With sweeping views of the Mediterranean 400 meters below, the beautiful and romantic Château de la Chèvre d’Or is located on one of the most dramatic spots along the Côte d’Azur.
Interiors feature fine stonework and beamed ceilings and are furnished with French and Italian antiques. Outside walls covered with ivy and bougainvillea surround a terraced swimming pool, and a patio sheltered under graceful arched colonnades makes an idyllic spot to while away time.
Guest rooms are tucked into the ancient stone walls and open onto views of the coast or the hillsides.
Dining here is a phenomenal experience. The hotel offers three restaurants and a Louis XIII-style bar.
Dazzling views of the Mediterranean
A Michelin-rated gourmet restaurant is perfect for that romantic occasion.
