“this hotel has been on my bucket list for years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

I have wanted to stay at this hotel for years. We decided to book for a couple of nights at the beginning of October and kept our fingers crossed for good weather. We got a taxi from Nice airport, which dropped us and our bags, at the entrance to the hotel grounds. Our bags were taken care of and we were directed to the hotel reception through the gardens. As we walked up the entrance drive you reach the first set of railings which gives you your first views down on to the mediterranean. With the sun shining and a blue sky and sea, the view could not have been better. Walking on through the gardens, the number of statues multiply alarmingly. Looks like someone got a job lot of animal statues from a Hollywood set. Too many and, IMHO, rather tacky and kitsch. However, we checked in at reception and had our welcome drink on the terrace before heading to our room. I didn't have the highest of expectations for the room as we had booked the autumn package and I assumed we would have a small village facing room. I was so delighted when the door opened and we entered a bright room with a wonderful terrace (2 loungers and dining table with 4 chairs) with stunning views on to cap ferrat. As the weather was so gorgeous whilst we were there, we were able to make use of our private terrace. The bathroom was open to the room - although there was a room screen which could be used if you wanted. In the corner there was a large jaccuzzi bath, a separate shower unit, double sinks, and in a "cupboard" was the loo. Lanvin products, fluffy towels, nice dressing gowns and slippers. Breakfast was include which we had on the terrace both mornings. We never heard a sound in our room from people outside or other guests so we slept very well at night. The housekeeping was excellent - very efficient.

We really enjoyed our stay and I am glad we booked the Chevre d'or. I had been tempted to book instead Chateau Eza, so whilst in Eze we wandered along to have a cocktail there. The terrace where we had our drinks was very close to the main road and we could hear road noise the whole time. There are hotel bedrooms just above that terrace so I would not have liked to have been in one of these rooms on account of the road noise.

On our last day we wandered around the gardens and by mistake went into the private gardens of what must be the principal suite (there was noone in the suite and someone had left the gate open so we hadn't seen the private sign). It looked lovely - small private infinity pool and jacuzzi exploiting the fabulous views. maybe next time?

Another bonus was the late check out we were offered. Our flight was not until 6pm and we were able to keep our room for no extra charge until 3pm which was great. After checking out & settling the bill, we had a final glass of wine on the main terrace of the hotel taking in the breathtaking view whilst we started to plan our next trip to this region of France.

We were incredibly lucky that the weather was so lovely as we were able to see Eze at its best but without the vast number of tourists that must clutter up the place in peak periods. I definitely wouldn't recommend going here in the height of summer as the climbing up and around Eze is tough going and must be exhausting in high temperatures. We visited the Exotic Gardens, which were worth going to & the Fragnonard Factory (taking in the short tour) which we also enjoyed.

Room Tip: a room with a terrace & view is a must

Two years ago, my husband and I visited Eze and loved it there. This year, 5 friends and I visited Eze and, again, I feel in love with the area and each of them did too. Although we didn't stay at Chateau de la Chevre d'Or we spent the day in Eze and we had wine and hors d' oeuvres in the Chateau garden overlooking the sea. It was a magical part of our day. The staff was so accommodating and the view was beyond breath-taking.

As I write, I can still feel the experience.

We have just returned from 5 nights at this amazing hotel. It was our first taste of this part of France, and it met all our expectations, and surpassed some.
This very delightful hotel has charm and romantic views by the bucket load. An ideal honeymoon destination (if you have deep pockets)!
It is worth paying extra for a suite, as they have the best views (over the bay to Cap Ferrat).
Don't go here if you are on a budget though, a bowl of soup (all be it a very good soup) in the main resteraunt is €115!!!!!!!!
We loved this hotel, and will return. The staff are very good and the whole experience was memorable.
It's also worth a walk to Chataeux Eze for a lovely evening meal.

Room Tip: Don't expect this to be like a normal single building hotel. It is a mix of village houses and t...

We loved our stay at the Chèvre D'or.
We were absolutely blown away by the location, views and rustic atmosphere.
My husband wishes he could have a bathroom man cave like the one we had in our room with the double spa bath, gorgeous toiletries, fluffy bath towels and a complimentary candle from Galimard.
We enjoyed lazing on the deck chairs, cocktails on the terrace and dinner and breakfast at Eden.
I spent a beautiful time exploring and photographing the rose gardens.
It comes at a price but goodness me we enjoyed it!

Stayed here for two nights in seaview junior suite with terrace. Very pricey, but worth it. Staff is exceptional and Eze is an amazing medieval village. The rooms are all unique because they are spread out throughout the village.
Each one has it's own quirks (I stubbed my toe nightly on the step in the bathroom) but they are charming and the views are unreal.

The restaurants are very expensive and to be honest I had more fun dining at "La Taverna" in the village than dropping 1k plus per couple in the formal restaurant. The other Restaurant Eden has a great view, and that's what you're paying for.

Concierge service helped us arrange our further travel in France.

All in all a magical place and one where we will return.

So this place was absolutely beautiful! The views are incredible all the way around the hotel. The manner in which this hotel has incorporated itself into the old terraced landscape is breathtaking!

Our room was spectacular. The hot tub was built into the cliff wall and so we had one entire wall of our bathroom made of nothing but old rock. The rest of the room, both upstairs and down was marble.

The staff was incredibly nice and pleasant for the most part. The valet staff and room service staff were incredibly friendly.

Our only complaints had to do with the price of everything else. $82euros for a room service breakfast which consisted of breads/croissants, yogurt, orange juice, coffee, and two small omelettes.

At the bar, the tiniest of champagne cocktails were $25euros each! They were both gone in a few disappointing sips. Lunch and dinner were equally as expensive and we decided to stay away from the restaurants. We ended up buying our own wines from the souvenir shops 100meters down the driveway and sipping them at the pool and were perfect with just that.

Overall it was worth it to spend the money for the views and opulence, but after that the prices were nothing short of exorbitant.

Another gem along the Cote d'Azur tucked high away from the mainstream. Located within the walls of Eze Village; this beautiful oasis has breathtaking views of the Rivera but boosts an art gallery amongst it's gardens and property. Unlike Chateau Eze, you can park right at the base of the property and has a swimming pool. The stunning restaurant canalevers out over the edge where your eyes just gazed up and down the coast watching the spectacular yachts and mega yachts come and go along the Med.

Room Tip: There are several to choose from but definitely overlooking Med.
