Gail in France & Switzerland

Travel Advisor Gail Gilleland just got back from visiting some beautiful hotels in France and Switzerland with her charming hosts Jean Pierre Jonqua and his son Bernard of Creative Destinations. Their collection includes unique properties in some of the world's most beautiful settings. Starting in the south of France and winding her way north, here is a recap of the properties Gail visited.

Hyatt Regency – Nice, France
  • Virtuoso property 
  • Lovely outdoor bar 
  • Great for arrivals or departures in and out of Nice 
  • Highly recommend the renovated sea view rooms over the city view rooms

Chateau de la Chevre D’or – Eze Village, France
  • Relais and Chateau property
  • Stunning setting as the ancient village clings to the cliffs
  • Most rooms face the sea and are actually former villager’s homes that were purchased by the property making each room very unique.
  • Amazing food
Chateau Eza – Eze Village, France
  • Right next door to Chateau de la Chevre D’or
  • Small Luxury Hotel property
  • Only 12 rooms
  •  It has a wonderful sense of place
