Recommended place to stay:
Eze, Cote d'Azur, France|www.chateaueza.com|
Official star rating:
Charming, authentic and classy, this secluded, 17th-century chateau in Eze (between Monaco and Cap Ferrat) is fit for a prince. Literally, in fact: for years it was the summer residence of Prince William of Sweden.
With unforgettable views over this verdant, fabled sliver of coast, lapped by turquoise sea, the hotel’s rooms and suites are ideal for honeymooners, with four-posters, ornate, traditional furnishings and private terraces – some with Jacuzzi tubs. There’s no swimming pool, but it’s only a short drive to lovely local beaches.
Although hard to leave, it’s convenient for popping down to the sights and beaches, but worth returning for dinner at its panoramic restaurant terrace, one of the Cote d’Azur’s most romantic dining spots.
