Amidst the marvelous coastal landscape of the French Cote d’Azur lies the picturesque medieval village of Eze.
The main part of the village that can still be seen today was created in the 10th century, during the Middle Ages. Tranquility seems to almost overflow from quaint windows onto the streets of this charming village, in which its narrow alleyways and stone buildings mix with the lush green of the trees.
Eze radiates summer freshness and in a magical kind of way, light and shadow unite to form a magnificent picture of pure beauty.
Breathtaking, panoramic views down to the Mediterranean are an additional treat and located around the village’s castle, the Cactus Garden is yet another attraction.
For real old world charm, this is the place to be!
