A perfect honeymoon is maybe the most important aspect you have to consider when deciding to get married. When wedding preparation tend to become a pain in the butt, at least make sure that, after it’s over, the relaxation will be guaranteed. The “back to nature” trend brings you back in the middle of wild nature, where several boutique-hotels wait for you and your partner to celebrate your love.
Chateau Eza, Cote d’Azure
Situated in a splendid location, on a rock, 1,300 meters above the Mediterranean Sea, the delightful Chateau Eza is now opened after a restoration process which lasted for five years. Built in the 17th century, the hotel still holds the original stone walls, the oak beams and the fireplaces in each room. Located at a 15-minute drive from Nice, the luxurious boutique-hotel has only 10 rooms and 2 suites and is a very exclusive and pleasant honeymoon destination. Each room offers a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean, the restaurant serves “nouvelle-cuisine” dishes and the terrace holds a huge jacuzzi…in a word, everything you need for a splendid honeymoon. A double room costs from $570 (400 Euros) per night, while the suites prices start at $1,280 (900 Euros) per night.
But don’t imagine everything you can do at this hotel is just sit, eat and bath in the jacuzzi, because the hotel also offers one-day fishing trips or yacht trips. Not to mention that it’s located only 10 km away from Monaco and 50 km away from Cannes, both offering countless entertainment choices.
