The medieval village of Eze is one of the many hilltop villages found on the Côte d’Azur. From the first sight of this charming historic village, it’s not difficult to see why Eze is consistently voted one of the most beautiful villages in France
Eze village is perched majestically high on a dramatic cliff top that plunges 1400 feet into the Mediterranean below. Medieval Eze village is a winding maze of steep, cobbled streets which culminate in a viewpoint that is quite simply, awe-inspiring.
The view can be enjoyed from Eze’s botanic garden but also from one of the region’s finest restaurants at the heart of the village, the Chevre d’Or. Eze may be small, but it is a gourmet paradise, with no less than three Michelin starred restaurants. The village is an eclectic mix of quaint shops, art galleries, cafés and gastronomic restaurants.
There are two sides to the area defined as Eze; Eze village, on the hilltop and Eze Sur Mer, an exclusive neighbourhood by the beach with many luxury beachfront properties for sale.
Eze bord de mer is often considered a calmer alternative to other coastal communities as it is distanced from Eze village centre, which is set at altitude.
Property for sale in Eze bord de Mer is largely high-end, luxury villas. Being at sea level, villas and apartments for sale in Eze bord de mer have the added advantage of being very close to the beach. There are some exclusive, private beaches in Eze bord de Mer and you may well rub shoulders with some of the celebrity residents that call Eze home.
