We stayed at Chateau Eza from August 4-6th. I knew it would be a lovely trip, but the hotel exceeded all of my (high) expectations. Chateau Eza is a case study in how a hotel should operate. The concierge happily welcomed us upon arrival. Luggage: sent up the hill. Wi-fi: codes given. Tour of the hotel: given. Map of environs: presented, with recommendations for sightseeing. While we sat on the terrace awaiting our room we were served champagne in remarkable deco flutes and a small plate of olives and nuts. (And then they left us alone! It wasn't about them, it was about us. It was fantastic, and we don't experience that very much in the United States.) We just sat there, flirting, lost in the unbelievable view of Villefranche-sur-mer and beyond. One feels lucky atop Eze, but to stay in this hotel, to not have to leave at the end of the day, was a rare and luxurious treat. Our room, which was probably the most economical of the options, was fit for a princess. I couldn't get over the light coming in from the west as the sun set behind the Corniche. Our room looked like the setting for a Vermeer. I have stayed in many luxury hotels over the years, but this was truly special. The room felt historic but was immaculate, the bathroom was modern, with a gorgeous shower from the ceiling, my favorite L'Occitane amenities, and marble everywhere. It was silent, as there are only 12 rooms at the Chateau. We had dinner the first night at the Chateau, and the food and service were superb. When a hotel is run with such apparent love for its guests, it's unmistakable. You know it when you experience it. If you are considering a trip to the South of France, you must stay here, only if for a night. You'll remember it forever.
