Le Chevre d'Or

On the French coast east of Nice sits the tiny village of Eze. Presiding 1,300 feet above the cobalt-blue Mediterranean, it is easy to forget that this restored medieval town was designed for military defense, not tourist dollars. Eze's stepped, serpentine alleyways and flower-decked cobbled passageways are home to artisans and antiques dealers. Artist Wayne Hill climbed the steep hill to reach the Chateau Chevre d'Or, one of the finest hotels in all of France. Image # 03031.
