Eze – one of the most beautiful villages in France

EzeEze is a medieval village from Provence, which left us completely fascinated.After seeing the opulence and glamour of Monte Carlo , we stopped for a while in Eze, which was like a breath of fresh air on a hot summer day.This place, is in our opinion one of the most beautiful villages in France.



Because we liked this place so much, we made many pictures that we are going to share with you in this article.

Eze is situated between Monte Carlo and Nice , at above 500 m(1,401 ft) above sea level and has only one entrance, dating back to the 14th century.The narrow streets of the village are paved with rock and host many art galleries and cave-shaped boutiques. We found here many beautiful paintings and souvenirs. If you’re a fan of perfume and cosmetics,  in Eze you can have a free guided tour of the Fragonard perfume factory. A few restaurants and hotels are ready to serve you , in case you decide you want to spend more time in Eze (Chevre d’ Or  and Chateau Eza, not actually a castle).

The cherry on top of the cake was the exotic garden of the village, Jardin botanique d’Èze. Even though climbing the steps till there was a bit tiring, the panorama was worth the effort. As you can see from the pictures, the garden was very beautiful and it had a great view over the Mediterranean Sea. Sun, exotic plants, contemplative statues, what can we say more – it was an oasis . From here you can have a great view over the church Notre Dame de l’Assomption  and Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, another beautiful place on the French Riviera.
