Fodor's Review

The "Château of the Golden Goat" is actually an entire stretch of the village, streets and all, bordered by gardens that hang from the mountainside in nearly Babylonian style; in addition to divine accommodations, it delivers some of the most breathtaking Mediterranean views—at a price. The fanciest guest rooms feature peasant-luxe fireplaces, faux 15th-century panel paintings, and chandeliered rock-grotto bathrooms; nearly all rooms, though, have exposed stone and beams, and even the cheapest have views over Èze's charming tile roofs (but you'll kick yourself if you don't pay the extra for the sea views). There are no fewer than four restaurants, ranging from the semi-affordable grill to a grand haute gastronomique dining room with panoramic vistas and a pair of Michelin stars. Linger over breakfast (€32) on a spectacular terrace that seems to levitate over the bay; then take a swim in the pool, which clings like a swallow's nest to the hillside. Giving further substance to Riviera fairy tales, liveried footmen greet you at the village entrance and wave you, VIP-style, past the cattle drive of tourists.
