Chateau Eza

Nestled on the brow of a rocky hill on the Mediterranean coast, right at the heart of the ancient village of Eza, Château Eza is more than 400 years old. The historic village on the Cote d'Azur huddles between Nice and Monaco and is at a brief distance from Monte Carlo. 

Located in Provence, France, Chateau Eza sustains its vintage essence to date. It welcomes the guests with an olden stone staircase that spirals up towards the entrance. This leads to a perilous climb that is both thrilling and nerve-wracking. 

You will spot exquisite art galleries displaying lovely works of art. Also, there are fashion boutiques selling dresses that encapsulate the French style along the climb. Moreover, a casual stroll from this boutique hotel awaits the Jardin Botanique d'Èze, an extensive botanical garden crowded by numerous cacti and spiny plants.

Fragonard perfumery tails the resort and is most visited by international tourists wishing to purchase a French relic in the form of an opulent perfume. Besides, adventurists with a heart for daring expeditions gravitate naturally to this exotic hotel. The resort hides ancient history within the confines of its magnificent stone building.

Historical Value

Built over four centuries ago, this luxury hotel on the French Riviera was home to the Prince of Sweden in the early 19th century. On his visit to France in the early 1800s, Prince William of Sweden was mesmerized by the beguiling sights that corralled the village Eza. Deeply moved by his visit, he returned to purchase the property and chose this as his official residence. 

The Prince believed that the natural landscape, culture, and beauty of the place would furnish his writing prowess and enhance his creative abilities. Many years after the Prince abandoned the Chateau, it was bought by an affluent diplomat who officially turned it into a resort open for guests.

Interior Design and Infrastructure

The interiors are massive and offer many spots for inquisitive exploration. Though the external building has hardly undergone any ramifications over the course of so many years, the interior rooms, lobbies, and halls project a contemporary vibe through lavish furnishings and wall artwork. 

At the same time, you will instantly find your mind cascading through medieval eras upon catching sight of large conventional fireplaces. These fill the room with the crackling sound of flames as they continue devouring wood. The rooms are lesser in number; however, relatively larger and secluded to different regions of this massive castle. 

The seclusion further offered by individual sets of staircases for respective rooms gives a sense of privacy. Also, they conveniently allow one to enjoy solitude without encountering any disturbances. 

Rooms and Suites

The Chateau accommodates a total of twelve rooms. Though having similar dimensions, each room is distinct in its interior design, furniture, views, and additional furnishings. Additionally, most chambers have traditional fireplaces. These are stocked with wood daily and keep your room sufficiently warm at all times. 

In fact, guests particularly enjoy having a taste of the olden era by staying in rooms that exactly mirror the design and equipment of the classical ages. The resort has a Deluxe room with a queen-sized bed and large interiors. There is also a spacious bathroom for couples on a romantic honeymoon.

The bathroom also features a massive spa tub for two people and has all the necessary toiletries. The private balconies forming an extension to the room overlooks the lovely village of Eza. This offers guests a cozy place to spend their evenings. There they watch the sun paint the clouds a rich-orange shade as it dips into the horizon.

Six of twelve rooms, also called the 'Junior Suites,' have mesmerizing sea views. Salty earthen air also fills these chambers. Guests also find themselves frequently reclining on the terrace, enjoying the soothing weather.

Restaurants and Dining

Dining at Chateau Eza is a wondrous experience that will form the best of your vacation memories. Rest assured, you will find yourself reminiscing about the resort's signature Gourmet Restaurant. It sits cradled in the most enchanting locations of all hotels on the Cote d'Azur. Closeted amidst green valleys bearing bright blossoms and ferns, the restaurant greets its guests with panoramic views that leave one in utter awe.

Moreover, expansive balconies skirt an indoor dining area with glass screens that offer the French Riviera's outside views. Besides, the clear blue sky overlooks the blue Mediterranean Sea. Guests especially relish sitting on the wooden benches that dot the outdoor terraces and the crisp dusk air ruffling their hair. Besides, there is the livid sky hanging over their heads in all its mythical being as they enjoy the restaurant's finest French and Mediterranean cuisines. 

The captivating view from the resort justifies that it was once a residence to the Swedish Prince. One could scour the world and find very few breathtaking locations as such.

The restaurant's chef, Matthieu Gasnier, is an experienced professional in culinary arts. Trained under Michelin-starred chef Dimitri Droisneau, Gasnier worked at the Chateau for more than three years now.

Moreover, the head chef, Axel Wagner's, expertise in Mediterranean cuisine has enabled Gourmet Restaurant to reach its pinnacle. The unique taste and flavors of dishes continue to win the hearts of tourists from around the world.

Lunch and Breakfast

Lunch at the Chateau is mostly offered al fresco, as it provides guests with an opportunity to enjoy the breezy French weather. Breakfast is in both American and Continental cuisines and is taken at terraces flanking the Cap Ferrat. 

Cap Ferrat enchants the Chateau Eza visitors with its sweeping romantic views. This unfolds as they find themselves spending long hours under the open sky in the cobble-stone balconies gorging on delicious meals.

Additional Services and Facilities

Guests remain delighted with the professional services of the staff and concierge team at this luxury hotel. Besides, valet service is available at all hours of the day and safely deals with transport vehicles. 

For tourists with heavy luggage, porters are sent to escort their baggage and belongings to their rooms. Room service is also available 24/7, with the staff always at your beck and call. For sports aficionados, the hotel also features a tennis court stocked with all the essentials.

In a relative comparison with luxury hotels worldwide, Chateau Eza offers an outstanding historic venue experience on a relatively reasonable budget.
