A medieval village:

The entrance to the medieval village is only five minutes from the bus stop. From the entrance, "La Poterne" bears the traces of the various assaults suffered over the centuries.

It was the Moors, then the Saracens and finally the troops of Louis XIV at the beginning of the 18th century who, by destroying the castle, gave the village its very particular silhouette.

 

Its restaurants, shops and artists:

In Eze, you have to stroll along the narrow streets, let yourself be carried away at the turn of a vaulted door, by a square shaded by a false pepper plant or by the sound of a fountain.

The old seigniorial or peasant houses now house shops, artists' or craftsmen's workshops where they work with olive wood, leather, silk...

Eze-Village is also a popular stopover for gourmets with its gastronomic restaurants and inns with Mediterranean specialities.

 

His exotic garden:

The alleys follow the relief of the rock up to the top of the village. There, in the ruins of the castle, the exotic garden. Hundreds of plants, cacti, agaves, aloes but also tree ferns, papyrus, etc. grow at 429m. above the Mediterranean Sea.

The view goes as far as Saint-Tropez, Corsica is visible on a clear day.

 

Its beaches and hikes :

The most courageous or nature lovers will extend their visit with a hike to the beaches of Eze Bord de Mer or access the park of La Revère on the Grande Corniche at over 700m. altitude.

From there, the 360° view leads to Italy and the Alps overlooking the French and Italian Riviera.
