LA CHEVRE D’OR
History & Story
La Chèvre d’Or is a unique “diva”, timeless, a jewel sparkling above the Mediterranean.
In 1953, Robert Wolf fell in love with Château de La Chèvre d’Or and turned it into a restaurant.
On the advice of Walt Disney, so they say, he acquired houses in the village and transformed them into hotel rooms. The hotel later became one of the six stops of the “Route du Bonheur”, the beginnings of the Relais & Châteaux association. Through time the different owners have continued to increase the number of rooms scattered through the medieval village.
Rooms has been refurbished since a few year.This year additional renovation. Regular each year during the closing annual period
