Stay in a Medieval village with breath-taking views of the Med at this unique five star hotel.

 

Chateau Chèvre d’Or is nestled among the cobbled streets of the picturesque village of Èze.

Just half an hour’s drive from Monaco, it’s a world away from the bright lights and bling of the principality.

The spectacular gardens are filled with sculptures, fountains, waterfalls, scented flowers, herbs, trees and shrubs.

You could sit and watch the sea and the yachts sailing in the harbour below for hours.

 

 

Choose from three restaurants, including the two Michelin-starred gourmet restaurant La Chèvre d’Or.

Here the emphasis is on local produce with lemons from Menton featuring heavily on the menu.

For more casual dining, there’s Café du Jardin or the terrace restaurant Les Ramparts.

The latter is a great place to linger over lunch while taking in the view of Cap Ferrat.

Or, treat yourself to a massage or yoga in the gardens.

Feeling energetic?

Follow in the steps of the great German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche and take the 45 minute hike down to Èze Bord de Mer. Apparently it inspired him to write the third part of Thus Spake Zarathustra.

Then, it’s back to the hotel to enjoy a glass of something chilled as you watch the sun setting over the Med.
