Eze: The Charming Village That Crowns the Côte d’Azur!

Eze is one of the gems of Côte d'Azur. Perched 429 meters above sea level and next to the town of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, this small town offers visitors a variety of landscapes.

A mineral site facing the Mediterranean, Eze is one of the most beautiful villages of the Côte d’Azur. Overlooking the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat peninsula, it owes its reputation to its diverse landscapes and remarkably preserved medieval architecture. Characterized by a multitude of little alleyways and small winding roads, Eze possesses a lovely and relaxing atmosphere that attracts many artists, including Bono of U2 who owns a house in the town. On the side overlooking the coast, the panorama is simply sublime! The view over the bay of Monaco is stunning and the surrounding white sandy beaches guarantee a holiday atmosphere.

Bougainvillea, cypress trees, Stone pines... Here, nature is radiant and omnipresent. Eze also features many tourist attractions including notably the famous village church of a neoclassical style. The exotic garden is also one of the monuments to put on your list. This magical place atop the village houses an important collection of succulent plants such as cactus, agave or aloe. Eze is full of beautiful surprises! Stuck for ideas for your summer vacation? Buzzfeed is clear: Eze is one of the most truly charming places to see before you die, behind Burano, Italy or Oia in Santorini, Greece. It would be a shame to miss out!
