The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Located between Nice and Monaco, the commune of Eze profits from two sides: side sea and side mountain. Eze Bord-de-Mer is turned towards the large blue sea, sheltered by St-Jean Cap-Ferrat, offering all the pleasures of a seaside resort. Eze-Village is perched 427 meters above the sea and is surrounded by the sea and the sky. Releasing an atmosphere of authenticity and traditions it turns us towards the past. It is regarded as one of the most beautiful villages of the Riviera.
Eze Bord de Mer constitutes a vacation resort appreciated for its calm and peace in any season and extends from the sea of Cap Estel to the point of Cap Roux. A vegetation of banana trees, date palms, caroubiers, mandarin trees and lemon trees testifies to the extremely pleasant climate reigning here the majority of the year. The beach of Eze, which one does not see off the road, is shaded by a maritime pine forest going down to the sea. On the beach, the western part is occupied by the imposing silhouette of the villa Les Roses, property of the rock'n'roll group U2.
Eze-village, one of the most picturesque villages and major tourist attraction on the Cote d’Azur ,is perched on the summit of an imposing and superb cliff. A must to be visited. The sunny streets accentuated by several small town squares, curve to the summit of the village dominated by the ruins of a medieval fortress. The medieval city shelters many traditional houses where craftsmen, artists and big culinary chefs work. You will see, from your terrace on the beach, the village and its fortifications.
To join the entry of the village, you may walk, starting from your apartment on the beach, along a small pedestrian stone way polished by time (Nietzsche path ), offering you a magnificent sight on the superb gardens of the Chateau de la Chevre d’Or (duration of the walk: 1h15mn). You will discover a small village of Provence full with charm, liberally flowered and offering superb panoramas on the sea and the coast. The old medieval village is entirely pedestrian. Small stone lanes, arched passages, superbly restored stone-built houses, shaded small town squares, refreshing old fountains, you will go from amazement to amazement. Like a set stage, the village will seem almost false due to its beauty! Many small shops of craft industry will capture your curiosity (some resemble small caves dug in the rock). The lanes of the old medieval village are a true testimony of the history of Eze. The two Towers of (garde) to the entry of the village, the Postern and the Drain-hole are classified historic monuments.
