ÈzeFrance

Perched high above the shimmering Mediterranean, this town has the jaw-dropping beauty of the French Riviera with a serene charm lacked by bigger resorts.

Wander through winding, cobbled streets to discover cafés among hidden courtyards and squares in beautiful Èze. Enjoy spectacular coastal views from tropical gardens or walk to tranquil soft sand beaches.

Built around the remains of a 12th-century castle, Èze brings the best of France’s beautiful heritage to this idyllic clifftop setting. Many of the narrow roads are flanked by high stone walls. Open spaces come alive with local people.

Sit in a café and enjoy the rich aromas that drift toward you from market stalls. Bowls laden with herbs and spices provide tasty meals. Find shops selling intricate handcrafted sculptures and carvings or visit one of the renowned perfumeries that operate from the town.

After these sensory treats, continue up the hill to the Jardin Exotique. At a height of about 820 feet (250 meters) above the sea are perfectly pruned areas of citrus trees and cacti set against a breathtaking backdrop of rugged white cliffs falling away into the blue water far below. Listen to the trickle of fountains and water features while you bask in the midday sun and gaze along the tumbling coastline. Ponder the statues of goddesses of the earth by Jean-Philippe Richard.

With the allure of the sea growing, take a gentle walk down the hill to a strip of golden sand that runs the length of the town and beyond. Swim in the calm, clear water or rent boats and kayaks to venture farther.

Èze is on the southeastern coast of France, a 15-minute drive west of Monaco and 25 minutes east of Nice. Restaurants cater for all budgets. Find accommodations in several small hotels and guesthouses around town.

Uncover a haven of serenity and beauty set along the renowned French Riviera at Èze.
