Open: April - October... Château Eza Hotel is an enchanting Hotel and Restaurant tucked away in one of the most exciting sites on the Côte d'Azur.


General Information

Château Eza Hotel is an enchanting Hotel and Restaurant tucked away in one of the most exciting sites on the Côte d'Azur. Pretty as a postcard, the Château clings to the side of the ancient rock walls of Eze, a thousand-year-old medieval village more than 1300 feet above the Mediterranean Sea. It is a castle of stone on a narrow cobblestone street, too small for modern day automobiles. The service is fit for royalty and you will feel like a king in this castle of Medieval charm.



History

The Chateau Eza Hotel was built 400 years ago within the ancient city walls of the 9th century Village of Eze. In modern times, Chateau Eza Hotel served as the summer residence for Prince William of Sweden from 1923-1953. As an author, he did much of his writing in this location. His father Gustav V and his brother, Gustav Adolf, were both Kings of Sweden. The present King of Sweden, Carl Gustav, is Prince William's nephew.

The modern comforts of Chateau Eza Hotel did not come easily or inexpensively. Andre Rochat, the Swiss owner from 1976 until the end of 1993, did not simply put on an open for business sign. Before he opened his private residence to guests in 1985, he completely modernized and renovated the premises. All the construction materials had to be brought up the steep winding streets, 1,300 feet above the sea by donkeys which are still present to greet guests. The result was truly a masterpiece for all to enjoy.

The refurbishing by Enchanted Escapes is being done with the intention of preserving and honouring the many centuries of history and hard work that proceeded.
