Auberge de la Croix du Pape is a former olive mill named after a cross here to mark Pope Pius VII's visit in 1814. Auberge de la Croix du Pape on the great driving road Route de la Grande Corniche between Nice and Monaco has stunning views of the mediaeval village of Eze and The Med. It takes its name from a cross outside commemorating Pope Pius VII staying at the auberge 200 years ago. The Pope came this route to crown Napoleon Bonaparte the Emperor of France and to marry him to his Austrian bride ( no, not Josephine). We have 5 rooms for up to 11 guests. The rental charge includes only the rooms and ensuites. Rooms are listed separately on another website but you can inquire about booking all the rooms collectively here. These rooms are like motel rooms with their own access from outside. The only cooking facilities are on a barbecue, and in the breakfast room a microwave and electric hotplate are provided. If you have the Olive Mill Suite we can provide those cooking facilities in that space. We will do everything to provide what you need. Enjoy a large terrace and great views. Some areas are still being renovated, but that should not detract from enjoyment of a great location. We can provide continental breakfast for 7€, please order in advance and ask for details. One room has single beds and the other four have double beds ranging from 140 to 190cm wide. Each room has its own ensuite. English-speaking host Geoff Milner will guide you on how to get the most out of your visit to the area. We are renovating the Croix du Pape, which is no longer open as a restaurant upstairs, but can be hired separately for a private party or celebration such as a wedding or anniversary for an extra charge which is discounted if you are renting all the rooms.
Five rooms with ensuites.
