Clinging on to the edge of a cliff Château Eza can be found in the thousand-year-old medieval village of Eze, more than 400 metres above the Mediterranean Sea, on the French Riviera, tucked away in one of the most enchanting locations on the Côte d’Azur.
With its uninterrupted panoramic views over the Cote d’Azur, Chateau Eza has reopened its doors after five months refurbishment. Only the 400 year old walls have remained untouched at this world famous boutique hotel and Michelin stared restaurant.
Once home to Prince William of Sweden, architects Alain Bennati and Alain Cecchetti of Cabinet Art-Tec had to incorporate authenticity and conservation aspects into the brief. Only the most exceptional European materials were used including; warm terracotta and Italian Emperado for the bedrooms and Travertine and Carrera marble for the bathrooms. Golden Fleur-de-Lis adorns the in-suite fabrics combined with the finest Egyptian cotton linens for the bedding.
With a focus on creating the ambience of romance, featured rooms have been masterfully accented with tones such as ‘lavish noble whites’ and ‘French royal inspired blues’. Six out of the 11 rooms have real working chimneys and the rustic Sarrazin bedroom rock walls give an air of authenticity. LED lighting has been used throughout the hotel, in-floor heating, geothermal windows and LED flat screen TVs only the of reclamation practices have been used to retain exposed ancient wood beams and rare parquet hardwood flooring.
All of the 11 exquisitely refurbished suites have luxurious en-suite bathrooms with some of the toilets costing €9,000 each.The ‘Chateau’ and ‘Panoramic’ suites feature large private outdoor terraces with Jacuzzis and the indoor shower/steam rooms are set to be a luxurious trademark of the hotel’s signature suites. Guests can expect only the crème de la crème at Chateau Eza.
