“A magical stay in a magical place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We had booked this place because of it's membership with Relais & Chateaux, as we usualy travel with them and are never disappointed.
we arrived while it was raining as hell, with a real thunderstorm. From the moment we arrived by car, the porters directed us to the reception with umbrellas and took care of our luggage. We found them back, a little later, in our room. This was quite a job, as the car park was quite far from the reception area. This magical hotel is located in a medieval village in the hights of Eze Village. We were escorted to our rooms through the small alleys of the village. Magical !! Our room was a suite, so more than enough space, as was the bathroom, with jacuzzi bath and walkin shower.
To forget everything about the bad weather, we went to the bar and enjoyed a great bottle of Champagne with home made miniardises. Absolutely wonderful.
In the morning, when opening the curtains, oh my god, a stunning, breath taking, view. The rain from the day before was gone and left a blue sky with a beautifull sun shine. Oh wawh !!
The view is just undiscribable...
We left our beautiful room to get a energizing breakfast and there again we could enjoy the same incredible view.
Everything to make your romantic stay perfect.
After our breakfast we enjoyed our walk through the property taking stairs up and down, all with the same view and sunshine.
To every nice thing comes an end, so also to this and we had to leave.
We will be back, but for a few days longer, to enjoy the view, gastronomy of the restaurant,
Oh, I forgot to mention the high class of the staff. They went out of their way to help us out with everything. They were never in a rush and took the time for everything.
Many thx to all the staff for an unforgettable stay.

Room Tip: No tips needed, every room is great. If you want to spend a bit more, take a suite.

Antonio the concierge is absolutely awesome! The staff with their happy smiles always made our day. I don't know where people got the idea that the french are snobs because this whole trip we were treated so well. I thoroughly enjoy the stay and if you can afford to stay at this place don't hesitate. It's worth every single dollar. The place has so much history and the architecture is one to admire. Sitting in the garden and enjoying the view, reading on your balcony, chilling in the spa and working your way around the village. The adventure is worth the weekend.

Room Tip: Spend a little extra for a sea view it's worth it!

This place is, in a word, magical. Tucked into a medieval village high atop a cliff with breathtaking views of the glistening Mediterranean. The room was a unique multi-level arrangement with an upstairs bedroom with windows opening out to the ocean. The terraced gardens and pool are immaculately kept and, thanks to the small number of rooms, usually empty. The staff are worthy of the hotels five star status as well. A sunset dinner at the hotel restaurant, perched at the highest point, is a must.

We stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary and it was absolutely spectacular. The hotel room was two story and had every amenity and was beautifully appointed. The staff couldn't have been nicer. It is a 5 star hotel and earns every one of them. The views from our room as well as the pool and gardens are incredible. We had drinks out on the terrace and dined at their 2 Michelin star restaurant that evening--a true culinary experience. One we will never forget. We fell in love with tis quaint and charming town and plan on returning next year for a much longer stay.

Room Tip: Reserve a room with a sea view--it is worth the upgraded cost.

My husband and I had the most remarkable stay. We have traveled extensively throughout France and this place is at the top of the list (maybe tying with a few others). From the moment we were greeted, we were made to feel like royalty. The care to attention, the beauty of the grounds, the on site Michelin starred restaurant and the quaint village "on the grounds" made it the perfect place for a few nights. I'm into gardens and this place takes the cakes. There are sculpture gardens and at the top of the village, what they call an "exotic garden." (It's a tropical desert garden). NB-This is not part of the grounds and there is a minor charge to get in. The staff was perfect; the room was very nice. There's only one very important thing to understand about this place - if you have ANY hip, knee or walking issues, this is on steep property; even our room had a spiral staircase so the bathroom is on a different floor than the bedroom. The room was a 3 floor suite - not the greatest layout, but very cool with amazing window views from each floor - well worth it if you're physical condition can withstand it. We absolutely loved it!

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.
