greet guests." Today, Château Eza belongs to The Stein Group, owners of other exclusive European hotels.
Unique Quality: There are only ten guest rooms, some of which are reached by stone passageways and climbing the stone steps and walkways which lead to the individual doorways of the chambers and suites. Standard rooms come with a Queen bed & mountain views. The most expensive suites come with Queen beds also, but have a private balcony or terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea!! Some have fireplaces and the very best suite has an indoor & outdoor jacuzzi!
All rooms have air-conditioning, bathrobes, beach towels, cable TV, DVD players, hairdryers, daily newspapers, and virtually every other convenience. It is clear that furnishing, linens, and other amenities are top-shelf and combined with the magnificent views, award-winning restaurant, the Chateau Eza is a place where memories are created.
Directions: Take the middle corniche to Eze and the Chateau Eza
Chateau Eza is just magical. It is perched on the top of a hill, overlooking the sea. We had an amazing room, with a fireplace, and a balcony overlooking the sea. There are only a few rooms in the hotel, which make s for a charming stay. It's a tough walk back up to the hotel at night, but it's worth the trip.
Directions: At the top of the village in Eze
Chateau Fit for Royalty
Luxury and spectacular views from the lofty "eagle nest" summit of Eze. The Chateau was formerly the home of Prince William of Sweden, and each of the ten guestrooms feature Oriental carpets and generous marble baths.

Top of the Hill Restaurant
While walking the mazey streets of Eze, it started to got a little drizzly, and it was lunch time, so we stopped in to this Michelin rated Restaurant nearly at the top of the hill. We had some lovely soup and a small Nicoise Salad each, with a glass of fine wine, it came to about $80 US---we were not displeased--the views even through the low clouds were beautiful, and the service was superb. Definitely recommend this place! Fresh Salad Nicoise
