I am excited to announce that over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll be running a special series of guest posts on one of my favorite topics. France. I knew that I couldn’t be the only one out there dreaming about travel to France, so I have enlisted the help of some other travel bloggers and writers to find out what they love about France or why they are dreaming of traveling to France.
Without further ado, here is Lisa:
Ooh, la, la, the idea of writing about a French Fantasy had me wandering in so many directions. Wouldn’t you, if someone asked you to reveal a “fantasy?” Yet, it was pretty easy when Robin invited me to write this article because there has been one French bookmark under my “Favorites” for at least two years now, so the dream has been simmering and conjuring up all sorts of ideas. However, this is a destination blog so let’s travel back to earth.
I first heard about Eze, France while the TV was on in the background one evening. I wasn’t paying much attention to the travel show until I looked up and noticed the most romantic little village tucked in the middle of nowhere and then my investigation led me to Chateau Eza and oh, my, my.
The Chateau is located on the edge, quite literally of the Cote d’Azur. I had to look twice because the merging of the sea and the sky here looks so much like Italy’s Amalfi Coast, my soul’s home, that Eze had me at Merlot. (Oh, please, feel free to stop me at any time!) This little 400-year-old love nest sits on a craggy cliff and only offers 10 intimate and luxuriously romantic rooms. (Just check out the Suite Eza with the bathtub on the terrace overlooking the sea. I mean this ain’t no Jacuzzi atop a no-tell motel)
My fantasy has something to do with tall, dark and handsome (the names have been redacted to protect the gorgeous) in the Deluxe Room with its cozy fireplace and canopied bed. You can fill in the blanks because I’m not giving it all up here in cyberspace. Afterall, we’ve only just met.
