We stayed at the Chateau Eza on this our second visit to the Cote d'Azur. We were smitten with the hilltown of Eze during our last visit and committed to staying at the Chateau if we returned. Our commitment paid off in that we experienced a level of service, hospitality, elegance and ornateness that will be difficult to match. The Chateau, which used to function as a vacation home for the Prince of Sweden some time ago, provides stunning views of the Cote d'Azur and the intoxicating Mediterranean 400 meters below. Breakfast on a balcony hanging over the cliffside above the mediterranean sea was a breathtaking experience as is dinner at the Chateau's restaurant.
We stayed in a sizeable two story suite with a stonewalled massive bedroom with a balcony providing amazing views, a seperate sitting area and a very elegant bathroom with a sunken bathtub and glass enclosed shower for my husband and me, while the kids stayed on the first floor in their seperate bedroom, foyer and seperate spacious bathroom. Every night we arrived to have hot tea and jummy treats on slate trays waiting for us. The decore, lighting, TVs, WIFI and other amenities in our suite left nothing to be desired.
While dinner at the five star restaurant is expensive, the quality of every course and the choreographed service and the artistry of the meal presentations is unforgetable. The service by the Hotel staff, particulary Stephanie and Elitsa was outstanding - they made wonderful dinner recommendations, secured reservations, ensured that our car was ready for us upon request, provided us with umbrellas in anticipation of some rain, and had staff ready to assist us with our 4:30 am departure. Staying here is a dream come true and an experience which we hope to repeat soon.
