Chateau de la Chevre d'Or
Ranked #1 of 7 Hotels in Eze
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

Chèvre d'or was the most amazing place I have ever been to in my life! This unique hotel set within a picturesque little medieval village clinging to the top of the hill was like Disney land for adults. Our 'room' was actually a series of rooms set into the side of the hill over two floors. We had two sunny balconies with breathtaking views over the sea below and the mountains to our left. Our marble and rock bathroom was extraordinary. Everywhere we went within the hotel and village was a photo opportunity. The food was to die for. We ate in both restaurants...and it's a funny thing... but when you eat food that good you don't mind how much it costs. Make sure you have a glass of champagne on the balcony...the glasses are special chèvre glasses. The Fragonard perfumery in the village is way way cheaper than in Australia so buy up big! Enjoy :)

We've been traveling world wide for many years. It's not easy to impress us. Having said that, the Chateau de la Chevre d'Or is equaled (in my estimation) by only one other hotel in my many years of experience (the other was in Santorini). What they shared was a level of sophistication and service well above most five star hotels, and secondly an unmatched vista that provides a truly unique experience just looking out your panaromic picture window.


We arrived at the mountain village of Eze, which overlooks Nice from a perch about 1,500 feet up in the air. It is an awesome sight to behold. We’ve been here before and there are no cars allowed, it is pedestrian walkways throughout the village (which was once a fortified castle).

during our first visit to Eze several years ago, we laughed at the small kiosks on the steep small road leading up to the village which had a DONKEY tied up inside. I asked what that was about and was told they used the Donkeys to carry luggage up to the hotel. I didn't think it was so funny after trekking up that path as a tourist. Steep and heavy going.

This time we vowed to LIVE in Eze for a visit. Instead of parking in the public parking lot way below and trekking up, we drove our new car up that restricted pathway into the village (the lower part) and squeeze our car into their tiny private parking lot, situated on a cliff, behind a gate guarded by three young valet's. With their help we maneuvered our car into a tiny spot (backwards). they unloaded our luggage (heavy) and it disappeared flawlessly being born by someone who must have been amazingly fit. We registered and met a very personable staff at the desk (a five minute hike up into the village to the reception), someone younger and stronger than me carried our luggage to our room.

The Chateau Chevre d’Or (the Golden Goat – I KNOW – sounds refined, doesn’t it). The hotel has over the past many years purchased individual homes within the village walls and refurbished them into lux living spaces. So the hotel’s rooms are scattered over the Village.

We were given suite 39 and after following a young man (they are all immaculately dressed in beautiful suits) up the path, then around a bend, up another steep incline, up a couple flights of stairs, then another inclined path we arrived at our room. Unmarked, it looked like a nice doorway set into an alcove. He opened the door into a TINY sitting area, with a TINY couch and art work. I thought (while gasping for air from the climb), “what is this” – there was a divider – one of those large removable screens at the back of the room in front of what appeared to be a space behind it. I thought : “OUCH, there’s a bed back there and this is the smallest room on earth”). He pointed to a steep stone staircase and led us up Two flights of stone steps up with recessed lighting to the second level, the bathroom (HUGE Jacuzzi tub, immaculately tiled and as big as some hotel rooms we’ve seen in the US), Another flight of stairs (two switchbacks each – the suite was stacked straight up) to the bedroom, a beautiful space with giant picture windows from which you could see miles in every direction across the rooftops below, then another set of steps up to the closets and mini bar. The suite was incredibly BEAUTIFUL- I guess they thought I looked like I could use the exercise. I’d rank it right up there with our room in Santorini at the Mystere resort/Spa for breathakingly beautiful views.

The bedding and linens were the finest we've encountered in Europe which made sleeping very comfortable.

Shortly after arrival, a waiter appeared at our door with two welcome drinks. I am allergic to mango and when he told us that the drinks contained mango I politely refused mine, he insisted on running down the hill and fetching another.

Every staff member we came into contact with during our stay was abundantly happy to do whatever it would take to make our stay enjoyable.

Particularly helpful was their exceptional Concierge Phillipe. Who went so far as to phone the next hotel in our itinerary and tell them IN ADVANCE our preferences. All in all they treated us better than family (depending on your family, that could be a good or a bad thing).

the evening of our arrival It was lightly raining. All of the paths within the village are steeply inclined up or down. We went out for dinner at 7pm (no one eats dinner before 7 in France and most restaurants don’t even OPEN until seven).

We had individual umbrellas and, even though there was a steady stream of water cascading down the steep pathway They must have coated these pathways and their steps with something, because despite the water, it wasn’t slippery.

We climbed all the way to the top of the village (seemed like 10-15 minutes) and ate dinner at a very picturesque French / Italian restaurant named "Le Nid d'Aigle" located at the highest point of Eze just before the entrance to their public gardens.

The food was incredible, a mix of french (my wife had duck in honey sauce, prepared and served immaculately and presented beautifully, I had pasta - obviously freshly hand made pasta - it was delicious).

A visit to Eze is always a physical adventure. I felt humbled about my half hearted grumbling about having to CLIMB everywhere to reach anything when I saw two people maneuvering these tight pathways using white canes (indicating that they were blind). THAT was inspiring and caused me to cease grousing about the physicality of the environ.

As we were departing we walked down to their mini parking lot and their valet's helped us load our car with our cases (magically appeared all the way from the third floor of our suite half way up the mountain).

It had rained torrentially during the middle of the night and our car was covered with dust and mud from the rain and wind. The valet wouldn't allow us to leave until he had cleaned all of the car windows. First time I'd ever seen that at a hotel and GREATLY appreciated.

My only regret about this stay was that I couldn't stay longer. Next time we're staying for at least a week.

Room Tip: I only saw one room and it was amazing. Our suite was not the finest, nor was it the worst by categ...

From the moment we arrived we were impressed with the good will and service of the personnel. The 'porter' was particularly helpful arranging for a quick meal, despite it not being the done thing in a 2 michelin star hotel, because we had a meeting... Absolutely delicious meals with most of the menu temping us...
Very cozy bar with splendid sea views, the garden is beautiful too but being on a cliff you need to be in good shape or not have kids to explore it all...but worth it!
The suite was wonderful with large bathroom - v romantic. We shall return!

As a regular world traveller it is unusual to find such a fabulous find. First of all the welcome from the car parking and reception, to the 'reveal' of the super room - amazing views.

We had a lunch on the terrace, food was sublime, as was the service. Try the Gewürztraminer - to die for.

After a night out in Nice we returned to have a drink on the terrace set high above the coast and was absolutely stunning. I actually didn't want to leave! A must do at least once for all, now we have been there we will be regular guests.

Stayed here to celebrate our engagement, and so glad to have chosen to do so. While the town is very touristy, you won't care when you're knocking around in your beautiful room (particularly one of those with a terrace or balcony, overlooking the endless terraced gardens and down over the sea).

The food served in the restaurant was amazing: interesting, beautiful and always delicious. The waiters and sommelier were extremely friendly, kind and knowledgeable (sometimes rare that you get all three).

We'd head back there to celebrate any special occasion. If you're thinking about it, you've got to say yes (else you won't know what you're missing).

We had the great pleasure of staying at this spectacular hotel April 3-6,2013. Had a beautiful suite overlooking the grounds of the hotel and sea. The hotel grounds are many levels of terraces with sculptures and fountains and even a waterfall. The town is very charming and quaint. We had dinner at their world renowned restaurant and it was a true dining experience. Expensive and completely worth it. The views alone are worth it for this hotel. The staff is superb, knowledgeable, and extremely nice. I know the French have a reputation for being rude, but we certainly never encountered it here or anywhere in France on our vacation. You can take a bus to Monaco for the day, 1 Euro and about a 15 minute ride, super easy and Monaco is worth it for the day. Loved evrything about this hotel!!
