Pretty as a postcard, Château Eza clings to the side of Eze's ancient rock walls more than
1,300 feet above the Mediterranean Sea. Such a dramatic setting promises a remarkable experience, and this is one hideaway that definitely won't disappoint. With just 14 guestrooms
- most with fireplaces and private balconies, and all with modern amenities - there's an enchanting, intimate atmosphere. The surrounding cobblestone streets don't allow for automobile traffic, so quiet prevails. Dining is a regal experience; spend an evening in the elegant dining room.
