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, and offering 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. There are no fewer than four restaurants, ranging from the semi-affordable grill to the haute gastronomique grand dining room with panoramic vistas. Linger over breakfast (€38) 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.

A Fairy-Tale Getaway

It's quite possible that no hotel in the world matches CdO's ambience, atmosphere, view and old-world charm. If there was a possibility of rating it "6" for atmosphere, we'd have done so. The rooms are generally small for the price, but elegant, complete and charming (though they need to get rid of the we-don't-trust-you hangers that can't be removed). The service is very good. And you pay for what you get, so it's not a bargain. But, for a memorable

getaway, it's amazing. We chose it for our marriage, hosting 60 of our closest friends for the weekend, and it lived up to our lofty hopes and expectations for the event.
