Château EzaAmong the most sought-after addresses in Èze, if not the entire French Riviera, Château Eza is a 400-year-old castle with 14 rooms where you’ll feel like royalty. Original exposed stone walls, integrated fireplaces, period oil paintings, and antique-style furnishings play off sleeker, more modern fixtures and fittings in the bathrooms, including hydromassage showers and Jacuzzi bathtubs. Public spaces are just as regal with plaster walls, velvet and silk upholstery, and fantastic views over the community of Èze and the Mediterranean Sea. The château's Michelin-starred restaurant is nothing to scoff at, either. While its breezy sea-facing terrace and indoor dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows are reason enough to visit, the cuisine is nothing short of superb; don't miss the degustation menu, featuring seasonally specific dishes made from the highest quality French ingredients, like hazelnut-crusted veal and mushrooms with autumn salad and truffles.

Beyond Beautiful Medieval Castle
Driving from Spain to Italy I needed a stop-over for a night and chose Chateau Eza in Eza in the south of France. It turned out to be the high light of my trip this medieval castle turned into chateaus and quaint shops. The views of the Côte d'Azur from the cactus garden, the 5 star food, the small pizza places, the perfumeries and the one-of-a-kind shopping made me want to stay for week! On the way out of town, I pretended to be a fashionista walking along the main street running along the coast in Monte Carlo and ate fresh octopus salad and drove along the same route as the Grand Prix.
