Much Needed Peace and Quiet on Our European Tour
Posted May 9, 2015
The Chateau was exactly what we needed in the middle of our honeymoon tour of Europe. It was as far from the hustle and bustle of major cities like Paris and Barcelona as we could get and we loved it. The hotel was a bit difficult to get to initially. We arrived at the Nice airport, walked to the train station, hopped a train, only to walk to a shuttle stop that took us to the top of the hill near the hotel. From there our baggage battled epic cobblestones as we got lost in the little medieval village. Yet despite all that, the trek was worth it!
The room was perhaps the most comfortable room we stayed at among the six hotels we visited. To be honest, we were so tired that we slept a good portion of the two days we were there. When we woke up, we hopped the shuttle down into Cagnes Sur Mer and walked about the town and down to the beach. There wasn't much to do and see, but the small town atmosphere was a welcome respite from the big city sights and sounds. The rest of our time was spent wandering the little sleepy medieval village which had a charm all it's own.
We did have dinner at the Chateau Le Cagnard restaurant and for someone who does not do fine dining, I was particularly impressed. It was our most expensive meal of our two week trip and I definitely see why. The food was delicious and surprisingly filling. I would recommend the splurge and trying it at least once on your visit.
