“Excellent hotel in a gorgeous town”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We stayed 2 nights in a sea view room with a terrace. The quality of the rooms and accessories (towels, bed linen etc) was all really high. Our room was really pretty.
The service was excellent and really friendly
We parked in Cagnes sur Mer and were picked up and taken to our car by the hotel as we needed to which is great.
Haut de Cagnes is a tiny but very pretty hilltop town. Not a lot to do but admire the beauty of it, but it is gorgeous and definately worth a visit.

Room Tip: worth having a terrace to relax on as there's not a whole lot to do in the town.

Dear Scoorie,
We would like to thank you for the great comment you left following your stay at our property. Château Le Cagnard has been completely renovated with great care, so our desire is to offer the best services and comfort including excellent bedding, towels and accessories of high quality mixing the antiques with the modern comfort in the rooms. Thank you also for leaving a room tip. Haut-de-Cagnes is a Medieval village with a square, lots of different restaurant to explore as well as the Museum Grimaldi and the contemporary Jewelry Gallery. There is the Renoir Museum only 5 minutes away and so is the beach. Furthermore the town is very well connected to Nice, Cannes, Grasse, Monaco and other nice places to explore through public transport. We look forward to welcome you again very soon. Kind regards Frida Ivarsson and the team at Château Le Cagnard.

When we arrived at Chateau Le Cagnard we were delighted to see what a wonderfully sympathetic job had been made by the new owners when renovating this 13th century building.
Much care had been taken to keep the character and history but with amazing new twists. Our junior suite had a lounge, large bathroom and a bedroom which housed a very comfortable bed with top quality bed linen and towels. Views from the balcony fantastic. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. The staff were smart and very helpful willing to drive us to the train station on our first excursion. The village is very interesting, roads very narrow (I certainly wouldn't drive).however a free and frequent bus service takes you to down town where trains and buses transport you around this wonderful part of the world. We loved our stay, thank you everyone

Le Cagnard lived up to its reputation. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Laura came to pick us up from the automatic parking le Planestel and take us by very narrow roads to the hotel. Do not try to do this yourself. It would have been better to leave the hire car in the car park Sainte Luce which is not too far away. Le Planestel cost us 19 euros to leave the car overnight compared with 6.60 euros in Sainte Luce.
Our room, Cossetini, was very comfortable. It had TV, safe, coffee machine, fridge and sundry nibbles. You can see it and the bathroom for yourself in the traveller's photos. The bedlinen was clean and crisp, the towels thick and fluffy.
We ate each of the two nights of our stay in the hotel restaurant, which was elegant. The food was first class. The breakfast was a veritable feast.
The village needs to be explored on foot. There is lots to see and to enjoy. We especially liked sitting in the sun at one of several cafes on the Place Grimaldi and enjoying a drink, whilst we people watched.
At the end of our stay, Gregory took us down to the car park to collect the car and then led us through the town to the start of the motorway, for which we were extremely grateful. We had the impression that nothing was too much trouble or us as guests.
I should love to go back again and can thoroughly recommend it.

We arrived at the Hotel at 10 pm from Nice Airport and as other reviews noted the streets to the Castle are narrow. We were greeted by Gregory and he showed us to our upgraded suite - Chapel Klien, which had its own private access and a gorgeous balcony and view of the riveria (which we were to find out in the morning).

We ate in the square in La Village, the owner asked were we the guests that were delayed and even though they were finished serving food she put together a delicious chautucerie board for us.

The service, room, views and surrounds of the hotel were all amazing and we would certainly return here.

Tips - do not take a taxi from Nice airport to the hotel as we were charged €50 and thought it was a scam but when we rang the hotel they said that was a normal price. I would recommend that the hotel notes this and recommends that people take the bus from Nice airport to St Augustin station and get off at Cagnes Sur Mer station where they can then avail of the 44 bus which brings you right up to the hotel.

Also, as the hotel is up a steep hill, but well worth it for the views, I would recommend that the hotel considers arranging its own transfer for guests in the morning (hourly from 9-11) and in the evening (hourly from 5-8).

The receptionist kindly took us to the train station when we checked out and I think they do this frequently.

All in all we had a wonderful stay in this magical hotel!

The staff at Chateau Le Cagnard could not have been more wonderful. They went out of their way to accommodate us in every way possible. From quickly picking us up at the parking lot, to giving us a glass of wine in the evening, to helping us plan our travel day, everyone was great. We had a fabulous room with a large terrace with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Great day trips to Antibes, Eze, and St. Maxime. The town combined medieval charm with modern restaurants, art galleries, and places to explore. We would definitely return.
