If you’re a regular visitor to the Côte d’Azur, you’ll already be familiar with the hilltop village of Èze. A tourist mecca, it’s home to a number of wonders nestled in a dream setting. You can discover them by spending a few hours on site, or better still, by staying in the village. The Château d’Eza is the perfect place to do just that.
A special place in Èze
To visit Èze is to take a trip back in time. You can wander the medieval streets and marvel at the stone houses. You can stop off to discover the baroque church, or bask in the superb exotic garden with its exceptional views of the mountains and sea.
The village is also home to numerous art galleries and restaurants for the enjoyment of its visitors.
To get the most out of the village, we recommend staying for a few days. It’s the perfect way to disconnect from reality and relax in an exceptional setting.
If you’d like to book local accommodation, we recommend the unique 5-star Château d’Eza.
As its name suggests, before it was a hotel, it was a castle. In 1923, the Prince of Sweden, visiting the region, discovered the village on the mountainside. He succumbed to its charm and decided to buy a plot of land and all the dwellings it housed to make it his home: the Château d’Eza (Eza is the Italian name for the village). The prince had to part with it, and the place went through a number of ups and downs.
It was bought back and transformed into a hotel. Today, it houses 12 rooms in pretty little cottages. Lovers of distinctive atmospheres will appreciate the medieval suite with its old stonework. Each room is air-conditioned and has satellite TV, a DVD player and Wi-Fi access. The decor, inspired by the Louis XIII style, is warm and chic. Beautiful terraces offer a unique view of the surrounding area, particularly the bay and the Mediterranean that stretch out at the foot of the village. Staying here gives you the impression of being out of this world, in a luxurious nest.
The site has thought of everything. It offers guests a 1-star restaurant, run by chef Axel Wagner since 2007. You’ll be able to treat yourself to inspired, fresh and light Provencal cuisine. Enjoy surprising artichoke muffins, an upside-down veal tart or a lavender-frosted carré.
For even more enjoyment, the château has private access to the Anjuna beach.
Coming from abroad? Our staff speak English, Russian, German and Italian.
Getting to Eza Castle
Èze is easy to reach from all the coastal towns on the Riviera. The hotel is located on rue de la Pise. If you wish to return to your accommodation from Nice airport, it will take you around half an hour by car. The hotel reception is located in the stables, a few minutes from the entrance to the village. You can take the freeway, or prefer to stroll along the seafront before climbing to the heights. Or you can simply drive to Èze from Marseille or any other French or Italian city.
You can then book a cab to take you to the Château, or book a private chauffeur service for even greater comfort.
Kingdom Limousines can take you to your hotel from any city on the Côte d’Azur, without fatigue or stress. You’ll settle into a top-of-the-range, state-of-the-art vehicle. You’ll find snacks, magazines and Wi-Fi on board. You’ll also have a professional driver on hand to meet your every need.

Discover the region from Château d’Eza
Our private chauffeur service also makes it easy to explore the surrounding area. For example, you can visit the stunning Villa Kerylos, a reconstruction of an ancient Greek villa. Just as close (less than 5 km), you can drive to La Turbie, a pretty medieval town, Beaulieu-sur-Mer, a very exclusive seaside resort, or Monaco. If you’ve got more time to explore the region, plan a trip to Nice, Menton or Cannes, not forgetting Peille, an incredible hilltop village.
It’s also possible to explore Provence. You can be taken to Lac de Castillon, not far from Saint-André-les-Alpes, the lunar landscape of Annot, Digne-les-Bains or the medieval town of Entrevaux. The Mercantour National Park and Italy are also within easy reach for hikers and transalpine shoppers.
