The Chateau Eza, now converted into a luxury hotel, owes its name of "Castle" to a princely choice. Built 400 years ago within the walls of the village of Eze 9th century, his story resembles a fairy tale, combined with those of a prince of a francophile and patron clairvoyant confidence in the future. In 1920, William of Sweden certainly visit the village with her father King Gustav V.
