One of our stops while in the south of France was the charming town of Éze. It is on a hilltop that overlooks the coast, and views are spectacular. The town is full of winding alleys ways and cobblestone walkways lined with bougainvillea . At the top there is a lookout point where you are able to capture beautiful photos of the coastline. It is small and quaint, so it is a perfect day trip from Nice. The entire time I felt that I was walking through a storybook village.
When we arrived we started our day by getting marmalade filled crepes at the base of the town at the cutest little cafe. We then took off to explore the village. Although Eze is not “touristy” ( as in must see sights or museums), I found it to be one of my favorites. I loved to casually stroll down the streets and admire the architecture of this medieval village. As you reach the top of the village, you come to Jardin botanique d’ Éze which is a large garden filled with succulents (my fav) and cacti, but most importantly its panoramic view of the french riviera. The view from the garden is not to miss!
