From this village overlooking the sea, the view embraces a 360° landscape from where you can admire the snow-covered Mercantour massif, Italy, Saint-Tropez and Corsica on a clear day, on the horizon.
Accessible from the "moyenne Corniche", situated on a rocky spur 429 m above the Mediterranean, Eze is a village perched between the sea and the mountains facing the sea.
Lost in history, Eze Bord de Mer was reborn as a seaside resort at the end of the 20th century. The charm of the village attracts and becomes the gathering place for walkers from Nice. Eze sur Mer will then become international by welcoming a Russian colony wishing to escape the massacres of the 1917 revolution. The painter Sakarof, Princess Antoinette, sister of Prince Rainier of Monaco, and Bono from the U2 group also let stay in this village of a thousand facets.
Eze benefits from a unique geographical position, as this village perched high above the sea, with sunshine all year round, enough to succumb to its charms in a few minutes... Between the seaside resort, the high perched village and the botanical garden, Eze has everything to make the most of its charms...
With its legendary charm, you will appreciate its fairy-tale views from its cobbled streets with shaded squares, full of history. It is in the old seigniorial houses that artists find inspiration and craftsmen working with olive wood, leather or silk, under the curious eye of the passengers.
Eze is also a gastronomic stopover, with starred chefs who are heirs to the French tradition and a highly exceptional hotel offer. Adrenalin lovers will not regret this obligatory stopover, with its vertiginous paths in the heart of the Mediterranean scrub, they will reach the seaside, crossing bougainvilleas and wisteria, to enjoy its shaded beach of a maritime pine forest where the famous philosopher Nietzsche finished his work "Thus spoke Zarathustra".
This is how Eze will promise you the time of a stay or the time of a lifetime, a tailor-made trip to suit your desires.
The Garden of WondersDiscovering the Botanical Garden. This is a place not to be missed, it offers one of the most beautiful panoramas of the coast.
Housed in the ruins of a medieval fortress, it is home to hundreds of succulent plants, cacti, agaves and other crassulaceous plants with surprising shapes such as the old man's candle covered with white hair.
Along the paths, female statues punctuate the progress of visitors. Answering to the names of Chloé, Barbara, Isis... they call out to passers-by with a quatrain composed by the artist. From the top of the garden, from the Côte d'Azur to Saint-Tropez, the panorama is striking.
A contemplative space equipped with deckchairs encourages visitors to soak up the landscape.
